When I got going I did a business name search to get the name I wanted and registered my business as a sole proprietorship with the province, which also gives me a business number and GST (Goods and Services Tax)number. I haven't had to collect GST from clients yet because I haven't reached the threshold where I would have to charge tax. That is something for sure to check on with an accountant.

I do all my own books and have my accountant that does the taxes each year.

Thats it. I do this for my full-time income, it's been supplimental for 7 years. If I was doing it full time I would probably have someone else do my books and invoices and have more interaction with my accountant.
