Frequently Asked Questions

About Foreign-Owned Business Accounting
Below are answers to some of the most common questions our foreign-owned business tax accountants get asked.
  • What is important to know about doing business in Australia?

    Business structures are one of the most important facets of business ownership in Australia. A company structure is the structure most favoured by foreign-owned entities entering Australia, whereby at least one director is an Australian resident for tax purposes.

  • What is transfer pricing?

    Transfer pricing is when an international entity transacts with its Australian entity/ Transfer pricing rules are important for foreign-owned businesses operating in Australia, and are strictly outlined by the ATO.

    Most importantly, the price of goods and services between the two entities must be at market rates. Setting unrealistic prices in other jurisdictions is against the rules. Contact our team to find out more.

  • Is my business classed as a resident or non-resident for tax purposes?

    Most foreign-owned businesses will operate under a company structure, as discussed. A company can only become an Australian resident if it was incorporated in Australia. It must also conduct all business in Australia and be controlled by Australian residents, or locally-based managers.

  • What registrations do I need to make when setting up an Australian business?

    Once you’ve created a company structure, you’ll need to undertake your registrations. This will involve getting an Australian Business Number (ABN), understanding whether you need to register to pay Goods & Services Tax (GST), and getting a tax file number (TFN). We can help with all of these tasks.
