New business

Hi all,

I am currently working in childcare in Vic and looking to start/buy a childcare business. I did a little research and found that I need to have Provider approval followed by Service approval.

I was just filling out the form for Provider approval and couldn't decide if I needed to register my company for the form purpose. because this what I want in the future to run a business under the company structure. should I apply for provider approval as a sole trader first? is it possible to change it later on to the company structure? if I register a company now then it costs money to keep it active and I am not sure how long all this process will take to get all the necessary documents before I start looking to buy/start my own business.

I am so confused and need guidance if someone can help.

Will often check in to share experiences, knowledge, skills etc to help out people in the ECEC sector as best I can
Appreciate that others might like to read only and that's ok too
Saw that no one had answered yet, was in the process of researching to help out a stranger on the internet but these two pointers seem better as 112 people didn't have any. Read the forum usage & policies and be a little more patient...
