I'm starting a company which will be selling physical goods online. I want to bootstrap the company. So I have few queries:
1. I need to get my company registered and I need address proof for that. I stay in a rented apartment but I can't use it to register the company. I don't want to take an office space in the beginning. Taking a virtual office is a solution but they generally don't allow companies selling physical goods. This is the biggest hurdle for me now.
2. Is VAT and sales tax registration mandatory if I'm going to sell physical goods?
You need to incorporate a Company registered before the appropriate authority. You need a trade license with the registration of ST and Vat as you are dealing with tangible items over net. Consult a Company Lawyer in this matter.
