Doing Business in Australia
In Australia, business is conducted in a transparent, well-regulated and politically stable environment. The 2013 World Bank Doing Business report judged Australia to be among the top 10 most straightforward and affordable countries in which to start up a business and in terms of overall ease of doing business. Foreign investment is welcomed, with all levels of government keen to promote business, economic development and employment growth.
Minter Ellison’s popular guide Doing Business in Australia gives readers an overview of Australia’s business rules, from foreign investment guidelines to taxation, consumer protection, intellectual property and the employment law system.
This plain-English guide has been fully revised and is current as at October 2013. It provides answers to preliminary questions frequently asked by those unfamiliar with the Australian business environment and is essential reading for anyone considering investing in Australia or starting up a business in this country.
