7. Registering Your Business

Deciding to Register

Before deciding to register your business, be clear about why you want or need to register, and be sure that you can manage a registered business effectively.

How to Register

Before registering, make sure you are ready and able to manage a formally registered business first.

  • Can you afford to hire an accountant and tax agent to prepare and submit your monthly tax return, and your annual tax?
  • Do you understand the requirements of registration, and what it means to pay tax?
  • Is your revenue over USD 5,000 per month?

  • Can you afford the registration cost?
  • Are you clear about who the business owners will be? Only you, or will you also have legal business partners?
  • Do you have strong financial controls in place?

Registering your business is a big decision. First decide if you are ready for business registration and formal business management, before taking this step.
