Become a sole trader with long term success

Launching a business as a sole trader means enjoying the simplest form of business structure in Australia. As a sole trader, you own and manage your business with your Australian Business Number (ABN), and you are personally responsible for your business taxes, debts and liabilities.

You must report all of your business income using your Tax File Number (TFN) and pay income tax on your combined personal and business income with Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) instalments. If your business has employees, you are responsible for withholding tax from their wages and paying their superannuation. If your business earns over $75,000 per annum, you will need to collect and pay the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and lodge your Business Activity Statement (BAS) at a time directed by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

"As someone new to sole trading, I had no absolutely no idea where to begin when it came to my tax return. My Tax Accountant at ITP was amazingly helpful and not only made the whole process simple and straight forward, but somehow actually enjoyable. I couldn't recommend him enough. I'll definitely be back next financial year."
