    Hi everyone,
    I have worked as a self employed environmental consultant for 13 years or so. Unfortunately, this work is slowly getting less and less. But … I see this as an opportunity to (slowly) go in a different direction: making bags and other helpful things from recycled materials.

    I have a lot of questions with regards to how to combine these two completely different things into the one business – do I use the same ABN? can I add the bag making as a new trading name to my consultancy business? how do I go about GST? can I start claiming expenses? (no need to answer these questions here and now – I will try to make myself a bit clearer in an appropriate spot and post on this forum).

    Cheers!
    Ak

    Hi Ak, and welcome to the forums,

    Recycling/upcycling is very popular right now, good luck getting your bag business
    off the ground.

    I encourage you to add a signature (via the Control Panel in the top left) so folks can see what you do at a glance.

    Here’s hoping you’ll enjoy the interaction within the forum.

    Cheers,

    Sam on behalf of the FS team
