Register a new sole proprietorship in Alberta. Alberta online business name registration in 24 hours for only $39 + gov fees. A sole proprietorship is a business owned and operated by one individual. It is the simplest business structure. The sole proprietor is the sole owner of the business and all its assets and the business has no legal existence separate and apart from the owner. You can operate a sole proprietorship under your own name, or use a business name you've chosen; for example â€śSmith Tailoringâ€ť (as long as you don't add any of the legal designations of other forms of business, such as Ltd. or Inc.). A business name is often used for convenience in identification of the business, marketing purposes and the creation of goodwill in association with the business.
Setting up and administering a sole proprietorship is easier and less expensive compared to forming a corporation. In Alberta, if you operate your business as a sole proprietor under your own name (e.g. John Smith), without a business name (e.g. John Smith Contracting), you do not need to register with the Corporate Registry.
If you choose to operate under and register a business name it is less expensive to register than a corporation. Nor do you have to make annual filings when you run a sole proprietorship (in Alberta, you have to renew your sole proprietorship business registration every three years).
