ONLINE SMALL BUSINESS WORKSHOP > Basic Regulations for Getting Started
Session 5 is
for individuals who are ready to start operation and want
instruction on the regulations that affect most small
business start ups in British Columbia. You might want
to start by deciding if you want to operate as a proprietor,
a partnership or a corporation.
You will want to know what taxes might affect
your business and if you are going to be employing people
in your business, then there are a number of regulations
that may affect you. Also included is a handy start
up checklist indicating regulations that will likely
affect your business.
This chapter discusses
the basic regulations that are common to most start
ups and does not encompass permits, licences or regulations
that may be specific to the industry or type of business
you plan to work in. For information on provincial regulations
specific to your business, you may find something by
for your type of business. If you have further questions,
there is plenty of help. You can contact your local
Government Agent, Canada/British Columbia Business Services Society or Victoria Connects.
