Business Incorporation – Get The Business Plan Together

While it's not required as the legal portion of business incorporation, there's no doubt that the decision to incorporate is a sign that your company is headed in the right direction. With that in mind, you are going to need some documentation - a business plan and the rules by which your business will be governed, for a start.

The very first and most important step in this process is to resist the urge to become overwhelmed. It's easy to look at the entire project with regard to an issue such as business incorporation and come to the conclusion that it's going to be more than you can handle. If you take your time, take the process one step at a time, and take some advice from those who have already gone down this road, you should find that it's easier than you'd imagined.

As with any major project, the key is to take one task at a time. Organization will help you accomplish the business incorporation and the remainder of the necessary business plans.

Create a filing system to keep like papers together. The exact file folders you create is less important than your ability to retrieve what you need when you need it. If you can gather information without a frantic search, you've taken a huge step toward the successful business incorporation and you'll find that other business steps - including creating a business plan - will be much easier.

You should clearly identify what your business is. That may seem an insignificant point, but that clarity will help you when you start the business incorporation process. For example, if you're selling computers, working on computers and providing Internet access, you'll need to decide whether you have a single computer company or if you're actually running two or three separate and equal companies. You may want some advice before you make that decision. One point to consider is that incorporating each line of the business will protect that portion of the business from the liability of the other parts of the company. However, you also have to decide whether you are able to maintain a separate company for each line of the business or if the assets and financial records are too tightly interwoven.

If you have your information well organized and have clearly identified your existing business, you're well on your way toward creating a business plan. At this point, business incorporation should be a relatively easy process for your company.
