If there are wages reported in box 7 of your 1099-MISC then you are considered an independent contractor/self-employed by the IRS. You might not have opened a business, but by being an independent contractor you are in-fact the business. Your business name is your name and the business address is your address. 

Most small business owners accounting method is cash.
