Running an online business
If you've set up a website for your business and you're selling things using the site, you still need to follow consumer laws.
When you’re selling on your own website you should include:
- the contact details for the business
- any extra costs — eg delivery
- secure online payment details
- your return policies
- how to complain
- the currency used to pay
- any restrictions that may apply
If you’re selling to make a profit, you’ll have to pay tax on your earnings and if you’re on a benefit you need to declare this income.
