  1. Hi, I am a small UK bereavement keepsake business expanding to Australia. I can export to funeral distributors but my main business is with hospitals, charities and directly with families and because our keepsakes are for funerals - timescale is vital. Therefore I'd like to set up an 'on the ground' presence so orders can be sent quicker. I'd like to run from the UK but just fulfill orders from inside Australia(no control/invoicing of orders being inside Aus)... my potential problem is that hospitals may insist on me having an ABN in order to pay invoices. So would my only other options (so I can get an ABN) be to become a sole trader / company and treat the whole Australia side of the business as it's own entity in Australia? I preferred the idea of having a little 'Australia desk' in the UK running orders from here and being taxed for everything in the UK. Any advice would be fab! Question from Cathy Milburn on 09/03/2020

    Hi Cathy,

    Thanks for your message. As discussed you need to take into consideration whether you have a permanent establishment in Australia, as this will have an impact not only on your tax obligations, but may also have an impact on the type of business structure or business registration required in Australia. The simplest solution is to simply apply for an ABN in the name of your existing UK company - and this is something we can easily help with. However, we can discuss in further detail offline as to whether this is an appropriate solution for you.
