According to demographer Bernard Salt, the Sunshine Coast is the entrepreneurship capital of Australia so it's not surprising that we see a lot of new businesses starting up. Being a business owner is a lot more than just having a great idea and some funds with which to run with it. So getting the right information early on can save you heartache in the long run.
ASIC has developed some tools which help start-ups navigate some of the challenges new businesses face. You can either download the First Business App or visit their Plan & Start page. These provide you with some valuable information to get you on your way.
Of course, if you are looking for more personalised advice on how to start, manage and grow your business, your accountant is also a small business expert and available to assist you.
