Want to ace compliance from the get-go?
Accounting for new businesses can be pretty overwhelming. There are so many decisions to make before you can even start trading – from choosing a structure and making sure you have the right registrations to lodging your BAS and getting payroll right.

Do you need an accountant to start a business?
You don’t NEED an accountant to start a new venture, but you’ll be much better off if you do outsource accounting for your new business. Letting a professional manage compliance tasks like GST, registrations and payroll means you’ll spend LESS time worrying about getting it right, and have MORE time to work in the role you do best.
Can an accountant help me start a business?
Yes! For new businesses, an accountant will help get your venture started on the right track. Using a professional means your business is future-proof, and it keeps you from making early mistakes that are hard to fix later on (not to mention, expensive). You don’t know what you don’t know!
Do I need to register my business for tax?
Yes, you need to register your business for tax. For new businesses, accounting services start with registering you for the right taxes to keep your compliance process smooth. You’ll need a tax file number and other registrations to lodge a tax return, no matter the size of your company. You can find our must-do business compliance checklist here.
Where can I get advice on starting a business?
Your success as a new business depends on the people (and professionals) you surround yourself with. You can get advice on starting a business from fellow small business owners, friends and family, an IT whiz, lawyers – and of course, a great accountant. We’ve developed the ultimate resource guide to tell you everything you need to know about accounting for new businesses in their first year.
