| | Starting up a Property Maintenance & Handyman Services business
My name is Geoff & I am in the process of starting my own Property Maintenance & Handyman business. This is an exciting time for us & I'm looking forward to getting started asap.
Wanting to own & operate my own business is something I have been wanting to do for some time now, but after my wife had our 1st child a few years ago the security of the excellent paying job that I am still employed in at the moment put starting up a new business on hold. Some of you may say why leave an excellent paying job to start up a new business?, But my current job I work away from home & only see my family 2 days a week, so life is going to be very different for us shortly, but in a good way!
My wife & I have registered the business as a PTY LTD company. We decided with the company structure as our plans for the future are to expand the business & eventually have a fleet of hopefully 3 or 4 vans working for us. We've received our ACN but are still waiting for the ATO to issue us with our ABN; So untill then we are at a bit of a stand still as far as getting the printing done of our business cards, flyers to be sent out etc, as we want these things to have our ABN on them. We have just purchased a work van last weekend & have the majority of all the tools & equipment that is required to get started.
Being new to business it would be great to get some feedback, especially from anyone out there who has done or knows someone who has managed to build & operate a highly successful property maintenance/handyman business. There are so many questions I have, but instead of asking them all now I will see if some of my questions are shown as advice on here.
Look forward to hearing from anyone who can offer any sort of advice.
