What sector is tentage contruction and erection business in?

Postby krazekor » Wed, 21 Dec 2011 8:30 am

Hello people, I really need help here so i would like to have the general opinion of the masses.

This business lies in the grey area of the classification. Unlike industries like F&B which are clear cut service sector.

Is it under construction or are we under service sector?

Probably events and promotions companies. Why not see how a couple of tentage companies are listed on ACRA?

It is a known grey area in the ACRA classifications. You need to look at what else your company does or does not do, and the skills of the staff you have.

A lot of tentage companies are service companies, but that will affect your labour cost when using foreign workers.

If you plan to be a construction company, do you meet all the requirement set out by BCA?

So you need to find a position which suits you best and stick to it.
