Hi all,

I am looking at a contract opportunity (first time contractor)...

My question: do I have to charge GST if I have NOT registered myself as a sole-proprietorship?

ie, can I just charge my hourly rate and pay income tax on it at the end of the year?

All advice appreciated...I'm having trouble tracking down the "rules" about this stuff on government websites.
