How to register your business with Ownr
Registering your business with Ownr is easy and can be done in a snap. You don’t have to dive in headfirst, though! Ownr has a clear guide on how to complete a successful business registration. Here’s a brief rundown:
1. Choose a business structure.
Determine whether your business is a sole proprietorship or a corporation (or, less commonly, a partnership or a cooperative).
2. Look out for the next steps.
Depending on where you live, you may have other steps that need to be followed before your business can be registered (such as first registering a business name separately or asking the province for approval to use your business name). Ownr can help you determine whether or not extra steps are required by your jurisdiction.
3. Once you determine the business structure that’s right for you, sign up with Ownr.
Your fees include the business registration fee that is set out by your province, as well as unlimited name searches (usually name searches carry an additional charge). For sole proprietorships, registration costs $89 CAD plus applicable taxes. For corporations, the cost starts at $499 CAD plus applicable taxes and includes your minute book. Ownr customers also get access to exclusive Ownr Perks and support.
4. Save important business information.
Following registration, you will be provided with a business number, which you will then be able to use to open business accounts, take out business loans, and tap into wholesale prices!
