Startup advise for online businesses

In the internet age, anyone can be an entrepreneur. All you need is a computer, an internet connection, and a great idea. However, while most people have the resources to start an online business, it takes more than just technology to make a venture viable.

If you’re serious about building a profitable online business, you need support from an online accountant who understands the digital space and what it takes to start a business. At Platinum Accounting & Taxation, we love working with startups. In fact, we’re a startup business ourselves.

Fast forward 10 years and we’ve grown to become one of Melbourne’s most awarded accounting firms with new offices in Melton and long list of happy clients.

Platinum Accounting is living proof that our startup business processes work. From creating a practical business plan to determining the best structure for your online business and helping you market your product or service, we guide you through every step. We even offer fixed-fee business coaching packages designed specifically for startups.
