Start an online business in Australia or Asia?

 

in Australia by @liztai | 6yr  | 23 comments

This is something Iโ€™m really torn about. I really love the lifestyle in Australia, but the high living costs means that I have to work hard at my day job to pay the bills while I get things off the ground. I wonโ€™t be able to save much either.

In Malaysia, Iโ€™ll have a stable day job, free accommodation and lower costs of living, but am unsure if itโ€™ll be more difficult to get my online biz off the ground because Iโ€™m not sure about the business contacts I can get in Malaysia.

What do you think? Start a biz in Australia or Asia?

hah heya. Yeah I would have said get out of Australia. Iโ€™m both Australian and originally Malaysian, although my parents renounced citizenship on immigration and Iโ€™m not sure if Iโ€™m entitled to a Malay passport. If anything your post makes me think I should look into it.

Australia is ridiculously expensive and imo doesnโ€™t offer much in the way of business contacts or local ecosystem with advantages. Most startups are looking to get out of Australia for a reason. Australian rates are high but the trade off there is small # of employers so not many gigs to go around. The US is still the sweet spot where rates are still higher than say Malaysia but there are many more of them employing remotely, however many are still anal about the US time zone thing.

Malaysia is a territorial tax country which means income derived from other countries isnโ€™t taxed there. Thatโ€™s a huge advantage for an online business. If I were you Iโ€™d move to a condo by the sea in Penang and try running your business from there for at least a few months. Create a product and sell it online to businesses from other countries then start outsourcing most of the work. Once the ball is rolling you can move anywhere you want in the world with little personal risk.

Hello Freedomsurfer,
Thanks for your reply. Penang is a gorgeous place to live :slight_smile: I am fortunate, however, that I can live in Malaysia relatively rent free which was why I was seriously considering the move. In Australia I live quite frugally but in Malaysia I will save tonnes in living expenses.

Out of curiosity were you based in Penang? I hear lots of location nomads recommending Penang and I wonder if there is a location independent scene there.

Iโ€™ve only been there a couple of times as a tourist, spent 2-3 months cumulatively. There is definitely an expat scene in Penang but not that much of a digital nomad scene.

My only experience living long term in Malaysia was in Kuching and I loved it there. I was probably the only expat in the city but everyone spoke English so I had no problem making local friends. Itโ€™s not the best city to live in if you are into nightlife but if you love nature, a good laksa and a relax vibe I definitely recommend it to you. Maxis has a fast LTE network there so the internet isnโ€™t a problem and centrally located apartments are very affordable.

Donโ€™t forget, the internet is location agnostic.

If you focus on getting clients in your location, youโ€™ll be tied to that location. Instead, open yourself up to clients from anywhere by marketing yourself online (a good test of your skills anyway!), and if their location doesnโ€™t matter neither does yours. Then you can do your work from Australia or Malaysia.

My vote is on Malaysia.

In my experience, working a day job leaves little energy or enthusiasm for side projects, so itโ€™s only worth it if the day job pays well enough that you can afford whatever luxuries you need to rejuvenate your mental and physical energies. You need to take yourself to the spa, get a massage, eat well and exercise.

If you canโ€™t afford to take care of and rejuvenate yourself, you wonโ€™t be able to give of yourself to your business. And a business takes nearly everything you have to give! I started a business a few years ago, and we werenโ€™t able to get off the ground because we simply exhausted ourselves and the team burned out.

I notice that you are from Malaysia, but have the feeling that your family might not support you starting an online business? Can you explain why you are unsure about making business contacts in Malaysia?

Hi there livvyjeffs thanks for responding!
I Am rather new to digital nomadism so am not sure if I can get international clients from Malaysia. Most Malaysian companies donโ€™t pay freelancers very well.

My family is pretty conservative and have the โ€œemployee for lifeโ€ mindset. They would probably talk me out of it than support me.

You have a point about the luxuries bit. The two years I have been here in Oz I have struggled mightily to finish my product. It was damn exhausting. I finished my ebook after a year!! During the time I wondered if it would have been far easier in Malaysia as I would be in a more relaxed frame of mind.

I see. Since youโ€™re in Australia now, start looking for customers while youโ€™re on the ground. Once you have just a few customers with an established relationship, youโ€™re probably safe to head over to Bali or Chiang Mai. You should get a nice portfolio online before you leave, and set things up so that itโ€™s easy for your clients to refer you out. Cost of living is about $30-$40 a day (very very comfortably) and all you need is the Internet. This way you can charge low Australian prices, and are likely to get referred if your products are good and your price is competitive, but make more than enough to live comfortably while traveling.

You should do some research on โ€œhow to be a freelancerโ€. Some basic things like setting up payment expectations up front and how to structure deliverables are important. There are so many ways to do this, some people charge per day, if youโ€™re a writer, you might charge per word or per article. And itโ€™s good to let people know up front about how much your time will cost, because it filters out the serious clients from the clients who are going to give you problems down the line.

How to stay in Australia for longer than 3 months


in Australia by @rose_davis | 1yr 1 year ago | 2 comments

Hey there!

Iโ€™m planning on spending 3 months in Australia next year on a tourist visa. Iโ€™ve already gotten my working holiday visa (in 2017), but unfortunately didnโ€™t get to take advantage of the full year (only stayed 3 months).

My boyfriend will be able to get his working holiday visa before we go, so Iโ€™m wondering if anyone knows of a way that I might be able to extend my stay (6 months would be ideal, if longer I wouldnโ€™t complain).

Iโ€™d like to do this legally of course, so Iโ€™m wondering about a student visa. Anyone have experience getting this to extend their stay?

And other workarounds that might be worth exploring?

Might also be worth noting โ€“ Iโ€™ll be working while Iโ€™m there (for a US-based company) and I am American.

Appreciate the help!

How do I ensure that getting refused entry to the UK won't keep me from getting an Australian 462 (work and holiday) visa?


in Australia by @allisonkirschbaum | 1yr 1 year ago | 0 comments

On New Yearโ€™s Day this year, I was refused entry to the UK due to not having proof of funds, an outward-bound plane ticket (I was road-tripping out with a friend via car) and not being able to prove that I had indeed canceled the lease on the apartment I had leased during a prior recent trip.

I havenโ€™t had any entry issues to any of the several countries Iโ€™ve visited after, but now Iโ€™m applying for a 462 visa (work and holiday) visa in Australia, and since Australia and the UK share an immigration info system, I want to make sure getting refused entry wonโ€™t keep me from getting a visa. None of the issues that cropped up in the UK (the proof of funds, the plane ticket, and the apartment) will be an issue in Australia, as Iโ€™ve never traveled there before, donโ€™t know anyone and will have proof of more than sufficient funds for the trip and an outbound plane ticket.

Anybody have any suggestions on how to make the approval process go as smoothly as possible?

Many thanks in advance! :smiley:

What's the best place to incorporate an online business?

 

by @octave | 1yr 1 year ago | 63 comments

I have an commerce website. We get around 1000 orders per month and this is going to get quite a bit bigger in next few years.

I am British. I live in Thailand.
Im not allowed to majority own a Thai business and small foreign entrepreneurs are not really welcome. So i need an offshore company.

I need PayPal and an ecommerce internet merchant account. Also looking at alternatives like worldpay. 2checkout etc

Does PayPal need me to be a resident to the country i register my account to? Are there complications being a non resident to get other payment solutions?

Apparently in Hong Kong you need 2 years trading history to get an Internet Mechant Account and they generally turn their noses up at those with less than $1m(us) a year turn over. Singapore seems a bit easier.

I really want to avoid paperwork and book keeping. I hate it.

So i was looking at Seychelles, Panama, BVI, Belize.

Does anyone have experience with payment providers in these countries?

Most nomads i see donโ€™t really have a high volume of small monthly transactions which i do. Im going around in circles and donโ€™t know where to start.

Ill also need a bank account for business and a personal bank account to pay my salary into

Foreigner owned Coworking business in Malaysia

Heyo folks! The idea to open up an own coworking space in Malaysia has been on my mind for quite a while and I would like to reach out on foreigners being a business owner/co working space owner in Malaysia, there are a lot of questions that would follow up but most importantly is to reach out to someone with experience.

Ideally would be someone who runs a coworking space in Malaysia, second best would be to just come in touch with a foreign business owner in Malaysia.

Is there a US bank for easily creating new business checking accounts remotely?

 

by @tylertringas | 2yr 1 year ago | 23 comments

Every accountant is going to tell you that you really should be keeping separate accounts for all your businesses and even projects that may one day become businesses. But in my experience setting up a new account associated with an actual business entity is a pretty annoying process involving an in-person visit to a bank branch, proof of residence in that branchโ€™s region, etc. Has anybody seen a bank that letโ€™s you easily create a simple business checking account online and more importantly that would let you add additional accounts and transfer funds between them?

Pacific islands with decent internet speed to work online


by @paxai | 2yr 1 year ago | 1 comment

Any digital nomads that have lived for an extended period of time on a pacific island? I am planning on moving with my girlfriend for a 6 month period to a pacific island, and planning to live of copywriting and some other online work.

Have been looking at islands like Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Cook Islands ++. Main problem is that many places seem to have expensive/bad internet speeds and access.

I dontยดt need superfast internet, but it has to be good enough for me to surf, send e-mails, download pictures, update webpages and so on. Either good internet cafes or the possibility to rent appartments with internet that doesnt suck or blow our budget.

Any recommendations for the perfect pacific island for working online?

Australians CAN spend more than 90 days in Schengen countries


in Australia by @uncompromise | 2yr 2 years ago | 4 comments

The Australian government apparently has bilateral agreements with a number of signatories to the Schengen Visa treaty that predate, and supersede, the standard 90/180 for traveling in the Schengen zone.

This Wikipedia article stipulates to the bilateral visa agreements:

According to this article, and some of the links Iโ€™ve followed to official documents, Australians are (potentially) permitted to travel within Schengen, and not have their stay in the following countries aggregate up to the 90/180, but be treated as separate periods, with the time permitted under the existing bilateral agreements.

Countries that appear to have bilateral agreements include:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Iceland
  • Italy
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands
  • Spain
  • Norway
  • Sweden

In theory, this would permit an Australian passport holder to move relatively unrestricted around the Schengen zone for an almost infinite period.

For example, if I am permitted to be in Germany for 90/180, external to the Schengen treaty, I could, in theory, spend 90 days here, exit to Austria on the train, spend another 90/180, exit to The Netherlands by train, spend another 90/180, and then return to Germany, where my 180 days would have reset.

If youโ€™re an Aussie, and have been traveling in Europe without any formal visa documentation, other than your passport, Iโ€™d love to hear from you. Iโ€™m attempting to plan out the balance of my time in Europe, and donโ€™t want to fall foul with any officials. Getting a black mark on my passport would be highly undesirable.

Thanks in advance for your support

Iโ€™ve been looking to travel for a few years now, and Iโ€™m finally at the point where Iโ€™m pretty much ready to get going, hopefully next month.

That said, Iโ€™ve not planned ahead well, and it only just occurred to me about vaccinations. Iโ€™ve done a bit of research and there are vaccinations available, but Iโ€™m unsure how necessary they are.

I plan to chat to my local nurse/doctor before going, but Iโ€™m also interested to hear whether most people do vaccinate at all before heading out or not?

In terms of specifics, Iโ€™m planning to fly to Japan and then move south, likely hitting up Thailand, Bali, Vietnam etc.

Not expecting any official health advice here, more just personal experience. Any thoughts appreciated :+1:
