Yea i got some personal baggage from my young an dumb days that im still currently dealing with.
Crazy how a bad choice can affect 10 years of your life. But getting the truck is almost as exciting an buying my first home cause its all comming to an end. But atleast i got a good amount of time to rack it out an oil coat it

That's completely nuts. 50$ for 10 years for the registered name I suppose? No wonder on kijiji there's 250 pages of hackers posting plumbing ads and the going rate is 60$/hr and some at 25$ who can fix anything with duct take.

It's a conman's heaven if it's like that.

In the city here you have to submit an aplication, meet the requirements like having a plumbing license among others. Pay like $245 then an annual fee of 185 or somthing like that.
If your not a licensed plumber you cant operate a legit plumbing company. Ontario in general has some of the stiffest requierments...which is a good thing. A contractor license isnt somthing id be going for. I do plumbing not tile drywall rough framing. Kijiji people can duct tape all the drywall they want.
If they want to do plumbing thats great too, ill fix it eventually.
Not sure what the $50 for 10 years is about.

Plumbing licence, you mean getting your journeyman certificate? So if I understand you have your journeyman and all you need is the 245$ to be able to call yourself a contractor /company?

If it's all there is then it's a breeze to be able to operate a plumbing biz.

The 50$/10 years I was referring to is the business name.

Ah, didnt know what the fee for buiss name was. Well 50 is dirt cheap...
But yea it would seem like a breeze if you havent broken the law befour an got caught...like i said personal baggage from years ago. Theres more than what meets the eye. But yes my goal is to work for myself eventually. Kind of a scary leap of faith when i think about it.
But iv done alot of things i never thought id be able to do so my own worst enemy is my head lol

It’s a scary thing to do. Takes a couple weeks to get your name out. If its like here, advertise and you’ll get a lot of people right away just to see what your like.

To operate in Illinois, first you have to have a plumbing license (4 year apprenticeship and a test), then you have to secure an Illinois Plumbing Contractors License. You are proving to the State you have insurance and are required to bond with the State. Then you are legit for the most part.

Some towns (like my jurisdiction) require a business to be "registered", providing they have the required State License. No fee just to show you are doing business in the community. This helps the municipality to collect its portion of sales tax that gets generated.

A few towns still require a bond directly to them in case you damage a street.
