A sole proprietor income will need to be declared on your personal income tax return (because you are trading in your personal name).

It is very important that you register for provisional tax. You need to register for provisional tax because you will be earning income as a sole proprietor.

We will be able to assist you with your tax side of affairs. Unfortunately, we do not provide accounting services. You can refer to our basic Overview of Balance Sheet & Income statement if you would like to attempt to keep your own accounting record. Alternatively, you will need to appoint a accountant, we can suggest Company Partners.
