Business Tasmania

Starting a business

Tasmania is a dynamic place to get your business idea out of your head and up and running. We are an island of entrepreneurs, with 97% of our business population made up of small businesses and the highest business survival rate in the country (source: Tasmanian Business Growth Strategy 2019-2023).

If you are thinking about starting a business, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got you covered from having an idea, planning your business to expanding your place in the market and everything in between.
