The workshop covers essential knowledge on getting ready to take your business from idea to reality and onwards to success. Check our events page for the next available date or find more details on the Small Business Victoria website.


Insuring your business

It’s essential that your business is adequately insured. A standard Home and Contents policy will not cover most home-based business.
Get advice from your insurer about the correct type and amount of additional insurance you may need. In addition to insuring your premises, also consider insurance for: public liability, product liability, professional indemnity, motor vehicle, Victorian Work Cover Authority insurance, personal injury and income protection.

Learn more about insuring your business on the Business Victoria website.

Tax deductions for home businesses

When you operate some or all of your business from your home, you may be able to claim tax deductions runnings and occupancy expenses.
