You will want to establish a legal structure for your business, the most popular being a sole trader or limited company. Operating as a sole trader is the simplest form of managing your business. Legally there is no distinction between the sole-trader business and its owner, whereas a limited company is a separate legal entity that can buy, sell and enter into contracts independently from the owners. While there can be tax advantages from trading through a limited company, there is a greater administrative burden that does not suit everyone.
By discussing your particular circumstances we can help you decide what would be best for you. You will need to register your new business for taxes, for income tax or corporation tax purposes at least and possibly for VAT and PAYE too.
Whatever business structure you choose you have a legal obligation to keep good accounting records. We can help you with procedures to do this and advise on software systems you can use.
If this less glamorous side of running the business doesn’t appeal to you we can take care of it for you. Our service is very flexible in that we can do as much or as little as you would like or to fit a budget. Communication is important to us and is something we encourage with our clients. For example, as your registered agent we can offer you ad-hoc telephone advice without further charge.
We try to make our fees as fixed and transparent as possible. Our fee structure is published annually for your guidance. There are no hidden extras to worry about.
Our first consultation is always free of charge and there is no obligation to sign up as a client because the time is being used principally to get to know each other. It is important for you to have confidence in working with us and for us to believe we will enjoy working with you and can provide you with a worthwhile service for your investment.
Go on, make an appointment. You really have nothing to lose.
