Business Start-Ups & Structures

There are four main business structures commonly used by small businesses in Australia and we can help with them all:

Sole trader: an individual operating as the sole person legally responsible for all aspects of the business.

Partnership: an association of people or entities running a business together, but not as a company. A partnership is relatively inexpensive to set up and operate.

Company: a legal entity that is separate from its shareholders.

Trust: an entity that holds property or income for the benefit of others. Trusts require a formal trust deed that outlines how the trust operates, requires the trustee to undertake formal yearly administrative tasks and if you operate your business as a trust, the trustee is legally responsible for its operations. A trustee of a trust can be a company, providing some asset protection.

It is important to note that you can change your business structure throughout the life of your business.
