Program helps with sorting the legalities
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.
