 Whether you want to be self-employed/freelancer, partner up with a friend or found a company, it will be useful to have support.

I will also include a step-by-step procedure for you to follow and how I can help you further.

Business immigration

If you already have a business outside of Austria but life has brought you to this country, you might want to move it in some form with you. Especially because under Austrian law foreign companies whose management members (i.e. managing director, CEO) are residing in Austria, have to pay corporate tax here.

I can advise you on the most suitable form the immigration of your business can take. That could be a parent company, a branch or a subsidiary.

Pre-assessment of individual qualifications

As you might have heard, almost any business activity in Austria requires a business license. The majority of these licenses are free for anyone to obtain. The person does not have to prove any qualifications. Such are the licenses for marketing professionals, IT, photographers, graphic designers, etc. The list gets updated annually and in 2022 has over 300 activities in it.

Other activities, however, can only be exercised if the person possesses specific education and or/working experience in the field, or has successfully passed an exam held by the adequate authority in Austria. Such licenses are business consulting, electrician, commercial investment consultant, insurance broker, life coach, etc.

For people who have obtained most of their qualifications outside of Austria, it is very often necessary to undergo a process of assessment of the individual qualifications. That assessment is done by experts in the business license office and usually takes between 2 and 4 months.

Before even starting the process, I can examine your documents and advise on the probability of getting the license, but also help finding the suitable Austrian qualification course/education to make sure you will be able to get the license.

Terms and conditions

You probably think that Terms and Conditions are reserved for big companies and are an annoying thing to check so you can get to what you want. While most people don’t bother reading the Terms and Conditions of the businesses they work with, if a problem occurs, that is the first thing they think of.

Moreover, the Terms and conditions for your business not only serve as your protection as the business owner, but explain to your (potential) clients how YOU do business. Having them is especially crucial if you are doing B2C business. Not providing customers with the necessary information has negative consequences for you. And by negative, I mean EXPENSIVE consequences.

If you are only working B2B, having clear Terms and Conditions adds credibility to your operation and create the sense of stability and predictability for your business partners.

I am not a fan of overly complicated legal language and fancy-sounding contracts and Terms and Conditions. If you hire me to support you in creating yours, you will not only protect yourself and your business against claims, but additionally structure your operation.

Usually, creating Terms and Conditions takes between 3 and 5 working hours (for one language), depending on the complexity of your work. I can prepare the Terms and Conditions in both English and German language.

My standard rate of EUR 180,00 an hour applies here.

 

Business concept development

You will be able to identify the correct audience for your business, determine pricing, revenue streams, marketing strategy, all while keeping a firm grip on the expenses.

Not only I consult others on how to found and build their businesses, but I, myself, have founded 3 viable businesses already.

Get in touch, so we can find the best solution for your idea!
