Hi all:

I am planning to start selling online, one thing troubling me is if I need to start a company or not ?
I have read through several post saying that opening a company can make your selling legal, but does individual seller count as illegal ? quite confused.

hope I can get different opinions, thx.

Welcome to SaleHoo Hong :)

I would not say it is illegal to start out without a registered company. If you are selling leisurely like a few items at a time but once you start selling rather serious with a consistent volume of sales then yes you should definitely register your business.

Hope this helps!
