Compliance is Critical, But Why Do It Alone?

Don’t let regulatory compliance get in the way of your ideas. Why not look into a compliance solutions firm to help wade through the bureaucracy?
You may have a brilliant idea for a startup. Or perhaps you want to set yourself up as a consulting engineer after a company valued your skills and your smarts. But after that project is over, what do you do next? You have to find more clients. You also have to deal with the myriad of laws, taxes, bookkeeping and other day-to-day tasks that you will soon begin to dread. You will find yourself doing everything but the engineering you love and the reasons you first hung up your shingle, the freedom to pick your projects, make your own schedule will all be distant memory.
To make sure this doesn’t happen to you are companies like Harbor Compliance. Founded by a team of government licensing specialists and tech savvy entrepreneurs, Harbor Compliance aims to take the burden of all those nitpicky (but very necessary) tasks off your plate, letting you concentrate on what you do best: engineering.
So, what can a business like Harbor Compliance do for you?
According to the company site, Harbor’s wide network of nationwide bureaus offer services that can help your business do everything from assistance through the corporate lifecycle (read: help you get incorporated, manage a fledgling firm, and keep in compliance as you expand across the United States) and manage license issues so that your company can seize any opportunity or contract that might crop up.
In essence, such a business provides a staff of dedicated personnel that can act as your guide and facilitator when it comes to taxing government compliance. That means that your team doesn’t have to dedicate valuable resources to muddling through bureaucracy. You can pass that off to a company like Harbor Compliance and get your people focused on the task of solving today’s engineering challenges.
While Harbor Compliance is a big player in the compliance field, they’re far from the only company at the table. In fact, the U.S. is rife with agencies like ECCI, JE Compliance Services and others that have staked out a claim by helping companies sift through the bureaucracy associated with compliance.
Whether you’re just setting out to start your own engineering firm or if you’re an established group looking to expand into new fields of engineering, maintaining strict compliance is critical. What isn’t as critical is doing that dirty work on your own. For that you should turn to the experts, and give your team the freedom to do what they do best—invent tomorrow’s solutions.
