You’ll need advice when you write a business plan
If you contact us while you’re writing your business plan, we will be able to use our accounting software to add financial projections and other reports to it.

You’ll need advice about your company’s legal structure
Not all businesses have the same legal structure – there are different types that are determined by a number of factors. Some might be called limited companies,limited liability partnerships or corporations, others could be sole traders or proprietors. You should carefully consider each type before deciding which one best suits you. For example, you may do business as a sole trader or sole proprietor, working on a self-employed basis and invoicing under your own name.If this is the case, you might be able to offset some of your living expenses against tax.
However,this also means you could be held personally liable for any business-related obligations. If your business fails to pay a supplier, defaults on a debt or loses a lawsuit, the creditor could legally come after your house or other possessions.
With a limited liability company structure, it’s different. As the name suggests, the liability of the business is limited to the assets owned by the business, not you personally (though there may be exceptions in some circumstances).
We can explain the legal business structures available and help you choose the one that best suits you.
