5 New Rules for Direct Selling Success

It used to be that choosing how you wanted to sell your products using a direct selling method was a fairly simple proposition. Direct sellers employed two basic selling approaches: one-on-one and one-to-many (usually referred to as “party plan”). Not so today. Price and whether the product is consumable or non-consumable are still important considerations, but the direct selling marketing options and distribution channels have changed dramatically. Here are 5 ‘New Rules’ (guidelines really) to assist all direct sellers supplying product in the early 21st century.   Source: Alan Luce, World of Direct Selling Direct selling rules

ABN Guidelines for Direct Selling Businesses

Direct Selling Australia has published a handy summary of the impact of the new withholding tax exemption. The main point to note is that from 1 July 2018, the withholding variation for DSA members, making payments to distributors who do not quote an ABN, will be increased from $10,000 to $15,000. DSA members will not need to withhold tax from payments made to distributors below this amount. In FY19 and FY20,Independent Sales Persons (ISPs) who earn less than $15,000 from a DSA member, will not need to quote an ABN as they will be covered by the DSA’s exemption.   Source: DSA ABN
