We have just purchased an existing retail business. We have the ACN and Trust setup with no drama's. What are the specifics of running the daily business in the trading name. Do we need a seperate bank account (GST and ABN) for the Trading Name or do we just operate it as ACN PTY LTD ATF FAMILY TRUST under the Trust ABN's and bank account. The thing is we want to purchase additonal businesses and if/when we sell the business/es if the future we want potential purchasers to easily see the P&L for that particular shop. I am afraid if we operate all shops under the trust numbers will become muddled. So, what is the best way to account for each shop?
