Doing Business in Australia 2019

dba sydney 2017
7 February 2019

Australia is an exceptional place in which to do business. Our strong economy, skilled and multilingual workforce, competitive tax structure and stable political environment make us an ideal location for foreign investment.

Enjoying the benefits of relatively low set-up costs, easy access to the Asia Pacific region, a vibrant financial services sector and a time zone which accesses both the close of business in the United States and trading opening in Europe, Australia is one of the fastest-growing economies in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

Australia is comprised of primary industries such as resources, energy and agriculture, and has rapidly-expanding secondary industries in goods and services, IT, tourism and education. We have built up bilateral trade relationships with Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, China and the United Arab Emirates over many years, and are also party to a number of Free Trade Agreements, notably with the United States, Thailand, New Zealand and Singapore.

Australia welcomes and seeks foreign investment, particularly if it creates employment or introduces new technology. Increasing numbers of international businesses are locating their regional headquarters here, attracted by our temperate climate, relaxed lifestyle, high standard of living and business sophistication.

Doing Business in Australia answers the most common questions and issues raised by foreign investors, importers and exporters.

As laws concerning business and foreign investment are complex and can change, this overview serves as a guide only and should not be used as a substitute for specific legal advice on the application of Australian law.
