It's official. I have incorporated the business. There's something strangely satisfying about having done so. I felt the same giddyness when I registered for tax numbers (so that one can collect taxes on behalf of the government, something I take no joy in). But this feels better. I own a corporation.
Having gone freelance back in January, I probably should have done it sooner but felt that running as a sole proprietor would be enough. But now I can set up a business account and really try to keep business expenses separate from personal expenses. It's just going to make life easier come tax time.
The official company name? Snook.ca Web Development Inc.
