When the story that made the company, for your voice of support that I have luck well to the timing of this recession.

Spiral Software has captured the offshore development in Canada for Japanese companies as the main business. And, precisely because during recession, than the contractor destination was the weapon the brand names of large companies, I believe contractors destination footwork is commensurate with the lightly and more cost-effective is chosen.

However, it is a thought that the only I have, do not even know whether it is correct, unless it will not be able to take work not fare even if correctly well.

It was around this time today that were considered are not Ika working hard to think many now in that.

Although founded the company in this month, if you quit this time Nokia, it seems there is an entitlement to unemployment insurance benefits. However, this is a unconfirmed, but it seems it is the amount of the allowance has become a little less with the company.

Each month in order to receive the qualification to pay the insurance premiums of EI, but you must have worked more than 910 hours in the past year, this has Both me clear.

However, what one worry is the reason of when to quit. Because not get After quit from yourself so that you do not quit from his own, but also to become a neck, in the case of the dismissal of the like or there is a fault in myself do not go out unemployment benefits.

It ... or do I How To make make me stop me here well as unemployment benefits comes out. Consider variety. I wonder if good to have to consult to the agent.

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

In July 2006, we established the company shall be deemed to be replaced with a friend and two joint investment and joint management in Japan. Since the establishment friend gave me doing almost all, aware that their company as of this Spiral Software Although I was small.

There is a professional with two people, and that let us do in a range without unreasonable respectively position that office workers, it was so to speak, "entrepreneurship as a sideline."

And it operates the company more than two years, the temporary had decent up also benefit. I think it was growth in the future if I'm sure luck.

However, it went amount of work also increases instead of profitable. From around that entered the Nokia of their company work is made out of hand, as a result resigned representative in December last year, it was decided to retire.

Profit is it is not something that should I go up. More than you have decided to do in a range not out of the impossible, even if much if you are profitable or too work it is negative, it would fail and he that. Because in that he get by on a reasonable range while having a professional, it is because I could not achieve their stated purpose.

So this time to be able to increase the well profits while protecting the 8-hour wrote in previous article, and I think Once dont Konasemasu the work of the Spiral Software.

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

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

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

Since the details of the account opening is was written in the bank's home page, the person in charge had been surprised if you performed aligned to fill all, including application forms. And it has finished in about 5 minutes, thanks. Next week I met once again on Saturday, it is so account is opened at that time.

Virtual Office of the mail service, is actually a perfect service to the small business that may not rent office space is rented in the address and the mail box only month $ 25 approximately.

There, there was a blind spot here.

The other day, contact that mail has arrived from the BC Ministry of Finance addressed to the company it came. In, and to go it to the time up I want to pick up? When you hear that, reply with "9:00 to 5:00 Monday through Friday" it is ....

Oh, I the time is Thats not go to pick up because they worked .... (Though there is that likely to understand considering the usual way rather than a blind spot)

It should be in the place where you are free weekends with more studied over. It's a little troublesome to change the service from now because they've been registered in there the other company address.

Service to transfer the mail I want to (Correction: I would like us to transfer at + $ 20 / month). Now How can try. Well, I wonder if or to probably Nante mail hardly come, or ask a friend who lives in downtown, go get together occasionally with Nari to leave early.

Also itself is easy to make a company, we are later troublesome and still not a from examining various properly.

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

Bank opening of business account

Business account will be required to turn off the check of the company.

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

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

Establishment of the Payroll account · CRA

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

· Company Creating a home page

Now, we ask them to create a design of the company website for those of WEB designers. Anyway homepage fact, I have already set up, but the ones that I made with myself for personal business, design does not publish because obviously cheesy w.

Creating a business card

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

Telephone preparation of line

I've thought that either provide a fixed telephone line for the company, contact basically work and I believe than not used very often because I think E-mail is the main.

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

I have a lot to unless should not do, we will promote Good luck little by little.

Do everyone is using how the 24 hours of the day?

I have to always try and try to run the idea that 8-hour clock.

The 8-hour clock, use to work 8 hours out of 24 hours, using the 8 hours yourself (and family and friends, lovers, etc.) in time for, is the idea that use 8 hours remaining to sleep and relax. Also it is included in the 8-hour work commute time. Time of meals and food to their 8 hours, such as the shower I am included in the 8 hours of sleep and relax.

Weekend it will take 8 hours of work in their own time. It does not work unless there are compelling circumstances weekend.

This 8-hour, long time ago (round trip 2-3 hours and to overtime work was also to because commuting) How it has been unable to completely even if the effort, we come to now be able to somehow.

This time, even get started with founded his own business company, I wanted to let your best to defend the 8-hour clock. Since no longer so tied to time if get used to regular employees at Nokia around March, over there in seven hours, I think that the kana can allocation of 1 hour to the work of the Spiral Software.

Huh? The No only one hour not their job? You might think. But, I believe that "work is not intended to be at the time." I wanted to go Once though doing that you can do one hour. (However, this is only an ideal, it is that I want to aim to there)
