Starting a new business
1. Getting incorporated
For various reasons, you may decide not to operate your new business as a sole proprietor but to get incorporated. This might be a wise decision for many reasons, for example, for tax purposes. As a corporate officer, you will have to file quarterly returns and corporate taxes each year that are separate from your personal tax returns.
