Legal Issues and Law in Everyday Life: How do I legally start a business being disabled with Multiple sclerosis and about to be on disability?

Answer

As far as I know in Australia, a disabled person can start a business similarly to any able-bodied person. Unless the disability affects someone's mental and reasoning capacity, s/he is free to register  business name, Australian business number, register with the tax office for GST,  etc... And operate a business. 

Please note I'm not a lawyer nor an accountant. I just studied business and commercial law years ago so I don't know if there's been any changes. Although i haven't come across legal obstacles relating to a person with disability legally starting a business.

Do you have a different answer that might help the questioner? How would you answer this question?
