What to discover in a small town
Many residents of small towns think about where to start a business in their city. They are looking for ideas that can bring significant returns with a small investment.
In this article, we have collected for you the best business ideas for a small town with an average and minimum investment, as well as a number of useful tips.
First you need to register as an individual entrepreneur.
To do this, first of all, you will need to determine the types of activities that you will be engaged in, and indicate their codes according to the OKVED directory. If you indicate "extra" activities, that is, those that you are not actually engaged in (but, perhaps, are planning in the future), nothing terrible will happen.
But if you engage in activities without specifying the appropriate code, during subsequent verification you may be fined five thousand rubles for failure to provide information about the individual entrepreneur, in accordance with Article 14. 5 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation.
After that, you need to choose a taxation system. Which of them will be the most convenient and profitable depends on the business, but aspiring entrepreneurs, as a rule, choose the simplified taxation system (STS), which implies the possibility of paying taxes either from the income received or from profit (from income minus expenses).
You can understand which of the options will be more convenient by analyzing your business: it is more profitable for service companies to pay taxes on income, and, for example, for trade enterprises - on profits.
Having decided on these issues, you need to prepare the necessary documents:
- application for state registration;
- passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation (or a copy certified by a notary);
- a copy of the TIN certificate (if you do not have a TIN, the number will be assigned to you during registration);
- notification of the application of the selected taxation system;
- a receipt for payment of the state duty (800 rubles, you can pay at any branch of Sberbank).
Then you need to take all these documents to the Federal Tax Service or the MFC and after three days receive ready-made documents on IP registration:
- certificate of state registration of IP;
- certificate of staging registered with the Federal Tax Service;
- extract from USRIP.
Later, a notification of registration with the Pension Fund will also be sent to the address indicated during registration (a request to the Pension Fund will be sent to the FTS during the registration process).
If the document does not come, you will need to contact the FIU with a certificate of registration of individual entrepreneur, TIN, passport and pension certificate.
