In the meantime, please read through the following critical information about the importance of being a sole proprietor when working as an independent contractor with Anyday Maids Referral Agency.
When providing services as a referral Service Provider through Anyday Maids Referral Agency, you do so as an independent contractor. Furthermore, you are acting as a business entity — usually a "sole proprietor."
What’s a sole proprietor?
A sole proprietor is an individual in the U.S. who runs his/her own business and is self-employed. As a sole proprietor, you are responsible for the payment of any income taxes (and employment taxes, if you have employees) due on the money you earn from your Clients via Anyday Maids Referral Agency.
How do I set up my business as a sole proprietor?
For most states, including California, there aren’t any specific steps required to set up as a sole proprietor. Generally speaking, if you are doing business as an independent contractor, and have not registered your business otherwise, then you are a sole proprietor. Please check the requirements of your particular region for specifics. In California, we see that most independent contractors are getting their own business license to further establish their status as an independent business. Depending on the types of services your business provides, you may need to register for business licenses, permits, or zoning, as appropriate. This site provides guidance on these requirements by local region. Additional guidance regarding the requirements of operating as a sole proprietor can be found at this location.
What’s a business entity?
Alternatively, you may be operating as another form of business entity such as a partnership, limited liability partnership, limited liability company, or corporation when providing services to your Clients through Anyday Maids Referral Agency. Different filing and registration rules may apply to those entities.
What does it mean to be a sole proprietor or other business entity?
