What is an Incorporated Company?

A company is a separate legal entity created for the purposes of business activity. There are two types of enterprise that are possible, and these are a proprietary company and a public company. A proprietary company has shareholders up to a maximum of 50 and is limited by its shares, it must have at least one director appointed. A public company must have at least 3 directors appointed and has no limit to how many shareholders own it. It can be listed or unlisted on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX).

For both proprietary and public company shareholders, liability is limited to the nominal amount of their shares, so no individual’s assets are personally liable. The tax rate for a company is between 26% to 30%. This is lower than 45% (plus 2% Medicare levy) which is the highest tax rate for an individual in Australia, therefore, a company structure may be a more viable option for individuals who reach this bracket.

A company structure is more complex than other types of business structures and there is more involved in winding it down. A company has a unique Tax File Number as well as its registered Australian Business Number.

Benefits of Incorporating a Company

Incorporating your company could give you some benefits such as:

  • Limited liability – The company has its own legal entity so the liability of members or shareholders is limited and generally they will not be personally liable for the debts of the company. (However, the owners (shareholders) may still be liable for a company’s debts, such as when they have provided personal guarantees to borrow money.)
  • Lower tax rate – Income generated by a company attracts a company tax rate. This may also be a disadvantage because the company tax rate applies from the first dollar of income generated.

However, there are additional legal obligations that company officers must comply with under the Corporations Act. If they don’t comply with the law and act in the best interest of the company, ASIC may take formal action against the company and/or its officers.

Register Your Company or Business

Incorporating your company or business, as mentioned above, is beneficial, but it’s not for everybody.  It’s best to know first whether an incorporation of your company or a different business structure best suits your needs moving forward. Once you’ve already given it a thought and decided to register your business, registering with the Australian Securities & Investments Commissions involves a few necessary steps such as coming up with a company name, having your constitution and by-laws ready, and establishing your share structure to name a few. You can do it all yourself or with the help of a private service provider such as Taxopia, so you can leave the processing to them. With the help from Taxopia’s Business Incorporation experts, you’ll be creating your company in no time without breaking the bank.

Your Incorporated Company Questions Answered

How much does it cost to incorporate a company in Australia?

If you’re looking to start your own company, you’ve come to the right place. At Taxopia, we have an online form to help you easily and quickly establish an Australian registered company under the Corporations Act 2001.

How is a Company different to another type of business?

Companies and other types of businesses are different creatures, and it’s important to ensure which one may suit your needs, depending on the responsibilities and controls you’re happy to have and what you intend to do with your goods / services.  

Companies are legal entities and so impose a great deal more legal requirements, fees (e.g. for regulatory registrations), record-keeping of official meetings, tax returns and compliance with the Corporations Act 2001, are subject to annual review by ASIC are responsible for their own debts and must maintain a separate business bank account. A key difference in creation and ending of either is that a Company needs formal registration and deregistration, as opposed to a sole trader’s business name which merely requires cancelling an ABN within 28 days of trading. Your accountant will be able to assist you with all of these requirements. They do this day-in, day-out. 

How to maintain proper registration of your Company?

You are responsible for notifying ASIC when any details of your Company change, e.g., address, Directors or Shareholders’ names. You can do this online or by completing the appropriate form found on the ASIC website.
