    Hello,

    I was wondering, I have a website running for several years. The website design gives a feeling that there's a whole company behind it, which isn't. It's just a one-man-show who makes some bucks here and there, but not that much that i would need to pay taxes on it. Do i still need to register it (it's hosted in the US and I'm from Europe) or is it so insignificant that I shouldn't worry about it?

    thanks

    Only you can decide if its worth it. Clearly if you make lets say $300 a year and the setting up of the company costs you $200 and then the accountant costs you $100 then it might not be worth your time.

    I don't know about european laws in general but in germany you'd have to register it. Where exactly are you from?

    In Germany everything is very strict and complicated. I also believe that in Germany it's better to register. The rest of Europe looks much more friendly.
