  Coaching women entrepreneurs, week 5: I go to the'administratif

Not my favorite, but I'll have to deal with it! Yes, I may spend time rereading the documents to fill out several times and calling different organizations, but these are the joys of starting a business.

I study the different statuses

It is not easy to choose the ideal status. I start by asking myself if I want to be alone or suggest that a partner join me. Depending on my decision, I inquire on sites to list all the legal forms: Sole Proprietorship (EI), Sole Proprietorship with Limited Liability (EURL), Limited Liability Company (SARL), Limited Company (SA), etc. Then I note for each the advantages and disadvantages. Those flexibility will i have? What are my responsibilities going to be? What capital should I bring? What tax rate on profits? To best answer these questions, I try to project myself in the medium term by being POSITIVE about the success of my future activity! And I do not hesitate to use the tool developed by the BPI to assist me: .

I inquire about the registration

Whatever the status of my company (commercial company, civil partnership or sole proprietorship), I must register it in the Trade and Companies Register (€24.08 for a main registration). Two possibilities are available to me: filing a file with the registry of the Commercial Court linked to the registered office or online registration . All you have to do is download a form and provide the supporting documents. I just have to wait for a Kbis extract to justify the existence of my company! To be completed by publication of a notice of incorporation in a newspaper of legal notices. Practical and very complete, the site full of info.

I contact my bank and my insurer

Depending on the legal form of my company, nothing forces me . An individual entrepreneur does not necessarily need it as long as he does not exceed €10,000 in turnover recorded two years in a row. Nevertheless, a pro account makes it possible to separate commercial operations from those of my personal life. If I create a company, the opening is essential even before its registration, in order to place the social capital there. A minimum of supporting documents are then necessary: ​​identity document, address of a premises (if commercial), draft articles of association within the framework of a company. Sites like provide advice on the various obligations. At the same time, I call my insurer to take out professional liability insurance to cover me in case of bodily injury, material and immaterial.

I subscribe to subscriptions

If at the beginning of my activity I can overlook certain costs, I quickly find out about the different professional subscription formulas for my mobile and internet. As soon as my accountant gives me the GO, I call an operator. Depending on my activity, I can also subscribe to an electronic kiosk of the type to keep me informed throughout the year, without having to travel!
