Welcome :D

Glad you found us.

Sounds like an exciting little adventure you’re on!

As far as how to do your taxes – keep receipts, and income and go to see an accountant. Consider searching for one now, start a relationship with them. I call mine regularly and it’s free if they do your tax each year.

You don’t have to be GST Registered, only if your turnover is over 75k

You can claim for all things that are expenses in running your business, advertising, sculpture materials, course materials, stationery etc. See accountant or ATO website for more info.

I don’t see why it would be any different if you are working part time?

Don’t be daunted! It’s just about educating yourself, and once you know.. well.. you know! :)
