Answers that give you security
Creating a business plan
The idea is where it all starts – followed immediately by the business plan. As a written concept for the business, the business plan reflects the result of addressing the various aspects of running a business, from planning through to realization. A business plan not only provides orientation, it also serves to provide investors with key data.
Calculating your capital requirements
“No money, no music.” Remaining solvent is one of the top priorities for any business. Calculating the capital requirements is an important task of young entrepreneurs, particularly in the formation phase. The long-term and short-term capital requirements need to be planned carefully.
Financing and assistance
Without the right financing package, even the best idea will fail to come to fruition. Careful thought should therefore be given to selecting the right form of financing. The potential to attract equity finance, debt capital or a mix of the two, and also any avenues to obtain assistance, need to be identified and planned in each individual case.
Selecting the legal form
Finding the right legal form often turns out to be the key question. The task here is to weigh up such matters as liability, powers of representation and tax to find the optimal mix for your own needs.
The authorities are here!
Your idea is up and running! But before you get going, a number of formalities and visits to public authorities are needed: you must register your business and file it with the tax office.
Taxes & levies
VAT, provisional income tax payments, license fees, wage tax, municipal tax, income tax, and many, many more. In a complex tax system there are numerous traps lying in wait to snare you. The good news is that your tax advisor is happy to perform these formalities for you – allowing you to concentrate on your business idea.
