Doing business in Australia – for US-based businesses


Ned Shelton, Managing Partner, and colleagues in the Australian office, Michael Clarke, Senior Manager, and Patrick McGinty, Tax Manager (Sheltons Accountants Australia) run through key Australian tax, legal, accounting and business aspects - especially with US-based companies in mind. The speakers compare the Australian position with that of the US, including company tax, GST, ASIC registration requirements, the concept of ‘public officer’, ABNs, setting up and running companies and branches, as well as visa requirements and aspects of employment law. The speakers work full-time in assisting overseas businesses exporting to and investing in Australia.
