Agree fully here.

We wanted to to make a change a year or so ago. So rocked up to a Gift trade show, using my totally unrelated ABN, and some documentation which kind of showed that a landscaper needed to purchase gift ware (well I am sure we do), but that got us in the door, and you will be suprised at the number of wholesalers who were happy to deal with us on the basis that we had the ABN, and a plan of what we wanted to do.
