Pro­gram helps with sort­ing the le­gal­i­ties

The Weekend Post - - Business -

LE­GAL is­sues will be cast un­der the spot­light when the TNQ Tourism Small Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment pro­gram kicks off its 2017 cal­en­dar on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 28.

MacDon­nells Law will present in­for­ma­tion on get­ting the le­gal frame­work in place for small busi­nesses at a spe­cial work­shop event.

Tourism Trop­i­cal North Queens­land (TTNQ) chief ex­ec­u­tive Alex de Waal said many small busi­ness op­er­a­tors un­der­es­ti­mated the time it could take to sort out le­gal is­sues.

“The Small Busi­ness Le­gal­i­ties work­shop will give them an ad­van­tage as the at­ten­dees will learn about busi­ness struc­tures, ne­go­ti­at­ing con­tracts, the Pri­vacy Act, suc­ces­sion plan­ning, li­cens­ing, ten­ancy and credit man­age­ment,” he said.

The Writ­ing Fund­ing Bids work­shop will then be held on Fri­day, March 10.

Both work­shops are just $20 per per­son and can be both be booked on­line at ttnq.org.au.

“While fund­ing for a small busi­ness is of­ten top of mind for busi­ness own­ers, there are many dif­fer­ent sources where it can be ob­tained,” Mr de Waal said.

The TNQ Tourism Small Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Pro­gram is for TTNQ mem­ber and non-mem­ber busi­nesses that re­ceive a sig­nif­i­cant por­tion of rev­enue from tourism and have fewer than 20 full­time equiv­a­lent em­ploy­ees.
