: Register the business or not?

03-30-2017, 12:06 AM
Hi all,

I’ve been selling a few of my crafts and artworks online through eBay for the last 8 months. These platforms help me sell my products easily and grow fast without any problems. Now the requirement of the product is increasing. So, I’m planning to start an e-commerce website to sell the products.

Few of my friends are interested in joining so that we can start it as a small business. But a bit confused whether to register the business or not. Recently I read a blog (https://www.ontariobusinesscentral.ca/blog/should-you-register-your-online-hobby-shop/) which says about the benefits of registering the business. Has anyone tried registering recently? Please share your experience.

Thanks in advance.
