The activity of an individual entrepreneur is associated with a large number of risks and challenges that require high-quality legal assistance. It is optimal when this help is provided on time and in the proper quality, because it is this factor that depends on whether the entrepreneur will be protected from fines by the state authorities that exercise control over the conduct of his activities. In addition, legal support of a private entrepreneur is relevant in many other aspects. Let’s understand this issue in more detail.
When an entrepreneur needs legal support
When a person starts running his own business, he often sees it from a position of optimism – great prospects, income, scaling. In such a position there is enough motivation to move. But healthy realism should not be discounted. Today, business in Ukraine faces many risks and adverse circumstances that should be taken into account.
One such circumstance is that tax officials have resumed their inspections, despite the fact that a moratorium on them was previously announced until the end of martial law. Now it has become possible again after the relevant legislative changes. Therefore, so that the return of checks does not become an unpleasant surprise for business, it is worth using the services of lawyers who specialize in working precisely at the intersection of economic and civil law, which covers the regulation of business activities.
Interaction with government bodies is far from the only case when an entrepreneur may need the help of lawyers. First of all, one should not forget that any business works for the consumer. Some believe that in relations with consumers, everything depends exclusively on the quality of the product or service, and if they are at the proper level, then there will be no problems.
However, practice often shows otherwise. For example, the seller is often forced to prove the proper quality of the product through appropriate examination. With services it is more difficult. And therefore, a lot depends on a correctly drawn up contract for the provision of services. If you are interested in such a document, you can order its development from scratch in a turnkey format or proofreading and proofreading.
As for the contract, people often underestimate how important its really high-quality content is. Some treat it as a formality and use ready-made templates from the Internet. However, such templates do not convey all the variety of situations that occur in business. Therefore, it is important that the contract is adapted to you and the specifics of your business activity.
Quite often, non-governmental organizations cooperate with public organizations. This applies to situations when, for example, an public organization wins a powerful grant for project implementation and needs a contractor as its executor. To understand the specifics of cooperation with the public sector, which differs from the B2C and B2B segments, you should use consulting help if you have not had such experience before.
What services of legal support of a private entrepreneur are relevant
Specific services depend on what your specifics are in accordance with the selected Classifications of types of economic activity. The optimal solution will be if you consult a lawyer even before the moment of registration. This will provide a quality foundation for understanding where to go. In addition to consulting before and after registration, the Prykhodko&Partners legal team can offer many other useful services to its clients working in the private entrepreneur format. For example, they include:
- Assistance in obtaining a license. If you are going to engage in activities that require licensing, it means that it is quite responsible, and the lack of appropriate permit documentation will lead to the fact that you will pay large fines. In some types of business activity, working without a license can result in fines of hundreds of thousands of hryvnias. On the other hand, if you issue a license on time, it will cost only a few thousand. Such a difference is too noticeable.
- Representation in interaction with state bodies. To free yourself from unnecessary hassles and bureaucratic nuances, entrust this matter to a team of lawyers who will perform such work at an appropriate level. This will help you avoid distractions and focus on your core business activities.
- Representation in court. There can be a wide variety of situations – courts with state bodies, consumers, counterparties of contractual relations. Whatever the specific legal relationship, we will build an effective strategy for representing your interests in court.
- Mediation of disputes in the format of out-of-court regulation. Sometimes a case that could go to court can be resolved without it, if you approach it correctly and use convincing legal arguments in interaction with the other party with whom a disputed situation has arisen.
