What business structure will you choose?

Will you go it alone, or team up with other people?

Will you be a sole trader? Or a partnership? A limited company? An LLP? A charity?

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer. Everyone’s circumstances are different.

We’ll explain the differences and the pros and cons in easy-to-understand language, to help you decide what’s best for you.

What will you need to run your business?

Should you join any industry organisations or societies?

What other relationships will you need to put in place in order to succeed? Are there other types of assistance available to you? We’ll help you navigate through the minefield.

What paperwork will you need? What about contracts with people you’ll be dealing with on a day to day basis? We’ll supply what you need in clear language, with a minimum of legal jargon.
