I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
The way I see it; if the system doesn't respect you then you need not respect it. That being said, there are ways to do business as an individual fully legally even under the age of 18 in most countries (No government spares a child's income from taxation). My suggestion is to incorporate, or register another business entity like a proprietorship and use that for all transactions pertaining to the business.
Branding your business/services offered is a different issue & up to you how you choose to promote it.
Personally I have registered professorships or partnerships for each business I am involved in, even though a lot of my customers know me personally.
If you are earning up to $14,000 dollars yearly (which I am, as most of my earnings are reinvested) and are operating as an individual, you are required to pay 13.9%. You are also eligible for Child Rebates, which cuts off about $351.
Now that you mention the figures, its evident that less taxes are to be paid as an individual. Maybe you should operate as an individual now, and when the earnings are at a level where they are taxed at 33% as both individual and company you can reevaluate the situation.
Over the years, I had a few partnerships, but didn't do that well.
So now I prefer to work for a living and operate without a company - best option for me at the moment.

that was like a riddle from clash of the titans...but my answer is "Company"...just be sure to keep the financials separate. You will lose any "insulation" by co-mingling funds. Think, looks like a duck, acts like a duck, it's a duck. If you incorporate, but operate like an individual, then you're not protected...
I have been thinking of registering as a sole proprietorship probably soon, then just link my other sites to this company name as a "DBA" (Doing business as). But I have read this (For my country)

It sounds like just alot of red tape too me. Also the shares and bonds how would you sell those? Looks complicated.
I'm working with some writers. I'm planning to start my company when I'll get web development and SEO skills too.
