While the majority of French people now make their purchases on the Internet, you might be tempted to enter the business world yourself. Whether you want to offer your own repair services or sell your own high-tech products, without prior knowledge in this field, the micro-business can be an optimal solution. Indeed, this status has many advantages that can lighten the obligations of new entrepreneurs and promote the success of their new business. Being a 2021 micro-entrepreneur could therefore be an interesting option to launch your business without taking considerable risks.
All (or almost all) about starting a microenterpriseThemicroenterprise is a special status that aims to lighten the obligations of new entrepreneurs, under certain conditions.
This simplification relates in particular to the administrative formalities of creation and the tax declarations linked to this activity. To get started, all you have to do is make an online declaration and fill in a dedicated form, whether it is a commercial and craft activity or a liberal profession. You will also have to register your activity in the trade register and, of course, keep up-to-date accounts. To do this, you do not need to use an accountant, but it is better to use a dedicated software program. You should also know that you are obliged to open a bank account dedicated to this new activity.
Prefer an activity for which you can produce/buy as you go along: you will thus avoid excessive creation and launch costs and limit stocks, which is necessary if you do not have a dedicated room for storing products. Don't skimp on advertising and market research to ensure the success of your project. Focus on a product that will meet a real success, by carrying out targeted research on the net or by consulting social networks. Social networks will also be a good way to advertise for free and on a large scale, as long as you are present on the web and regularly feed your pages.
Launching a micro-business: is it a good idea?The creation of this type of business is completely free, concerning service activities, commercial, liberal and craft activities.
Its management is mainly done online, from the creation to the declaration of income or the payment of charges, which facilitates its management and saves considerable time for micro entrepreneurs. Anyone can start up a microentrepreneurial business, whether they are a student, retired or unemployed. Employees who are not civil servants can also start up a business, provided that their employment contract does not prohibit the combination of activities. The microenterprise thus presents significant advantages, particularly for e-commerce novices who wish to start their own business and to carry out their projects without too many constraints. This bet could turn out to be a winning one, provided that you follow to the letter the few obligations inherent to this status and make sure you are well informed beforehand.
