Owning your own business is right up there with apple pie and baseball as an American pastime.

Steps to starting your business right…

  • Prepare a business plan and determine your initial capital needs.
  • Identify your current resources, as well as sources of start-up capital and your borrowing capacity.
  • Review potential business structures in terms of tax advantages and portability in case you need to relocate.
  • Plan for financial management of your business by selecting accounting software that fits your projected budget and gaining the hardware necessary to run it.
  • Understand the key components of a Cash Flow Projection and develop one to cover each month of your business for the first year, at least.
  • Learn about the best billing and collection procedures to maximize your cash flow.
  • Research and gain an understanding of employment laws so that you are prepared to comply from the start.
  • Consider a home office for maximizing tax deductions.
  • Prepare and file for all local and state licenses and permits.
  • Gain a Federal Employer Identification Number and set up payroll services and payroll tax filing systems with your first employee.
