We've registered as a company today. Along with my aquisition (finally) of oxygenkiosk.com, we are now officially Oxygen Kiosk PTY LTD. Yes, we've dropped the the. We hope that that won't confuse you.
Unhappily, after the painless process of registering the company, we've been let down by the ATO's ABN application process:
The service standard as outlined in the Taxpayer Charter for the issue of an ABN is 28 days.
10 minutes to get the ACN and business registration, then a month to get an ABN? A month in which we can't get a bank account?
Good work ATO, loving your service standard and Taxpayer Charter.
