    Smile registering a business

    Good day i am looking for information on registering my beekeeping business. I live in Nova Scotia Canada , and i am registering the business Name with Joint stocks and after that the business itself.

    Sooo i am wondering if some of the seasoned beekeepers could shed some light on the subject of what steps i should take ? please : )

    is registering as a farm different , or something you do later as you make a profit, because our government wants a profit of at least 10,000. before they will give you a farm registration with plates for your vehicle ect..


    This would be very much appreciated

    Thank you very much

    no one is replying probably because the rules are so different for different places.The following is what I did in Florida.Yours will be different but this might give you a starting point.
    Register hives with the state
    Apply for local business license....about 30 dollars here
    Apply for state sales tax certificate/license
    That is it as far as start up is concerned.
    If you grow beyond your back yard a tax cpa/preparer is a good idea.

    Thanks ! I figured the Canadian beekeepers might respond to it, but oh well. I will do it one way or another. I have already registered before getting hives this past May, but i am building up a bunch of customers and a farm that wants to sell my honey as well. too bad i didn't have a bunch of honey to sell, i only got 125 lbs this year, which was more than i thought i would get , considering the were 4 frame nucs and 1 nuc wasn't doing well with the queen provided. i have split 4 times and they all seem good.

    Next year i have BIG plans and can't wait, I absolutely Love doing this and it has my eyes wide open to things i never would have noticed or cared about before, such as all the chemicals going into food production and fake honey and how important bees really are to the world and lots of other stuff.

    I mean, your talking about registering, are you formally setting up a company?
    I do not understand what your original question is?
