Business arrangement as an indepedent stylist:

Expert: Hank Bulmash

Nicole asked:

I am about to enter into a business arrangement at a hair salon, in which I rent a chair weekly as an independent stylist. Do I need a business number for tax purposes? Am I best to operate as a sole proprietorship?

Hank Bulmash answered:

In response to your first question you should register for a business number as well as for GST. In terms of your second question, you should operate as a sole proprietor.
