    UIF registration if sole proprietor

    I have asked this question at the end of another thread, but let me rather start my own.

    I operate as a Sole Proprietor and have 3 employees. I am trying to register on-line, but have only two options: Domestic workers or as a business, in which case I have to supply business registration papers, which I obviously don't have. What do I register them under?

    Thanks from a not-so-new-retailer.

    Back in the day when I was a sole proprietor, I just used my ID number to fill in any "company registration number" fields, and my "company registration papers" was a copy of my ID book and a "this is to confirm details of sole proprietorship" letter on a business letterhead.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
