Dear my fellow translators,

I am wondering if a freelance translator in Australia need to register a business name at www.business.gov.au ?

Thank you

RafaLee

As a individual/sole trader, you don't need to register a business name. Your legal name is the same as your business name.

As a sole trader, you need to register a business name only if you wish to use a business name other than your own name.
