Owner Requirements for Standard Businesses

In order to be considered for a standard business in Bayside-GTA, an applicant must at minimum meet the following criteria:

  • Applicants must be residents of Bayside City – GTA for at least 3 real time weeks
  • Applicants must pass a criminal background check
  • Applicants must have a robust job history with a primary focus on front facing position(s) that interact with the public in a roleplay capacity. NPC jobs such as truck driving or deliveries do not count towards this requirement.
  • Applicants must be financially sound. Each applicant will undergo a thorough background and credit history check. Those with no or insufficient credit history will not be considered for business ownership. If financing is needed, a loan application must be submitted, and a pre-approval note obtained from the Bank for a business loan to be considered. Credit is built by purchasing vehicles, homes, obtaining loans, remaining in good standing, and avoiding repossessions. 
  • Applicants must complete a “New Business Owner” Consultation with the SAS Agency. Applicants will receive guidance on creating a business proposal and building a professional resume.  
    • The application packet must include a resume, a business proposal (via #Applications in Discord), and a pre-approval from PSB (if financing is sought)
  • If approval is granted, an applicant will have to agree to all terms proposed and then sign a Business Ownership Contract with City Leadership as a new business owner. Please note that failure to abide by the terms of this contract will result in the loss of the business. (Contract to include language on no-refunds, audits, ownership responsibilities/marketing/promotion/etc)

Financing

Financing will be available for all business types through Pacific Standard Bank. Bank staff review all loan applications and will issue a pre-approval to potential business owners.  As with all other loans through the Bank, borrowers will have a set loan term and will be expected to make payments over time. Defaulting on a business loan will lead to termination of business ownership contract and repossession of business. 

Registration & Business Permits

All businesses must be registered in CAD and an active business permit will be required for a business to remain in good standing. New owners may purchase permits from City Hall and ensure that they are being renewed on a timely basis. Failure to maintain licensure may result in disciplinary action to include termination of business ownership contract and repossession of business. 

Pricing

Pricing will be an ongoing process for the life of this server! The more players we get, the more jobs, more opportunities we have, things will regularly fluctuate. Business prices and salaries may be adjusted.  

Quality Assurance & Compliance

The Chamber of Commerce (CoC) will investigate complaints, assure compliance of contract terms, and partner with the Bank to conduct financial audits. All business owners must agree to cooperate with the CoC as the oversight body for all businesses. Proposals for disciplinary action will be decided upon by the Board during hearings.

Tier 1 & Tier 2 Businesses

For those looking to make additional contributions to the server, Bayside City also has Tier 1 and Tier 2 businesses that incorporate additional customization and scripting aimed at enhancing role play. You can learn more about each by following the link below.
