    Qualified to do electrical contracting?

    Hi, I have a national diploma in electrical eng and have recently acquired my trade test. Is it possible for me to open a company as an electrical contractor, and do I need to register that business ?
    Thank you

    To make a mistake is human, to learn from that mistake is knowledge and knowledge is strength.

    you need sans 10142 (wiremans liscence) as well.
    register with DOL as electrical contractor.
    as a sole proprietor you dont need to register the business itself.just open a business banking account under your name,trading as "vusie electrical"
    register with workmans compensation.
    register with uif if you have staff.
    register with sars as a provisional tax payer
    never look back
