    Canadian Affiliate Noob + Company Registration
    Hi All,

    I am an absolute Noob in IM and Affiliate Marketing and as such, if my question has already been asked, please let me know the search term where I could find the answer on the forum. Much appreciated.

    As stated in the title, I am Canadian and operating out of Canada and was wondering whether it is needed / what are the advantages of registering a company for IM / Affiliate Marketing? I currently also work full time and in another job. Thanks in advance.

    You don't really need to register unless you are incorporating for legal/tax purposes.

    If you are making over $1000 extra a month you may want to take advantage of an LLC so you can write off expenses. If only a few $100 may not be worth it. Not sure how the networks/merchants handle it it Canada but in the states they send a 1099 IRS form to report revenue made.

    For now, I'd simply claim any extra income on your personal income tax. You can still deduct home business expenses. If your income is mainly from Canadian sources or you make over a certain amount from Canadian sources, revenue Canada may force you to get a GST number (and pay GST on your earnings). It sounds like you don't have to worry about this for a while.

    Best of luck!
