What’s inside?

Your useful guide when setting up for doing business in Australia, with practical advice to make sure you’re on top of the requirements from the very start.

With this guide, you'll learn:
  • Different business structures and what’s usually best for startups
  • Overview of the key dates of government obligations
  • Advice on how to pick the right location for doing business in Australia
  • Government support, such as the R&D tax relief and other incentives
  • How to pay staff in Australia and the main visas you’ll come across
This guide is not a complete list of the many forms, visas and intricacies you’ll come across when doing business in Australia.

Instead, we’ve stuck to the key areas that are important when you are just setting up. We once were a startup too so we know it can all seem pretty complex to begin with!
