Business Structures

What Are The Main Business Structures?

There are many ways to structure your business, depending on your budget, risk factors and tax considerations.

There are 4 common structures used by Australian businesses – sole trader, partnership, company and trust.

Sole trader and partnership structures are easy to set up, but tend to offer minimal protection of your personal assets. Company and trust structures are more suitable for growing businesses, but involve more red tape and admin costs.
