Which Business Structure is Right For You?

If you're an entrepreneur starting a business in Australia, it's essential to consider which business structure is best for your needs. Our Business Setup Advice provides tailored guidance for small and medium businesses, helping them choose the right organisational structure based on their specific goals and needs.

Different Business Structures in Australia

Sole Trader
A sole Trader means that the individual owns and operates the entire operations and is responsible for making all the decisions and managing everyday tasks. As a sole proprietor, you are also responsible for any debt or liabilities that may arise.


A partnership allows for the sharing of responsibilities and decision-making, as well as bringing different skills and perspectives to the table. However, remember that each partner becomes personally liable for the debt and obligations of the partnership.  


In a Company, ownership is divided into shares that can be bought and sold by shareholders. These shareholders elect a board of directors to make important decisions for the company and guide its operations.  

Discretionary Trust

Discretionary Trust gives the trustee maximum control over distributing income or capital to beneficiaries, making it a flexible choice for businesses with changing profit distributions. In addition, a discretionary trust offers asset protection and potential tax benefits.  

Unit Trust 

With this structure, a trustee holds legal title to the property for beneficiaries, who are typically the owners.

This type of trust is commonly used for investment purposes and offers flexibility in terms of adding and removing owners, as well as tax benefits where income can be split among owners.  

Joint Ventures  
Joint Ventures involve aligning with another business and sharing resources, profits, and control. While it can be a great opportunity for growth, it's important to carefully consider the potential risks and benefits.
