(MIC) was established and incorporated on January 1, 2012, by Bruce Waiters and has;just completed its third year of operations with a year end of December 31. Bruce was born in the Muskoka;region and aft;er completing his university degree in history, he decided to return to the area to set up his own;business. Aft;er months of research, Bruce decided to open his business along the Gravenhurst waterfront.;His research showed that there was tremendous potent;ial in that area, especially;during the summer tourist;season, for a small caf? with an Internet service. Local cottagers without service suggested that they would;fi;nd it appealing to check their email while shopping in the trendy area.;MIC runs out of 90 square metres (1,000 square feet) of space. It has one entrance into the caf? and;patio doors leading out to a deck that overlooks the water. MIC pays $5,000 per month for the rental of the;space. Bruce was able to negotiate with the landlord and was not required to pay the fi;rst month?s rent in;advance. All of his rental payments are current and up to date. For the last two years, MIC has had a very;reliable accountant prepare its year-end fi;nancial statements and everything has been correct.
