Thanks for all the responses. It’s been a great help.

I think I would view it more of a business, and as for the advertising, it wouldn’t be the usual Google ads, but rather ads for my clients. I would offer package deals, such as a review with advertising etc.

Now, another question – I have income from my normal day job, then I would have this business on the side to start off with. When it comes to tax time, does the ATO view my total income as both my day job and this new business, or are they kept seperate?

As I would have two seperate TFNs I assume they are seen as seperate?

And if it is seperate then my business wouldn’t make more than $75,000 a year, but it would be better to still register for GST?

Sorry if these questions sound dumb.
