Session 3 - Get Set Up

  1. 1. Starting your own business may sound like a good deal. You can be your own boss and set your own hours. But how much do you know about getting started, and achieving financial success through business? When it comes to starting a business, one of the biggest questions to answer is: What do I need to do, and how much money & time will it take to get this business idea started?
  2. 2. WHAT WE WILL COVER & WHAT ACTIONS/ INSIGHTS YOU’LL LEAVE WITH Gain an overview of key legal requirements for setting up and operating a business in Australia.

  3. 3. During this session we will work on these parts of the canvas
  4. 4. Not sure about any terms being used? Have you checked your BUZZ WORDS? Starting your own business can be exciting. However, the process can feel overwhelming when you realise there are a number of regulations and government departments involved. Let’s look at registering your business and then break it down into some of the most important set up steps…
  5. 5. Registering your business: To officially operate your business, you’ll need to register for an Australian Business Number (ABN). You’ll need an ABN when dealing with other businesses, banks and the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Applying for an ABN can be completed online for free at www.abr.gov.au
  6. 6. Question: Before registering a business name, which of the following do you need: a) an ABN or ABN reference number b) a registered trademark c) a business logo?
  7. 7. Answer a) an ABN or ABN reference number b) a registered trademark c) a business logo The answer is (a) an ABN or Australian Business Number. To register your business you also need to decide on your business name.
  8. 8. Question: How long do you think it will take to register your business name? a) 5 minutes b) Within 1 business hour c) 24 hours d) 1 working week e) 28 days
  9. 9. Answer How long does it take to register your business name? a) 5 minutes b) Within 1 business hour c) 24 hours d) 1 working week e) 28 days 90% of people receive their ABN registration within 24 hours (or 1 business hour if you opt for the express service). The remainder are chosen by the ATO for a review before they issue an ABN. The review may take up to 28 days. If you pay for your business name registration by credit card, you will usually be registered within 60 minutes. Your record of registration will then be emailed to your email address. If you do not have access to a credit card or debit/credit card, and lodge your application manually, you can expect to have confirmation within 28 days via postage.

  11. 11. Activity: Let’s brainstorm together… Imagine you want to start your business, and as your first step, you log on to Vistaprint online to order your business cards. What challenges would you face? What steps might you have missed? The most common reason why businesses (big and small) fail – they run out of resources - specifically money! To ensure this does not happen before you even have a chance to get started, it is important to 'plan' the start up steps! In this way, you will avoid doing work that later needs to be redone, costing you additional, unnecessary time, stress and money.
  12. 12. MY ‘GET STARTED’ PLAN
  13. 13. Business Structure Criteria for other structures: ❑ Where two or more people share ownership of the business= Partnership/ Joint Venture ❑ A developed or high growth business with a Director and one Shareholder (although it can have more of each) and the ownership of the company rests in the hands of the shareholder(s)= Proprietary Limited Company. If you are a self-employing, start up venture you will most likely be a: Sole Trader If you conduct business alone -without a business partner.

  14. 14. Choose your Business Name – Check availability of Domain Name – Register your business & Secure your Domain Name and Hosting • A good business name should means something. • Your domain name (URL) is part of your brand, so it is best to make it short, easy to spell, pronounce, search for on line and instantly recognisable. • Do your research…Check domains, trademarks, search engines and social media sites to see if your preferred name has been already taken. • If you can’t get the domain you want, add another word, take a letter off, or add a letter or number. If your preferred name is in use, you will need to get creative! However, it is always better to go for a name not already in use to prevent confusion. • You will need both a registrar (e.g. GoDaddy) as well as a hosting site (e.g. Shopify or BigCommerce. A hosting service enables your website to be viewed online by storing your webpages on a server.
  15. 15. INSTRUCTIONS: Work in pairs and search on the internet for where to register your: - Business number - Business name. 16 Using the results you find in Google, can you identify what is legitimate and not? Hint: if the web address ends in .gov.au it is a legitimate website for registering. If it doesn’t – don’t use it!
  16. 16. Find the right financial service provider and product for you – Set up your Business Bank Account – don’t forget to understand and build the structure to fulfil your tax obligations. • Account Name • Transaction Sub Account • Savings / Growth Account • Tax (Set Aside) • GST (Set Aside) Remember the following ATO Support Services: Small Business Support ato.gov.au/SBsupport Business tax enquiries Monday 8 am – 6 pm Call - 13 28 66 Business tax self helpline 24 hours, 7 days Call – 13 72 26 ATO Indigenous Helpline Call – 13 10 30 Translating & Interpreting Call – 13 14 50 Activity: In small groups, work out what type of features a small business operator would need for each of the sub accounts.

  17. 17. Complete a risk assessment of your emerging business or enterprise to uncover what else you need to put into place (insurances, licences, registrations). Risk Probability Impact Action Plan to Mitigate …. Low / Medium / High Minimum/Significant/Severe Action Plan Steps ACTIVITY: As a group, lets identify risks associated with a catering business using pop up tents for service. Now, working on your own, use the above headings, to think carefully about your business idea. What could possibly go wrong (risk), how likely is that to happen (probability), how bad would it be if that did happen (impact). NEXT STEPS… You don’t need to resolve all the risks right now. Just ask yourself whether the risks are: 1. A deal breaker (ie its high probability with a severe impact)? 2. Something to keep on your radar & steps you can take to lower the risk? 3. Something that can be managed by delegation/ out-sourcing?
