So You Want To Go Into Business
Each person who intends to go into business must decide on the legal
structure best suited to his or her needs. The legal structure of a commercial enterprise defines the legal relationships within the enterprise as well as its relationship to its environment. In choosing the best structure, you should consider your personality, the purpose of the enterprise, its size and tax, management and statutory requirements for the several types of commercial enterprises there are.

There are two basic structures to choose between:

A Company - a commercial enterprise registered or incorporated under the Companies Act.
(A company can be either be Non Profit (Charity, Club, NGO etc) or Profit Generating)
A Business - a sole trader or partnership registered under the
Business Names Act.

Overseas Company Registration
Not less than three documents are required for the Registration of an
Overseas Company:

Local Company Registration
(Either Non Profit and Profit Generating Companies)
Before registering a company, it is important to decide whether it is
necessary to avail oneself of corporate status or whether to seek registration under the Business Names Act, which is a much cheaper and simpler form of registration appropriate to small business enterprises.
