    I am looking into implementing my idea into a new start up business and trying to figure out what is required from tax perspective like how should i set things up?

    Any help would be great.

    Cheers

    While tax advice can be helpful, don't get yourself so bogged down at the early stages that your idea gets lost. If it doesn't make any income, tax advice won't be much good.

    I'd get involved in the startup world to get inspiration and ideas first. Check out Fishburners in Ultimo, to see if coworking can suit. Or check out any of the many resources available for startups. Especially the "Lean startup" ideas to help you to determine if your idea has legs before you invest too much time and money.

    Perhaps legal advice is what you are after - structure, asset protection etc in addition to tax. Check out my tips in the legal and tax sections.

    From your profile your central coast - newcastle uni and central coast rda did have an incubator near tuggerah (uni campus there). Might be worth checking out.
