Small Business Start-Ups
Starting up a new business is both exciting and frightening.
I know the legal side may be boring and the last thing in a very long list, but get it wrong and you are off to a false start. However, get the legals right at the beginning will keep you in good stead giving your business the stable base it needs from which to grow.
Some of the initial and more basic questions I often hear from a budding Alan Sugar and Richard Branson are: sole proprietor or sole shareholder in a company? Spouse and /or other business partner? Tax/profit share pitfalls and advantages? What if there is a dispute in the future? What will assist cashflow?
Your initial budgets form an important part of your business plan. We aim to help. I offer a range of fixed fee packages to help businesses start-up. Packages are tailor made to your requirements and cover the following areas:
Review and advise on the legal structure of your business
- Prepare shareholder or partnership agreement
- Recommend terms of business with your customers/suppliers
- Advise on the general aspects of owning and running a business.
- Provide you with a 30 minute consultation with one of our commercial property team of solicitors
- Provide you with an Employment Rights Pack and 30 minute consultation with our employment specialist
- Provide you with a skeleton letter of demand and 30 minute consultation (if required) with our credit control / debt recovery specialist
We can help you avoid some of the pitfalls others around you have to deal with. The legal side isn’t boring to us! Most importantly we can ensure you are clear as to your options and the consequences of each of the choices you make. Sorting the legals leaves you free to get on with building your business without worrying if it will unravel.
