If you plan on opening up shop down under yourself soon enough, then make sure not only do these factors come into play (location & line-of-business), but also taxes — what kind? And how much does it cost per year compared side our dear neighbors?
There is something for everyone here, and we can help you make a move over land or by sea-shipping certain items on ship's containers, so they arrive right when it suits your needs.
For example, if we're building a factory from scratch, expect taxes accordingly: VAT, staff income insurance & social security payments worldwide, and stamp duty fees upon purchase, including import duties.
In addition to this knowledge gap, there's also tax relief available through our state program Investment nanny. There will be exemptions from paying any duties for five years if it turns out.
To find reliable shoulders abroad, though (especially ones qualified enough), most people would recommend going through GT Invest or similar agencies here based locally.
