Choose the right Business structure

Selecting the right structure for your business is quite critical specially because there are multiple options, all with different pros and cons.

The most common type of business structure in Australia are:

  1. Sole Trader
  2. Pty Ltd Company
  3. Partnership
  4. Trust

You need to consider the following main criteria while choosing the structure of your business:

  1. Tax implications
  2. Personal liability of the owner something goes wrong in the business.
  3. Growth plan: Whether you have plan to bring in additional investors in the business
  4. Cost of set initial set up and ongoing compliance cost
  5. Asset protection

Australian tax laws are complex and dynamic, and changing your business structure at some point in the future can trigger a capital gains tax or stamp duty if there is involvement of real estate property. One need to think about both short term and long run consequences while setting up a business structure.
