Since it has been founded the company can not do anything by himself, was recruited WEB developers and WEB designer willing to cooperate in contract-based.

The Application Guidelines, so go doing offshore development that target Japan, first that Japanese is fluent first condition. And was multiplied by the recruitment and write the necessary items, respectively.

Although had kit and the Japanese, is Na would willing to contact a lot, actually just Canadians had contacted me ....

Of course it is where you want to think it would be Canadian that can speak Japanese. But I willing to explain the variety of their own strengths and excellent skills in your email or cover letter, but I did not write anything about Japanese.

When naturally hear in reply "Do I can how much Japanese is?", Such as that gathered everyone "... Hmm, I wonder if do not know so much to tell you the truth. But by you will be able to if study!" Answer .... And because of obvious and is can not I 's not you do not know you ... so much me by you can be study, we would think Answer with as can not gracefully.

Japanese people who contacted me, of course, but is not can Japanese, for example, if asked that it not be at the other application guidelines, will answer honestly that "can not".

But I is better of people who say that it is not possible to not be like those who of this Japanese likes to be able to trust, maybe (yea maybe) If a person is that Canadians can be without But it might take when there is confidence.

This is I guess the difference of culture. It is possible to know the difference you have said this, then you thought that there also be useful to go live in Canada, you might come become necessary even understanding of this kind of culture in business.

Will the things that I'll keep the commission where you take When you have from the bank, but taken a variety of fee considerably in many places.

It is unavoidable because Well business. Still CIBC account I think relatively cheaper compared with other banks.

In fact, is not the first time I launched the company.

In July 2006, we established the term company in friend and two co-investments and joint management in Japan. Since the establishment friend gave me doing almost all, aware that his own company as of this Spiral Software is was small.

There are professional Both of them, and that let us do in a range without unreasonable each in position that office workers, it was so to speak, "Entrepreneurship as a sideline."

And operates the company more than two years, the temporary had decent up also benefit. I think that it has extended in the future if kit Good luck.

However, went amount of work also increases instead of profitable. From around entering the Nokia of their company work becomes out of hand, as a result resigned representative last December, it was decided to retire.

Profit is it is not something that I should go up. More than it was decided to do within a range that does not out of the impossible, even if much Once you profitable even overworked it defeated, I think it failed and I hear that. Because in that he get along in a reasonable range while having a professional, it is because I could not achieve their stated purpose.

So this time that it is possible to increase the well profit while protecting the 8-hour wrote in previous articles, we think Once dont Konase the work of Spiral Software.

In order to pay for various expenses you can write the company a check, because it requires a business account, and we have met in person in charge to take an appointment at the branch of CIBC in yesterday Kerrisdale.

I had immediately close to the CIBC branch also the house, I chose a branch of this Kerisuderu that is also open Saturday.

Kerrisdale branch to no crowded's a pretty and widely as to the waiting room also comfortable (wonder if because it was a Saturday?), I think I chose the good place. It is good to hear even in spatially.

CIBC Small Business Operating Account is, cheap and various commissions compared with those of other banks, I think is suitable as Small Business of the name. However, such as it may take a month fee is to use a bank card and online banking, if you perform frequent deposits and withdrawals at non-check to the account might be a better alternative account.

Since the details of the account opening is was written at the bank's website, the person in charge had been surprised when performed aligned to fill all, including application forms. I would be finished in about 5 minutes, thanks. Next week I met once again on Saturday, is so account is open at that time.

I hope I made the company, there are a lot of things to do from there

Bank opened for business account

Business account you will need to cut a check of company.

Was examined lightly, is "CIBC Business Operating Account" is yo unlikely cheap a variety of fee of CIBC. Since individuals have a PC Financial account of CIBC series It's something so convenient.

I branch tried to in the immediate vicinity of the house, and I think that is kana convenient place where you are free on the weekend as the salaryman entrepreneur, was to Kerrisdale branch close from the house have free Saturday also.

Establishment of Payroll account · CRA

In order to pay the salaries and remuneration, CRA (Canada Revenue Agency: IRS like a s) in you need to create a Payroll account. So-called income tax and pension, it is the account that manages the deduction of employment insurance. I do not do not examined in the near also Toka way of calculation of these deductions.

· Company Creating a website

Now, we ask them to create a design company website towards the WEB designer. Anyway homepage fact, I have already installed, but the ones that I made with myself for personal business, design does not publish because obviously crappy w.

• Creating a business card

This I made with Vista Print the time being of those also, but I'm going to make things After also was properly can Toka company logo.

Telephone preparation of line

I've thought You must have a fixed telephone line for the company, contact basically work is I believe than not much use because I think E-mail is the main.

So either dispense with mobile (cheap plan of Toka FIDO), is being considered or would spoofing mobile you are using now individuals speaking more. Now because already has two mobile for yourself and for work (Nokia), I do not want to have three.

I have a lot of things you have to do, we will proceed with hard little by little.
