      Starting up an Online Business - Is Company Registration Required to Start Dropshipping?

      Hello,

      I am in need of some advice. I am starting up an online business, selling items via dropshippers. I have a website and domain. But I don't understand if I need to register as a company. I have read that if I am a sole trader I don't need to register as a company, I don't have employees, is this correct? I also don't understand how the vat and tax work!

      Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated!
