Setting up a business in Australia as a foreigner is something that can be done easily as long as you know the process, and you know what you have to do.

The legalities that you will have to deal with are a lot, but ultimately it’s all worth it. Here’s what you have to do step by step, depending on the type of business that you are starting.

There are a number of important considerations for investors when deciding on how to enter the Australian market or when establishing a business in Australia. Investors will generally need to choose between establishing a new company, registering as a foreign company or acquiring an existing company. If establishing a new business, a variety of business structures are available, each with their own regulatory and tax considerations. Businesses may also need to establish their identity through a trademark, online and/or physical presence. The Australian Government provides a wealth of information online to allow investors to make the choices most appropriate to the nature of their business.
