So what about in the meantime if I go out on my own, can I use my personal name with my existing ABN from another unrelated business or do I need to register another business name? I may need to hire someone, will this affect anything?


You can use your current ABN if you would like to invoice under the name associated with that.

You can operate as a sole trader and register for an ABN just under your own name (for free).

I’d also suggest you look into visiting your local Business Enterprise Center http://www.becaustralia.org.au/ for a free consultation and usually a referral for a free first visit to a local accountant.

good luck
