This service includes the purchase of one sole proprietorship registration in Ontario and an option to purchase a NUANS report and/or an Federal Business Number Registration (HST number).
NAME SEARCH REPORT:
As part of this service we perform preliminary name searches first on all orders (for no extra cost) before we obtain a full search in order to eliminate a rejection of the name. A preliminary name search report is about 90% accurate. There is no guarantee that a name search report will be accepted by a government but we work to insure that it is.
Ontario does not require a NUANS report. You can decide to rely on the free preliminary name search performed or you can order a full NUANS report which will show all conflicts across Canada.
TIMING OF REGISTRATION
One to two days
FEDERAL BUSINESS NUMBER: A Federal Business Number will not be issued by Revenue Canada Agency unless the proprietorship needs an HST/GST account, Payroll account, Import/Export account, etc. If a sole proprietorship makes over $30,000 it will be required to obtain a GST/HST no. in most provinces or territories. See the section on the main site respecting Federal Business Number for more information. A sole proprietorship is not required to charge HST/GST unless it is making $30,000 and there will be no need to register until such time. Federal Business Numbers are issued to the person rather than to the sole proprietorship. If you are confused in any way please contact us (416-757-3351) in advance of ordering.
