This MAY be a dumb question ...I work in a bakery but I like to make gumpaste figures and things like that at home. Do you need to be licensed to sell cake toppers (from home) on sites like Etsy? If I had to I could make them at work on my own time, but I'm just wondering...you know, in case I was too lazy to walk to work or something, lol
I don't know if you have to have a business license, but you do have to declare the income at tax time. I have an etsy shop and I can tell you that it's not a huge moneymaker, it's something to do on the side. I sell enough to be happy with it, but I'm not quitting my day job!
Yeah, that's kind of what I figured! I guess as long as make enough to cover what it costs me (plus taxes lol ) I'm happy! I don't get to be very creative at work, so it would be a good outlet for me...
Thanks for the input
I'm pretty sure that if you are selling a food item, that you have to be licensed. I know that Ebay does not even allow food items to be sold. Well, you see them on there but it is against Ebay policy. You should check the rules for the Etsy.
