    Hi, I have just joined.

    I am a graphic designer and budding web designer, and I have a question.

    I have been in a business partnership with my hubby for many years, and we have an ABN for the business.

    I want to start a separate business as a sole-trader. I think I will need an extra ABN. Am I right?

    Welcome to FS.

    Yes, as a sole trader your ABN is tied to your personal name and tax file.

    All the best.

    Just to confirm, you can run two business’ under the one ABN, however those two business’ must be of the same structure.

    So unless the second business is a partnership, you will need a new ABN.

    Hope this helps
