If you are starting up a Australian business, it is a good idea to make a budget and business plan first, before moving onward with your goals. These documents can help guide you along the way and allow you to see what you may be lacking funding for, and how much money you may need. Also, if you have these things you may be more easily able to apply for a government grant or loan for your business if you meet the eligibility requirements of the program you choose.
You can also take advantage of the Small Business Startup Assessment Tool below and see the tools and resources you need to succeed at launching your business. It takes just a minute and will also tell you if there may be any funding programs available.
