Considering the number of cleaning opportunities that exist within South Africa, starting a cleaning company is actually a good idea or plan. Cleaning business opportunities are abundant no doubt about that but to succeed you need to apply a methodical approach complimented with sound and powerful business tactics. The purpose of this blog post is to nudge people/entrepreneurs who want to start a cleaning company in South Africa in the right direction with a particular emphasis on marketing i.e winning clients for your start-up cleaning company.
1. COMPANY REGISTRATION & BUSINESS NAME
First, you need to decide on a company name. You will want to pick something professional since you are dealing with professional people that you will have to sell your services to. I don’t recommend using a “cutesy” name. This will turn off many of those professionals that will be hiring you. Choose something that shows what you are made of. The second is to register your company to a (Pty) Ltd with your chosen name. When you register your cleaning company it automatically gets registered for tax with SARS which in turn issues a tax income certificate for your company. You will be able to open a bank account for your company putting you in great position to benefit from the many financial services offered to business owners. There are many benefits of registering a company, in my next blog I will write about it.
