Congrats on being interested in registering a business/ having launched your business already! The reason you are asking this question may possibly include the fact that registering your business can cost you hundreds of dollars, especially when registered by an accountant.
In this day and age, the good old internet can help you accomplish everything you need. If you choose to register your business, I personally recommend simply because of the following benefits:
- The registration process is VERY clear and straight forward. It takes you less than 5 minutes to register, and then another 5 minutes for your business license to be emailed to you.
- You save over 1/2 what you would have paid had you went to an accountant to do the same thing.
- They have live chat ready to answer any pre-registration questions you may have.
- If you’re thinking of registering as a sole proprietor, you can do it basically for free. Use code JDBO-50 for $50 off the registration cost (for either sole or incorporated) and then complete the steps they present after registration to get the remaining amount refunded.
Ownr is owned by RBC Ventures; a reputable company that I recommend to all new business owners.
Important tip, make sure you keep all your business expense receipts stored safely as if you do decide to register your business, you’ll need proof of purchase when claiming expenses on your taxes.
