Does the online store need business registration?
The global outbreak of COVID-19 has brought a lot of impacts to businesses large and small everywhere. In order to avoid the epidemic, everyone has stayed at home, avoided going out, and reduced the chance of contact with the outside world, thereby reducing the chance of infection, thus making the public turned to online shopping platforms to buy food, clothing and daily necessities online. Citizens who use major take-out platforms and online stores abound. Many merchants have continued to develop online businesses in order to maintain business operations and achieve good performance during the outbreak of the epidemic. There are also many citizens who are unemployed or reduced in income due to the epidemic or other reasons, and open online stores hoping to earn additional income.
It’s not difficult to open an online shop in today’s well-developed networks. There are multiple business platforms on the Internet and teaching videos for building online shops. It only takes some time. It’s not difficult to set up a network, but a successful website. , I believe it absolutely takes time to operate and manage, and we have a lot of experience and knowledge that can be shared later, such as online store UX/UI, EDM, product selection, target audience, etc., and today I want to share Is the business registration of the online shop.
Some netizens shared earlier that their 12-year-old daughter suddenly received a letter from the Inland Revenue Department to recover business registration fees for the past three years for trading accounts on the Carousell platform. Only a dozen cases were received, because netizens thought it was unreasonable and should not conduct business registration for the account. Some lawyers said that whether a citizen needs to apply for business registration depends on four factors, including whether the goal is to obtain profit, whether the behavior has the intention of operating a business, whether the behavior is continuous, and how long the behavior has lasted. If an experience similar to that of a netizen’s daughter occurs, if you do not agree with the tax bureau, you will need to provide evidence and explain.
Netizens once thought it was a scam because their daughter was young and the account had only sold less than ten transactions. However, after calling the tax bureau, the staff on the letter did exist, and they were invited to the tax bureau. For business registration, although netizens have already sent the relevant forms to the tax bureau, they will go to the tax bureau to deal with it when it is convenient for her. But if we want to avoid these things from happening, we all need to pay attention to the details in the process of opening an online business. If you want to know more, you can contact us, thank you
