Business Start-ups & Structures

One of the most important decisions you will make when starting a business is deciding on its structure. The most common types of business structures in Australia are:

  • Sole trader
  • Company
  • Partnership
  • Trust

Before deciding on which business structure to use, it is important to seek advice from a professional. At FMW Accountants, we can guide you through those important decisions, assisting with:

  • Choosing a business structure
  • Registering your ABN, TFN, GST and business name
  • Setting up record keeping and accounting systems
  • Employer obligations including superannuation, PAYG and WorkCover
  • Buying a business or franchise
  • Preparing a business plan
