It is a common trait amongst entrepreneurs to just want to 'get on with it'. However, if you want to maximise your chances of success, it is worth putting in time and effort before you start to ensure that you have set-up correctly.
Contents: The key important dates, legal and HMRC requirements; a simple to follow step-by-step guide; relevant fact-sheets; business plan, cash flow forecast, personal survival budget and marketing plan templates; our own very popular start-up map; contents of our Start Your Own Business CD-Rom; and a Powerpoint presentation to accompany the business plan.
We are extremely grateful to our recommended local partners, without whom this site would not exist. They have been good enough to support us and are equally as keen to help you too. Where appropriate, please do make the most of the services that they provide (and say that you found them here!).
