    Hi all,

    As you know registering a business name as a sole trader or under a trading name other than your own which is more than likely your business!

    Have a question. If your register for an ABN as a sole trader but also register a business name does that ABN only qualify for that name! Or does that ABN trade for you as a sole trader and the registered business name only used as a gateway for business! Meaning that if I was to start another business could I use my original ABN and ad another business name to it?

    Cheers

    I wouldn’t mind $10 for every time this question gets asked :)

    Sole trader (no company, or partnership) one ABN, multiple business names under it if needed.

    It’s one ABN per “entity”, i.e. an individual (sole trader), partnerships and companies are legal entities in their own right, so have their own ABN’s.

    Hope that helps
