When starting up like first year in business do you really need license or any type of certification because when i talk to people they say "Build a good client base before you register as a company because its expensive and all that kind of stuff. So is this true should i wait? Can you wait whats required?
Most suggest building or having an existing customer base before starting because of the operating costs involved in maintaining the business until your revenue is steady.
Unless you can afford the operating costs of the business until you build a decent size customer base (which could be weeks or even several months), it would be a good idea to start with something you can afford to support (such as a reseller account) just in case it takes you a while to start generating revenue.
