Even getting an ABN can be done after a business has commenced - the ABN questionaire asks if the business has already started trading, & it is one of the qualifying factors.

    Sorry if my original post offended you - I merely highlighted our different approaches, both of which are legal and valid.
    Ah to be fair, I assumed she does not need licences for a cleaning business but may be wrong.

    Whoah! Firstly, I wasn't offended. My post wasn't even directed at you. I was merely responding. There wasn't even a hint of a suggestion that you were evading tax. That is definitely an assumption of your own.

    You don't need an ABN as a sole trader. It depends on how you run your business. But yes, there are other things that are lawfully required if you are carrying on an enterprise and I have pointed that out.

    And if you are, say, working with hazardous materials in your cleaning then you do need a licence.

    Not able to check it out as it states that it is a "Closed Group".
    If you open it to the public I'd be happy to have a look
