The decision to start a new company is accompanied with responsibilities, such as meetings of Directors and Shareholders, ASIC and ASX (if listed) governance regulation requirements, ongoing ATO taxation obligations and general record-keeping.
Company start-ups involve a number of steps, including:
- Choosing a name
- Choosing your shareholders
- Electing Board Members, including a mandatory Company Secretary
- Deciding on a share structure
- Choosing a Principle Place of Business and a Registered Office.
Regular reporting to ASIC is expected once the company is set up. This involves administrative tasks throughout the year which can disrupt the focus from your core business, especially if your Board of Directors is small and inexperienced in corporate matters.
