Hi folks, I'm new here, thanks for the owner of this forum for providing such a pleasant place and online community. Bravo! to you Ok, here we go... My business name registration is about to expire, and I got a few things to change down the road. I’m planning to expand our business into 3 different businesses/industries: 1. Furniture Removals 2. Information Technology (website development and computer hardware and service) 3. Retail (merchandising and accessories) Questions: 1. Can I have 3 business names using the same one ABN (i.e. go to Office of Fair Trading register 3 business names and link them with my ABN that I’ve been using for my Web Specialist business? 2. Ideally, should I do record keeping for each separately? i.e. make it easy when I want to sell one of the businesses in the future 3. Should I register all 3 different business names, OR just 1 business name and make it TRADING AS 3 different names? 4. Also when it comes the time to convert to a Pty Ltd / a company, is it gonna be easy to bring all these 3 business entities under a new company name? For instance Company A trading as business 1, business 2, and business 3. I'm based in QLD by the way, and I heard from some friends that the rule might be different when it comes to business name registration, especially regarding the circumstance I have as mentioned above?
