If self-employed, can I give my business a name?
I was reading the article by gices about how to register as self-employed, but I have a few questions here:
Can I give my business a name, if I am self-employed? e.g. Pattiserie Marie or do I need to register a company name?
What will happen, if I register as self-employed, then my turnover is over Rs2M, can I change to a company easily?
Am I allowed to start advertising on facebook to see if there is any interest in my cakes (but take no money) before registering as self employed?
Merci beaucoup! :)
If you are self employed, it means you trade under your name as stated on your birth certificate. Pattiserie Marie would be a company name in which case you can set up a one man company.
Sure you can.
Yep. As long as there are no financial gains, you can do that.
Thank you gices!
I've noticed that you can make a search for "Businesses other than Companies/Partnerships" on the link below, these are not Ltd companies, but more like small local shops with a Business Name.
So I'm confused, did they all register a company name?
