How to organize your business
Making money with your own business is the dream of many employees. Not everyone is given by virtue of nature, but with a strong desire you can try. With a proper degree of responsibility and accuracy, an open small business will not bring any serious losses.
The most burning and most important question – what, in fact, to do? Where to get the original idea that would bring a stable and, preferably, a solid income? And it would be good if the investment – zero!
Naturally, there is no definitive answer to such a question. On the other hand, there are recommendations and advice of “experienced” entrepreneurs, not listening to them is a mistake. For example, how to organize your business and where to start is described in detail here. But hardly anyone will tell you the idea, you will have to find it yourself, no matter how valuable the mentioned tips are for you.
In the article we will consider the steps that you can hardly do without. Therefore, it is desirable to know about them immediately and take into account at the very moment when the IDEA finally dawned on you.
It is necessary to open any business from the state registration. Illegal entrepreneurial activity (that is, work without a certificate of registration of the PI or LLC) will not lead to anything good. And on the part of the state there will be complaints, and contractors will look askance, and most importantly, such a business does not have any prospects for development. The registration procedure does not require any outstanding efforts from you. Visit the FTS website, carefully read the rules of state registration and prepare the necessary documents.
When you fill out an application for state registration you will find the first “pitfall”. It is necessary to fill in according to officially developed requirements, and this is not a simple matter. Therefore, if you do not have experience in such matters, it is better to use a free online service on the Internet, for example, regberry.ru. In this case, you will insure yourself against the refusal of registration.
At the registration stage, think about the tax system you will work with. It makes sense to start with one of the special tax regimes that are provided for small businesses. Calculate how much your type of activity will result in a “simplified”, “imputed” and patent, compare the numbers and make the most profitable decision.
Do not forget that in addition to taxes there are insurance premiums to the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation, the Social Insurance Fund and the MHIF. If taxes can be reduced to a minimum, then you will be required to pay contributions under any circumstances. For example, the IE in 2016 will pay contributions to a minimum of 23,153 rubles.
Carefully approach the issue of choosing a bank to open a current account. Consideration of tariffs, advice and study of feedback on the bank – a step necessary and prudent in all respects.
If you understand that you do not pull the whole “paper routine”, use the offers of accounting outsourcing firms. They will keep records and reports for you, and the responsibility for all mistakes made will be on them. It is more profitable than taking an accountant to the state at the start of a business.
