Hi Jenny,

Since you are from overseas and claimed to be not familiar with the Australian tax system I would suggest you to find yourself an accountant for assistance for now and your future business affairs.

You mentioned you are about to get an ABN, you will also need to consider do you need to register for GST or not. This will have an impact on how you report your business income and expenses to the tax office.

As for accounting software, it’s a good idea, as you grow your business there will be more transactions and you should always get your compliance and paperwork side sorted to avoid any unnecessary problem later on, but for now if you can be organise and file all your documentation properly, you probably can manage your bookkeeping side on you own for the time being.

If you need more help I am happy to assist, just send me a message.

All the best for your business.
