WHV and ABN

Hallo, I'm in Australia on a working holiday visa (I'm from a EU country). I have been here for one month, and have an apartment in Sydney for the next 10 months.

I have been offered a contract for the next 9 months (to do consulting work) for a company, and I would therefore like (/need) to have an ABN number, which I don't think should be a problem, even though I'm on a WHV (?).

What I'm worried about is the WHV and the ABN, since I, as a working holiday visa holder, am not able to work for the same employer for 6 months. But what if I have my own business (as a individual ABN (solo trader)), would I then be able to?

I hope there are someone in here, who has some experience with this...

Thank you,
Salte

No experience with it but if you have a look at the detail under obligations, it seems you're attempting to stretch the conditions.
