A sole proprietorship is a form of business registration that is registered by one individual. To register a sole proprietorship, it must be done provincially. If you are conducting business in more than one province you will be required to register in each.
Requirements to Register a Sole Proprietorship
(1) A name search report or NUANS report is required in all provinces except Alberta and Ontario. You may wish to order a NUANS report for Ontario and Alberta to ensure your name is completely clear although we will do a preliminary name search which will rule out 90% of conflicts.
(2) If you believe your sales will go over $30,000 very quickly you should register for an HST number at the same time as you order your sole proprietorship registration.
