    The Entrepreneur's Development Company of Pakistan is the state-operated enterprise for entrepreneurs. The procedure to register your business is as follows, first select one option between self- or public secrectary registration. If you are "self" registered, the body will forward the package of documents, which have already received an acceptance letter, to Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan within 5 days. You need to attach all relevant copies that are listed below. Should any of these attachments be missing then type a short note requesting their inclusion inside the dossier cover page.

    A freelancer can register under any of the following sections as he is operating as a business. For example, 'sole proprietor', 'partnership firm', or as a limited liability company(LLC)' if he is making more than one type of revenue. One disadvantage to registering as an LLC is that it requires capitalizing state fee/taxes and annual fees whereas registering sole proprietorships and partnerships do not require this yet you still must organize your financials according to a proper fiscal year. The business entity choices are:. 1) Sole Proprietorship. 2) Partnership Firm. 3) Limited Liability Company (LLC). Each choice has different requirements for start up fees.

    It is better to go for a service provider. A service provider will help you in maintaining all your tax returns and other legal requirements for the business. On the other hand, if you want to register a freelance business yourself then it can be done easily by filing with RoL or online registration at EPiS portal. The International Organization of Trade Unions (OIT) defines freelancers as "individuals [who] have been engaged [as contracted workers] on an occasional or temporary basis". In Pakistan, Freelancers are registered under Establishment Registration Ordinance 1965. They need to obtain Approval from Provincial Government in order to establish their freelance businesses.

    Business registration is a one-time investment. Registering your self as self-employed makes you eligible for income tax savings, protection of copyrights, and reduced capital gains taxes on stock or business residuals. If you are running an organization that will hire employees, then registering the company is very important. New entrepreneurs are always excited to start their own businesses but they also tend to be intimidated by the process involved with starting up a new startup. There are several major elements critical in getting work space set up on time - office spaces need to be outfitted with furniture rental or purchase of desks, chairs, file cabinets and storage racks first before employees can even begin work onsite.

    The freelancer may register their business by appointing a self-employed person, who is not less than 21 years of age, to act as the 'manager' on the name of the company. The employee should also notify his or her employer that he or she has done so. After publication in Gazette Extraordinary, companies are required to file their annual returns within six months from this date. The Tax authorities conduct verification checks and release statements and statements of account where needed every year (a statement and statement of account will be issued for each financial year). Auditors can also audit these books after giving notice in writing before 1st September each year.

    So far, Pakistan recognizes freelancers as self-employed businessmen or women. They do not need to register their business under the Trade and Tax Department for some time now. However, if someone wants to register it, he/she will have to comply with these requirements: having a Permanent Account Number (PAN) and filing tax returns on a regular basis even when there is no income generated. Of course that some formalities would be necessary such as getting registered by the National Industrial Registry Services of Pakistan (NIRSP).
