    Hey everyone,
    So I am starting up an online company and am wondering whether I need to get a business license. The legislation in my municipality says "(Anyone) who conducts business within the city must obtain a business license". I have a business address, but technically I'm not doing work in any physical location. Does anyone else here have an online business? If so, what did you do in this situation?

    If it helps, I live in Canada.
    Thanks!

    Welcome to our business forum Aaron.

    Would you be able to contact your municipality offices directly and ask them if you need a licence, given your own specific circumstances?
