Preparing to export
A business enterprise in Australia can be operated as a company, a foreign branch, a trust, a joint venture, an individual or a partnership.
The most common forms of operation are:
establishing an Australian subsidiary by registering as an Australian company. See the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) site: www.asic.gov.au/for-business/starting-a-company/how-to-start-a-company
registering as a foreign company. See: www.asic.gov.au/for-business/starting-a-company/how-to-start-a-company/foreign-companies
Taxation and legal obligations differ depending on which business structure you choose. The DIT team in Australia can put you in touch with legal professionals who give advice to British businesses looking to export to Australia.
