Alright, so I'm starting a local "Marketing/Web design" company in my local Canadian city, and I was wondering if any of you have any insights on the legal requirements of doing so. Specific examples: Do I need to charge taxes? What permits would I most likely require? (Other than registering company name) All in all, I'm curious as to what many of you business owners have done when starting-up. Considering a lot of it will be online-based, what do I actually need? I have some friends that say "It's online, there are no rules", which I feel is a little misguided. Any insight would be appreciated!
