Each year, many French people engage in entrepreneurship. Or start a business at a cost. Indeed, it is sometimes necessary to plan for significant investments. Again, it will be up to the entrepreneur to declare his start of activity. However, such a declaration involves paying certain costs: the costs of the transplant . In addition to these registry costs, the entrepreneur may have to pay certain publication costs. However, it appears that setting up a business does not impose too high a cost.
The entrepreneur wishing to start an activity must register with the competent register. Thus, a trader will have to register with the Trade and Companies Register (RCS), while a craftsman will have to register with the Trades Directory (RM).
Registry fees related to the creation of a commercial enterprise
Thus, an entrepreneur wishing to exercise a commercial activity in the form of a company will have to pay a registration fee of 25.34 euros.
Court fees will be higher when it comes to setting up a company in order to carry on a commercial activity. Indeed, these will amount to 39.42 euros.
It therefore appears that the entrepreneur wishing to exercise a commercial activity will have to pay a small amount of registry fees. However, it may be different for the entrepreneur wishing to embark on a craft activity.
Advertising costs related to the creation of a business
Just as registration with the RCS is compulsory for an entrepreneur wishing to exercise a commercial activity, registration with the RM is obligatory for an entrepreneur wishing to engage in the exercise of a craft activity. Once again, the costs differ according to the legal form in which the activity will be carried out.
Thus, the craftsman wishing to exercise his activity in the form of a sole proprietorship of royalties in the amount of 130 euros. Likewise, the craftsman wishing to exercise his activity in the form of a company will have to pay royalties in the amount of 130 euros.
Thus, it appears that the creation of a craft enterprise supposes to pay a higher cost than for the creation of a commercial enterprise. However, these costs remain low, in particular by comparison with certain costs that may exist during the life of the company.
The specific case of the micro-enterprise
The entrepreneur who can claim the status of micro-enterprise will benefit from preferential treatment. Indeed, he will not have to pay any registry fees for his registration with the RCS.
CFE intermediation fees
In addition to the registry fees or the RM registration fees, the entrepreneur wishing to start his activity may have to pay the CFE intermediation fees. Indeed, it is possible to apply for registration with a business formalities center (CFE), which will take care of transmitting the documents relating to the creation of the business to all the organizations concerned. The intermediation of the CFE saves the time and energy of the entrepreneur. However, this intermediation is not cost. In fact, the CFE demands a check for 60 euros, in addition to the costs of the registry, for the services it offers to the entrepreneur.
Even before having to pay transplant costs , aspiring entrepreneurship will have to submit to publicity measures. Indeed, he will have to publish an announcement of the incorporation of a company, or the creation of a company, in a newspaper of legal announcements (JAL). However, such insertion has a cost. Indeed, it will take between 150 and 200 euros depending on the length of the ad.
In addition to compulsory costs, the entrepreneur may have to pay other costs, in particular when he decides to exercise his activity within a company. Indeed, the creation of a company involves drafting its statutes. However, failing to write them himself, the entrepreneur will have to use the services of a professional. Thus, a cost of drafting the articles of association may be added to the costs of the registry. This cost is variable according to the prices charged by the author of the statutes.
In addition, the entrepreneur deciding to create a company will have to provide a share capital. However, this capital may be 1 euro in certain types of companies, and it is not always necessary to appoint a contribution auditor.
Thus, it appears that creating a business does not necessarily imply too much expense. Indeed, unless you have to use the services of several professionals, it is possible to set up a business for a total cost of around 300 euros.
