Preparing a Solid Business Plan
Getting into business begins with expenses: an office, a vehicle, equipment, suppliers, entertainment, etc.
For most entrepreneurs, this requires having money!
Why wait years to build capital when we may be able to help you right away? There is nothing better than a solid business plan to convince us of your project's worth. A good business plan shows your lender or investor that you are serious.
If you need technical or financial assistance writing and implementing your business plan, contact your local development centre.
Anyone who becomes self-employed must make their status official with Revenu Québec, i.e., by registering themselves.
To find out how to do so, visit their Website.
