This website is all about providing you with information on how to start your own business in South Africa. Our newsletter will focus on starting a certain type of small business, but you will find other traditional information on this site too. Whether its tackling Government red tape or figuring out how to setup a company, the information is all here. We hope you enjoy your browsing.

The subject of managing your own small business or company is vast. We can’t hope to cover the entire field, nor could you hope to absorb all that information in a short time. Instead our intent is to focus on modern and cheap ways of running your business with minimum personal risk. The strategy is almost always to rather start small and test it out before moving onto bigger things. This does not suit everyone, but we believe it to be prudent for most.


The subject matter dealt with on this site is of a general nature only. It is always advisable to consult a professional for your specific situation. All information provided on this site has been carefully chosen and is to the best of our knowledge correct and current.
