ABN or via a Personal Australian Business Number

Pty Ltd contracting is an ideal option if you prefer the flexibility and control of running your own company.As a Pty Ltd contractor you contract through your own proprietary limited company and need to:

  • Work with your accountant to set up the company
  • Register for GST
  • Procure and administer Workers Compensation insurance
  • Administer your own Superannuation
  • Acquire Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurances
  • Complete BAS statements as required
  • Prepare statutory accounts and pay for associated costs
  • Contract under the increasing legislative challenges associated with the Alienation of Personal Services Income test (also known as the 80/20 rule)

What Costs Are Involved? Contracting as a Pty Ltd contractor involves a significant cost and time investment. Before choosing this option you should first carefully consult with your accountant.
