I'm looking at starting a side hustle that provides solely software related services. Like web-hosting, app development, etc.
In the near future, I'm not looking for any sizable profit (or any for that matter), as it's more of a hobby than an actual business right now.
I'm primarily concerned about the legal* and financial aspect of claiming any of this income on income-tax. Do I need to make a business (ie Sole proprietorship), get a business number, etc? Or if I document any expenses/income appropriately can I just claim it as "Other sources of income" in the federal/provincial income tax forms?
What do I need to consider when starting a side hustle that's based off of software services and/or web hosting?
*Should this question be posted on the Law StackExchange?
