**1. Business Registration
Regardless of the type of business, registration is mandatory. "Where there's income, there's tax" - this adage holds true even for tutors, study rooms, and private teachers. All are deemed as business income earners and hence, need to register their businesses. In these fields, you need to report to the education office before registering your business at the tax office.
You can register a "VAT Exempted Business(면세사업자)" if it's for tutoring for kids.
**2. Reporting to the Education Office
For tutoring centers, individuals intending to establish and operate must submit the following documents to the education office(교육구청):
- Tutoring center(교습소) establishment and operation report
- Documents certifying the qualifications of the tutor
- Copy of a Korean ID issued by a public institution that can verify the tutor's identity
- Floor plan of the tutoring center facilities

For private tutors or study rooms, individuals intending to provide private tutoring must fill out a private tutor report form detailing personal information, tutoring subjects, tuition fees, tutoring location, and more.

Before receiving the license certificate (tutoring center report certificate), you must pay the license tax. Failure to do so may result in cancellation or suspension of the license.
**4. Penalties for Violation
Operating a tutoring center or providing private tutoring without reporting to the jurisdictional education support office can result in imprisonment for up to one year or a fine not exceeding 10 million won.
**5. Business Registration with the National Tax Service
