Answer:

Hello,

You should start by going to a "ondernemingsloket" (in french "guichets d’entreprises agréés") where they will check which diploma's or certificates you need (or already have). For addresses: http://economie.fgov.be/fr/entreprises/vie_entreprise/Creer/Guichets_entreprises_agrees/#Liste

It is also useful to go to an accountant for a first advice. Depending on your businessplan, it might be necessary to start up a limited company.

kind regards,
