Jim Hi, Alice. How are you getting on?
Alice Fine, as usual, thanks, Jim. What about you?
Jim I'm O.K. It's nice to see you.
Alice You too. I'm glad you are not in a hurry and we
have time to talk today.
Alice Can you give me a piece of advice?
Jim Well, I'll try if I can.
Alice You know I've been always good at cooking. It
interests me. I am thinking of starting my own
business - cafe.
Jim It might be a good idea.
I guess I must learn about the responsibilities of going into business.
|Alice Jim Alise Jim Alise Jim Alise Jim|
Are you going into this business by yourself?
Exactly. I'd like to have a cafe with my name on it
where I make the decisions and where I control
You seem to be resolute so I'll try to help you. If
you go into business alone, it is called sole
proprietorship. In such case you needn't consult
a lawyer to form the business. You can start or
you can stop your business whenever you like.
It sounds encouraging. What else can you tell me?
There is no need to consult partners or a board of
directors. So you can put your policies into effect
quickly. You decide on your vocation, hours,
salary, hiring and firing.
Well, that's not bad.
Wait a moment. I believe I have to tell you about the risk involved.
What do you mean?
|Alice Jim Alise Jim Alise Jim Alise Jim Alise|
First of all, the most important risk is that you have unlimited liability. It means that you are responsible for all your business debts.
So if the business fails, I have to declare personal bankruptcy, don't I?
That's what I mean. You can lose your personal assets.
Well, it's rather disappointing. What other things should I know?
You won't get tax benefits which partnerships or corporations can get.
I know about it. By the way do you know of a good accountant to do my taxes?
Of course. You'll also have to hire a good bookkeeper if you can't do your books yourself.
I can't say anything definite about that. I have to think it over. What else, Jim?
Well, I am a bit hungry, why don't we have a snack together and discuss the things in the cafe.
You are right as usual. Let's go.
