Starting a New Business

Starting a new business is an exciting prospect but the right planning is needed to turn your vision into reality – and it starts with the basics. Like it or not, every new business needs to get the fundamentals in place before operations can begin and at SB Partners we’ll take care of the boring bits so you can focus on what you need to do to get the doors open.

 

To get you started, we’ll help you to:

  • Decide on the best structure for your business – sole trader, partnership, limited company or trust
  • Prepare a business plan, cash flow projections, budgets, and trading forecasts
  • Assess your finance requirements, advise on the best sources of finance, and draw up the necessary proposals
  • Establish a good working relationship with your bank
  • Register for an Australian Business Number with the ATO
  • Complete registration procedures with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission
