Can I be sole proprietory and be employed at the same time?

Planning of doing import using home-base but still remain as an employee(employed by company)

Because importing take time to generate leads and sales.
show the product on web and if they bite, then import the goods to them.

possible?

Yep, no problem. Even a PR can (I've been doing so for a number of years).

Yes, correct, no problem from the government point of view. But check your employment contract. Many companies prohibit secondary employment, reasoning that a) you might compete against them or b) that you already have full time employment that might be affected by a part time job.
