I was referring to the 8 year requirement [insitu before being altered]
to have a pty ltd or Australian BRN first - not the price difference in

And Stil - I gotta say - I once started a business with a jar full of 2

The business turned out to be successful for two and half years after
which I went into the video and computer business......
