Own business: assistance agency for obtaining a license for medical activities
Many enterprises in the course of their work are forced to obtain licenses for their activities. The simplest example is medical activity, without a license, not only clinics or private offices, but even SPA salons, beauty salons (in some areas, such as piercings), beauty salons and some other organizations cannot work. Not every entrepreneur can figure out independently the subtleties of the law; therefore, there are companies on the market that help to resolve this issue. Usually, agencies that assist in registration guarantee obtaining licenses, if, of course, the company-customer meets all the requirements.
The agency itself acts as a consulting company, it does not have any significant advantages from a legal point of view over its customers, because the activities aimed at assisting in obtaining a license, in turn, does not imply licensing. In fact, such a company provides legal services that can be provided by any competent lawyer. Moreover, given that the company is free from the need (in most cases) to represent the interests of its customer in court. In fact, all that is needed to work in this direction is knowledge and, if possible, communication in the local branch of the Federal Service for Supervision of Health. Already only with these opportunities there are quite a few chances to find a lot of clients and, most importantly, to successfully complete the task.
An entrepreneur should decide on the directions that he will develop in his work. Firstly, this is a definition of whether the work is aimed at legal entities or individuals (they may also be granted a license in some cases), or both categories. Here you need to assess the level of competition in your region. If this is a large city, then almost certainly there are quite a few companies that are engaged in such services, and it is better to start from a small office, but highly specialized. Secondly, because you still need to decide on the fact that the company will receive a medical license for any activity. For example, there are offices that help only small businesses or beauty salons. And there are those who deal only with large clinics that work in many profiles. It is better to become a professional in a narrow field, to achieve virtually one hundred percent confidence that the client’s order will be completed successfully, and only after that can it be developed in other directions. Working in a big city, you can easily find customers only your chosen specialization. But in a small settlement it makes sense to begin to engage in all possible directions at once, because otherwise the flow of clients will not allow generating profits. And yes, if competitors are already working there, it will be difficult to attract consumers to your side. In the work of such a company, reputation and positive feedback is especially important, for which it is necessary to keep the high level of services provided.
So, first you need to determine the place of work. The best solution is the city center, there will be a fairly large number of potential customers nearby. They are all novice entrepreneurs, and a considerable percentage of them, too, are looking for places closer to the center for starting a business. True, clinics can be located throughout the entire city, but business districts are still a convenient place to negotiate. However, you can save a lot if you find a room not in the center, because there the rent cost is usually lower. The cost itself is difficult to calculate, but for such work it will be necessary (at least at the beginning) a small office of up to 30 m2 in size. On average, it will cost 20-30 thousand rubles, in megacities an order of magnitude more expensive (it can reach up to 100 thousand rubles in some business center), in smaller cities it is somewhat cheaper. You also need to consider that you may need to repair your premises, and, of course, you will need to buy appropriate equipment for work.
In general, for 100 thousand rubles you can bring your small office in good condition, so that it will be possible to receive clients in the office and perform all the necessary work. In essence, for 200 thousand rubles you can open an agency that helps in obtaining a medical license, this amount will include the cost of rent, money for registration, repair and office equipment (some entrepreneurs start a similar business and with investments slightly less – up to 100 thousand) . If you do not create a cash reserve, then this is the minimum amount to open such a business.
Now the next stage is hiring professionals who will deal directly with assistance in obtaining licenses, and simply employees for their office. The entrepreneur himself can take a management position, but it is best if he himself understands jurisprudence.
