    I know there is a forum on this site that deals with starting up a business, but they are not specfic to Ontario. Since I found this thread, I'm hoping that you can help me with the procedure involved. I have done lawn maintenace, fertilizing, planting etc. for the past few years, but would like to register the business now. I obviously have to register the business name, but is a business permit/license necessary? Does PST or GST have to be collected or remitted and if so on what purchases or sales or services. Just a few of the questions I have. Any and all help and guidence would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Since we're on the topic...

    I only had personal coverage on my truck but somehow my insurance company found out and they canceled my policy "for underwriting purposes". The cancellation won't effect me negatively, but I do need new insurance. My question is, will it be possible to get commercial auto coverage even though I'm only 17? Thanks guys.

    Hi,

    No permits or licenses unless you are appling fertilizers, I do recommend business insurance though. Only GST on services needs to be collected, and pst on and goods sold however I dont usually mess with the PST and just include the materials in the cost of the job.


    I am not sure however try this company:
    http://www.sinclaircockburn.com/group/contact/1.asp

    They do all the landscape insurance for landscape ontario so they know what they are talking about. How on earth did ur company find out though?

    Cheers

    I've been told that GST doesn't have to be collected or remitted, unless you are making less than 30,000, is this the case? Just starting small, so we don't expect too much just yet.
    So basically, it's register the business name look into insurance and we're good to go?

    Thanks again

    If you are making under 30,000 you dont need to collect however some people will look at it as unprofessional so beware!

    Cheers

    Looks like I might have to get a fourth guy on the maintenance crew. I had a customer buy a second house the thing has a lot of ground and picked up a couple of larger sites on top of what I had last year.
    Construction is booking up fast as well. Looks like a busy summer. I guess the economy is still rollin.
