Doing the admin

Hi, my name is Eitan.

I am a partner at Legalese, a legal firm that specialises in helping small businesses. Once you have made the decision to start your business you need to establish the legal relationships that define it. Your business’s relationship with the state (registration and tax), your internal relationships (with your employees, partners and investors) and your external relationships (your clients, your service providers) are what make your business real. All these relationships are usually managed by a contract or regulation (when it comes to the state).


Data from the World Bank shows that in 2018 it took on average 40 days to start a business in South Africa. In New Zealand it takes one.

In this module we will cover:

  • How to set up legal framework of your business
  • How to draft agreements with your partners
  • How to register your business

Let’s get started!
