Can a minor start an online Business?

Yeah it's totally legal. There have been a ton of teenagers that have made a ton of money. I'm not sure how it works out afterward though what with parental guardianship and all. I say go for it but remember that if you are going to start a site you should also include a toll free number on your ads. People will be more likely to buy from you because: a) A toll free makes you look more professional and b) It encourages people to call to get info since they don't have to pay long distance charges. I recommend Tollfreenumber.ORG. They haven't let me down yet.

How to start online business?

The best routes to take are to research the process of starting a business as well as the industry you're interested in.

I recommend checking out the SBA, Entrepreneur, The Start Up Journal & Nolo. All 4 are great informational resources for the new/small business owner.

Yes. Get started now and make it legal later. When you start making serious money, you can hire experts to clean up your accounting and taxes very quickly.Keep meticulous records of everything. Every receipt and so on.You will need a way to accept money. Get a Paypal account opened for you by your parents linked to an bank account in your name.One problem is inability to sign anything while an unemancipated minor. I am sure there are workarounds to that by hiring appropriate people.I don't bother with business licenses for projects that are not full fledged businesses. If I did, well let's just say it would be incredibly expensive. No one in the government knows or cares about you when you are just trying to get started and not yet making money. I had to pay a $50 penalty once for not having a local business license.One exception, I had to get a state license to repair computers (yeah, bet you didn't know that is a requirement in California) and they came to my door to enforce that with copies of my Craigslist ads in their hands. I paid my $221 fee to get licensed and lived happily ever after.Note: I am signing this with my own name. It may be bad advice, but I follow it.

Can you Start a Business as a minor?

1- you would probably not be able to get licensed as a minor
2- you will probably NOT be allowed to run a business like that out of your house - zoning laws
you would really have to have some kind of actual storefront location, which would require an adult to sign a lease and cost $100's+ per month to rent, plus utilities, computer equipment, furniture, phone service (business phone numbers are a lot more expensive than home or cell phones)
3-you would probably need a adult cosigner to even open a business bank account, and it may be impossible or very expensive to get a merchant account, so you can accept credit cards
4- you probably have to take some kind of course to even be eligible to become a travel agent
5-you might have trouble getting anyone to take you seriously as a minor
6-it probably costs a good amount of money every month just to get access to the reservation software that travel agents use and unless you are licensed, you probably won't be allowed to use it at any costs
7-you'd be a lot better off waiting until you are old enough, then getting a job at a travel agency for a few years, so you learn the business and build up a clientele (customer list)

Yes a minor can start business in India. The only basic need of starting startup business  is Idea .What kind of business you want to start ,which product you want to sell etc. You also keep in mind that  you don't have a big amount of money starting a business . Today world is growing now a days person don't want to wast time because with the increase in technologies the amount of time is decreasing .working person don't have enough time for spending in traffic areas or for bargaining or etc. This was a main reason for the idea of online shopping. Person can shop online in search of any product . Searching online is very convenient to customers they feel comfortable and also remain for long time . Now you are stuck!how you can provide goods to customers. See have to search for eCommerce web design company in India for building you website online then again you think how you can pay them see these companies have bound condition their client they said ok we will provide you a website with good platform you have to give us money at the time of earning or amount of commission . You can search for Ankita Vyas' answer to How do start ecommerce business in india? for more option.

You'd need help from someone of legal age, because you can't sign a legally binding document.You wouls also want to form a legal company, like an LLC Limited Liabilty Corporation, for tax purposes, and to protect your personal assets, and those of you adult co-signers. If you don't, any income will count against your adult co-signer’s income, and if you get sued, their assets are up for grabs.You'd need a lawyer for that, but for a small startup, you could probably use one of the online legal sites for a standard “boiler plate” set of documents, which establish the terms of the company, and give you what you need to register your company with the state, and federal government, to obtain an EIN, Employer Identification Number, which is like a social security number for the company to file your taxes. If it takes off, you'll probably want to talk to a lawyer face to face to improve the documents….who knows, you may have a lawyer as a full time employee by then!!Probably thinking way too far ahead here, but Illinois isn't the best state to incorporate in, having stricter rules than some other states. I worked for a Fortune 100 company, and we were incorporated in Delaware, for those reasons, even though we had businesses in all 50 states, as well as internationally.My son started his own company as an LLC at age 22, and he did it by himself, with no help from mom or dad, (except money of course), so it can't be that hard.Anyway, best of luck, and congratulations on your ambition.

HOLA!!!Hey there 4teen looks like your are going to be successful entrepreneur when you be hitting 6teenYou know while starting a business isn’t easy, it will change your life for the better. You will learn to think on your feet, overcome tough challenges, be creative, manage finances, be diplomatic, and lead your team.Earning money with online jobs can be tricky. Despite their bad reputation getting hired for these jobs can be a great way for a 14 year old boy or girl to earn money. Some people label all online jobs as scams but this isn’t the case. Work at home jobs are nothing new and have been a great way to earn money for years. The key is to find real, honest jobs. These jobs will require work, just like any other job so don’t expect to earn money without working. If an online job claims you’ll earn a boat-load of money with little or no work, run away fast. That’s a sure sign of a scamConsider these insteadSell Stuff on eBayFreelancerOnline SurveysWebsite DesignVoices . comBoostapal Ambassador ProgramBoostapalYouTube channelComputer TutorMoving AssistantThese are few examples where you can try and learn from these and gain experiencesBut try focusing your education first then ask your parents to help you in your online venture… then listen to your heart what it says about and how to ….Hope things goes wellGraciasLaeeq Peeran
