My question is on the administrative issue. I know that i would need to register the company in order to start legally, but I am not able to do so as i do not have the capital amount (as stated in `setting up your business` forum by Trip Hop) in my bank account. I have asked around, and some people suggested that I try out the business and after 3 months, if its succesful, then only register it. Is this OK?
This English school would be managed by myself and my partner. I dont know if this has any relation, but both my partner and I work as ALT (Junior high school) for a subcontracting company, hence both of us are independent proprieters. Should that make as a legal business entity and would not require any registration??
Any one with any ideas?
