I have just started negotiating my way through the minefield that involves setting up and running a food business. ABN, Business Name Registration, Food Authority Registration, Insurance, Council Planning Permission, kitchen inspections... all are underway and a LOT more complicated and expensive than I expected!
I never wanted to own a small business or be a sole trader, this stuff is NOT where my key skills lie, but I DO want to make cookies. Lots and lots of cookies, and I'm afraid that all this rigmarole is a necessary evil.
At least now that I have an ABN, I can buy Decorator's Rose Spirit in the big bottles!
