If you are planning to open a tuition centre, never ever do it without having a license.
This is speaking from experience of a friend who opened one without license and got busted within 10 months. He got fined RM25,000 for the offence and was blacklisted from ever getting a genuine tuition centre license!
Worst of all, he had joined one of those so-called fanchise daycare cum tuition centers as a franchisee. The franchisor initially promised alot of critical things like licensing and proper support but in the end nothing satisfactory was delivered.
My friend had to pay a 5 figure sum as joining fee to the so-called "francise" HQ.
Just get a license for your peace of mind.
And, contrary to popular belief, the cost to start and run a tuition centre successfully is not as low as most people think. According to my friend, there were alot of recurring costs to maintain the centre. Parents and students nowadays are generally not like in the past. They are more demanding now with higher expectations of safety, cleanliness, comfort, price, added-value services, and so forth. So, the operational hidden costs are definitely there.
In the 10 months that my friend's tuition business stayed open, he had lost roughly RM60,000 (not inclusive of the RM25,000 compound from the authorities).
There are alot of successful tuition businesses out there, but then again for every successful one there are probably a few unsuccessful ones. Maybe its better to invest our hard-earned money in something more secure during these trying times.
