The Canadian Business Set-Up Blueprint

Learn how to start a business in Canada

Struggling to figure out all the ‘official’ stuff you need for your new biz?

At first it’s so exciting!! You made that logo, created your social accounts, and got your website up! “Opening” your own business has always been your dream, and now the reality is here!

Your first few clients LOVE your work, and even refer you to their friends.

But then the doubts start to creep in....

Don’t I need to register my business somehow, make it official? Even if it’s only me working?

What about GST - do I need to worry about that? Someone said something about needing to make 30K but...

Receipts - they’re everywhere! How do I organize it all?

Can’t I write some stuff off? (And what does that even MEAN, anyway?)

I just don’t know where to begin!

And that’s when the late night google sessions start, you’re scouring the web trying to piece it all together, hours and hours of research and you’re STILL not sure exactly what to do.

And the Canadian Government website? Just. Not. Helpful.

What if you knew EXACTLY how to set up all the ‘official’ stuff for your new biz?

What if there was a ‘blueprint’ you could follow, that would SIMPLIFY everything, and just give you the information you need as a solopreneur working in Canada.

Things like:

  • How and when to register your business
  • What kind of bank account to set up
  • When and Why to register for the GST
  • Expenses - what you can write off, and what you can’t!
  • How to charge tax and what to do with it if you do
  • Simple bookkeeping methods to keep you on track
  • And all CANADIAN information, with specific instructions for each province?

Our courses are built using a modular approach: you choose which module you want to take first, based on your needs.

We don’t give you theories and philosophies about starting a new business, we give you tools that will help you get YOUR business properly set up and organized.
