When starting a business, choosing the right business structure is extremely important. There are many factors that can drive your decision, including the number of people that will be involved in the business, as well as the type of business you will operate and how much your approximate income will be. This is why you can benefit from experienced business lawyers in Melbourne, who can assist you with choosing the best business structure for your start-up.

Business Types in Australia

There are various business types in Australia including:

  • sole trader
  • partnership
  • trust
  • company

Each of these has its own benefits and drawbacks, depending on your specific needs and the type of business you want to operate. A sole trader means you will have all the control and keep all the profit, while a partnership is owned by two or more partners and income is received jointly. A trust involves a person or company running the business as the trustee, while a company is a legal entity trading in its own right.
