Can a New Zealander start a business in Australia?

Hi, I'm a Kiwi moving to Brisbane and was wondering if I can start my own small domestic cleaning business - or is there some rule forbidding it?

Thanks for any help

You'll find that similar rules to NZ apply - you can start your business so long as you aren't prevented to by bankruptcy laws etc. As a kiwi you'll effectively be treated as an aussie when it comes to starting a business. Check out this site for more info:
