HOME-BASED BUSINESS

Home-Based Business

Home-based businesses are a large part of the Australian business community, with nearly one million people running a business from home.  If you're thinking of starting a home-based business or are currently running one, you can maximise your chance of success by ensuring that you understand the risks and government requirements that apply to you. These include taxation, employment, business finances, insurance for home-based businesses, council approval and licensing requirements.

Home-based Business Tax Considerations

If your home is also your place of business, you can claim income tax deductions for a portion of the costs of owning, maintaining and using your home for this purpose. When you sell your home you may be liable for capital gains tax. It's important you keep the right records.
 
The Australian Tax Office (ATO) provides information including a Home Office Expenses Calculator and a Home Based Business Webinar to help you understand tax and your business.
