Being Self employed in Australia

When you arrive in Australia you may prefer to be self employed or set up your own business. This section will provide you with relevant information. If you are currently self employed or running a small business in the UK you may wish to continue this on your arrival in Australia.

Check if your trade requires a licence to work in your skilled area before setting up to avoid costly delays. You can check your preferred company name online to ensure that it has not already been taken or reserved. Once you have your premises or Australia address you can apply for an Australian Business Number which is then used on all stationary and websites for your company.

There are numerous ways to be self employed in Australia including independent Trades person, setting up a business or buying a Franchise. It is always a good idea to seek legal assistance when looking into any Franchise opportunity and thoroughly research the company before parting with any cash to ensure it is a legitimate business.
