Before you begin

In this section we are going to cover the base steps of registering your ABN and some considerations to make or get advice on prior to starting.

As small business owners, starting with an ABN is always the first step and also a fairly easy process to complete online.

For financial record keeping, registering your ABN does start your business journey and certainly as a free process, it would never be the wrong move.

However it is recommended to consider what your business structure will be.

What is a Business Structure?

Common options are:

Sole Trader – just your name, trading on your own

Partnership – potentially a spouse or business partner/s together

Company – legal entity separate from its owners

Trust – entity that holds property or income for the benefit of others

When should I consider?

As mentioned above, starting as a Sole Trader is not wrong, but seeking professional advice based on the businesses size, future growth, risk and liability are just a few reasons to think about the structure.

You can come back to this step at a later date if your business grows quickly or your personal circumstances change.
