MBA1360 Q&A Wednesday: Do I need to have a registered business as a solopreneur?

Where’s the line between you and your business?

Legally speaking, it’s a question worth asking. It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’re helping one listener decide when it’s time to register a business as a separate entity from themselves. A solopreneur is still running a business, after all — even if it’s a one-person show.

Of course, there are advantages and disadvantages to both sole proprietorship and registering a completely separate business.

While the rules can vary from nation to nation, most of the Western world has a pretty clear set of standards that can help you make the best decision. We’ll share what we know from experience, as well as point you in the direction of who exactly you should ask. 

Listen in, and hear why not registering as a business can make it difficult to measure your success. Learn about the effects of registering on everything from your taxes to your personal credit. Get the facts, and make an informed choice. Click Play!
