Hi teegee,

I started out as many others, trading as myself using a business name – whilst working full time. I ran into the same problems with bank accounts, and customer perception. Eventually bit the bullet 6 months later and setup a company and haven’t looked back.

Personally, If you want your side business to become your main business, than setup the company at the beginning (~$500 startup + ~$800/year).
If not, then go solo – just keep in mind your personal tax will be complex and you should get professional advice to maximise your expenses etc.

Good luck with it.
