About this Event




Before you start in business you need to decide what business structure you want to establish. There are three basic business structures - sole trader, partnership, and Company. We run you through the advantages and disadvantages of each structure and help you decide which one is right for you at this time in your business journey. We also explain how to set up those business structures yourself.

We will run you through the most common legal issues such as council approvals, working from home, registrations such as GST and trademarks, tax and recordkeeping requirements, insurances for your business, and other licences necessary to run your business.

Entrepreneurship Facilitators are funded by the Australian Government and offer free support to people starting out in business.
