Starting a business — become an entrepeneur
Starting a business involves planning, making key financial decisions, and completing a series of legal activities. Thus establishing your own company and become self-employed might take a long time.
There are multiple steps involved in the process of incorporating a business. Some of these steps are listed below, but all are best handled by an experienced business lawyer:
- Writing a business plan
- Funding the business
- Approval of the company name
- Choosing a business structure
- Protecting the personal assets (No matter what structure turns out to be best for a business, it’s essential to structure it in a way that limits the personal liability and protects the non-business assets)
- Register a business
- Establishing Ownership Responsibilities
- Creating Internal Bylaws
- Creating Vendor Contracts
- Navigating Tax Issues
