It takes a huge leap of faith to open up your own business. The confidence to make the move and then to back yourself. The first year in business has some practical challenges in setting up, from registering to ongoing compliance IRD/Payroll/GST – cashflow management, getting clients and employing staff. All of which could be seen as the trials and tribulations! So come join us for a conversation around the ‘first year in business’, with guest speakers offering advice, insights and learnings from their own journey.
Local accontant Ruth Sio-Lokam will chat about making the leap of faith from working in a long established accounting practice for 14 years to breaking off into opening her own business. Ruth will also be offering a Q&A session around accouting and the practical challenges of opening up a business. So make sure you bring your burning questions!
