Starting a Home-based Business
Lay the foundations for success by understanding the associated laws, costs and resource materials available.
Home-based businesses are a large part of the Australian business community, with nearly one million people running a business from home. Operating a business from your home offers a flexible, convenient and affordable option, and can often be a great opportunity to start a new career.
If you are starting a home-based business in the Parkes Shire, you must first consider the laws, regulations and associated costs involved. These include taxation, employment, business finances, insurance for home-based businesses, council approval and licensing requirements.
