Doing Business in Australia

When considering doing business in Australia you must first give consideration as to what your tax implications and reporting obligations are in Australia.

The main questions to consider:

  • Am I required to establish an entity in Australia from which to trade, if so what type?
  • Will I have an Australian establishment from which my business would trade?
  • Should I set up a branch or subsidiary of my overseas business?
  • Am I supplying goods or services to Australia?
  • What tax issues and business registrations do I need to consider?
  • How do I set up an Australian business?
  • What are my obligations as an employer and the employee’s taxation requirements?
  • What are my responsibilities as a business owner?
  • What are my responsibilities?
  • Any other factors that I would need to consider when doing business in Australia?

Once again tax residency is fundamental to determine who has taxing rights over the Australian business profits.
