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.

When you're taking the first steps in starting up a home-based business, visit the Australian Government's Business website for a range of tools and resources.
