Starting a business of your choice can be exciting as you finally get to do something you love and make all the big decisions. However, many entrepreneurs spend more time thinking about the product or service and less time managing cash flow which could have a detrimental effect on the business.

So, to ensure you cover all bases, Darren Bruce, CPA, Professional Corporation, has put together a beginner’s guide to starting a business. Through this guide, you will feel confident about launching your enterprise.

Getting Started

Create a business plan: You must set a solid foundation by planning strategies and forecasting how your business will survive in the short term.

Plan for contingencies: While every entrepreneur gets into business hoping to make money, there are many pitfalls. So always plan for the worst-case scenario.

Next Steps

Hire professionals: You should have an experienced lawyer and accountant ready to answer your queries. They should satisfy any doubts you may have.

Stay compliant: Ensure you don’t lose sight of GST/HST, payroll, personal, and corporate income taxes. It will help you stay in the good books of the Canada Revenue Agency.
