Working remotely or running an online business has become more commonplace than ever since the pandemic left many of us stuck indoors for over a year. While the lockdowns are ending, many have discovered that they like the autonomy of working from home. If you are thinking of starting your own online business, here are a few things you should know.
- Business Formations – You need to decide if you are going to run your business as a sole proprietorship or as a corporation. Incorporating may be slightly more complicated, but many enjoy the tax benefits and the separation of personal and business assets.
- Contracts and Agreements – Whether you have employees, need to lease anything long-term, or just want to have a written agreement with your clients, contracts can provide an additional layer of protection for you and your new business.
- Intellectual Property – You are going to need to come up with a company name, a slogan, a logo, and things like these. If you are selling a product, you may need to have it patented in order to prevent copycats from stealing your idea or design. All of your intellectual property needs to be protected by filing the right paperwork.
