Own business: welding
In the field of construction business, there are several areas that are available even with a small amount of start-up investments, that is, those that can be attributed to small business. One of these areas is the provision of welding services, this can be done by an entrepreneur almost alone, having relatively small capacities. However, you need to understand that in this direction there are usually many other companies that specialize exclusively in welding, in general the level of competition is usually quite high, even in small cities there will be many other companies that are engaged only in welding or an even larger list of additional services, including complex construction work. In this regard, it makes sense to think about opening a company that deals not only with welding, but also with some other work, this will allow you to earn income from several sources at once.
A newcomer in this direction will generally have to concentrate on finding clients and earning a reputation for the first time, and this will be difficult, especially if there are several good companies that do their job well and have been in the market for several years. However, given the considerable demand for such services, work may suffice for everyone, because both ordinary people and large organizations turn to welders.
To get started, you must register as a business entity. Here you can become just an individual entrepreneur – if you plan a small amount of work and cooperation mainly with private individuals – or register your legal entity; The best option is a limited liability company, because here, as in the case of individual entrepreneurship, a simplified taxation system will be available, which involves transferring to the state’s benefit no more than 6% of income or 15% of operating profit. Moreover, the LLC is not liable with its own property, and the amount of the state duty is only 4 thousand rubles. True, the opening of a legal entity is advisable only in the case of cooperation with medium and large enterprises, as well as with considerable workloads. That is, already at this stage, it is worth deciding on the format of your activity, making a bet on individuals or enterprises. However, the process of registering a business entity is a simple stage, because after it is worth getting a membership in a self-regulatory organization. It is impossible to work without joining the SRO; by law, all firms that offer welding work must be supervised by a special organization. First you need to find a suitable SRO in general, usually these are self-regulatory building organizations that unite many companies involved in very different services. That is, to look for a fairly simple construction SRO, there are quite a lot of them today, even in small cities you can find a similar kind of company, but each of them always has its own entry conditions. A general requirement can be called the need to comply with all conditions that relate to the implementation of their work process, that is, a company that wants to get a membership in an SRO must have the appropriate equipment, as well as the staff, which includes specialists of the selected profile, with relevant experience and education. Currently, it is a self-regulatory organization that is responsible for the activities of construction organizations, therefore, checks them before issuing a work permit. However, each SRO itself determines the amount of contributions that incoming members must pay. In some SROs, a special insurance fund is also formed in which any incoming company pays a certain amount. It can be quite large, on the order of several hundred thousand rubles. There is also an entry fee, which is usually small. And some companies provide monthly contributions, although this is not in every SRO. In general, before concluding an agreement, it’s worth contacting several organizations to determine the most suitable one, here the entrepreneur has a huge number of opportunities, because SRO can be very helpful in the work, because through it you can sometimes find clients or just partners in business. In further development, everything will also be much simpler, because, working for several years at a well-known company, you can count on some help and simplification of the process of obtaining admission to new types of work.
But back to the welding work. To organize their activities, you need to find at least a small office that will act as a representative office of the company. Although some companies work simply by telephone or via the Internet, their masters immediately arrive at their place of work after resolving all issues.
