Business Registration

Congratulations! you are about to start your own business. You will need to determine what business structure or organization best fits your needs. The structure of your business will depend whether you want to run your business yourself, with a partner or an associate.

Sole Proprietorship

As a sole proprietorship, you are fully responsible for all debts and obligations related to your business and all profits would be yours alone to keep. As a sole owner of the business, a creditor can make a claim against your personal or business assets to pay off any debt.

General Partnership
