Can I register public mobile account under my retail business?

I am using public mobile since the last October and very satisfied with the service.

(It is cheap and reliable service)

 

I am going to open a new store on May 1st. I want to use this for my business If it is possible.

 

Can I register a Public mobile account with my incorporated retail business?

@cafri1984 Yes if you put your PM number for your contact info for business or business credit card, or anything related to your business. Then, just print a yearly statement and give to your accountant to do taxes.

@cafri1984 I don't know. Contact a moderator and ask them. Click on the green questionmark in the white circle at the bottom right of your screen.  This connects to the autobot Simon. Type moderator and follow the prompts to get to one (CLICK on account specific question and human and submit a ticket)

Keep an eye on the envelope top right of your screen.  The mods answer will show up there. 

You can also enable email notification to receive a private message notification in your email INBOX.

Please tell us what the answer was. Thanks.

@cafri1984  Public is a prepaid service you can do whatever you wish.

@gblackma FYI: none of the data in an account must be "real". The only requirement for service is paying for the service. If a credit card is not used, not even the address must be real.

The only real item to open an account is the "Alternate Number", which must be any actual Canadian number (I believe).

While I don't know FOR SURE, I suspect the OP is talking about changing the account from having his/her personal name on the account, to it being under the name of the business in question..... come to think about it, you CAN go into your self-serve account and change the name on the account, while leaving all other info as-is, such that when getting a printout for tax purposes, the account WOULD then have the business name on it.....

Thanks @Luddite  for clearing that up. I didn't know if you could register a corporation as an account holder with PM.

Don’t forget a USA credit card and address is acceptable, so likely an alternate USA number is too. 

 

The OP needs to also research the billing “invoice” so the cost can be written off as a business expense.

@LurganIeUk FYI: Alternate number must be Canadian. In theory, it's the backup number to reach the account holder.

But I had confirmed with Tanya??? and she confirmed there was a conflict here with allowing an American to set up an account. There is two places on the site and one includes that they can and the other does not mention. She confirmed that Americans can sign up with a USA address and a USA credit card....so obviously would it not make sense they would use there American number for an alternative number? I doubt if Public Mobile would ever phone you ....but used more for proof of identity.
