    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!

    I'm thinking of going as a Sole Proprietorship, but I don't want to get screwed over by the unknown. Mind you, the unknown can screw you anyway!

    Damn it guys, what do you think!?

    A Sole Proprietorship is the easiest way. This might help you get started:
