Starting a business in Australia - information session


The Town held its second Starting a Business in Australia Information Session with the City of Belmont and the City of Canning on 24 August 2017. This event was aimed at newcomers to Australia that have a business idea but do not know where to start. The event attracted approximately 80-100 attendees.

Our speakers included:

  • Andrew Maurice from the Small Business Development Corporation who spoke about the eight steps to starting a business.
  • Stanley Gibbs who spoke about the ATO and the services available to small business, which include an ATO app which can help small businesses with relevant tax and super information.
  • Cema Santos from the Immigrant Business Networking Association, who spoke about their services which aim to educate, connect and support migrants starting their business. 

Due to the demand for this event, there will be another session in the new year in March 2018. Keep an eye on our events section for the exact date and how to register.
