Computers in Business
Having a good idea and bags of enthusiasm and energy to make a go of it is only part of running your own business.
What about employment regulations, contractual agreements, book keeping professional advice is essential. It will be time and money well spent and the advice you receive will be recouped by the extra profitability which results. So before you start trading you should consult:
AN ACCOUNTANT WHO CAN ADVISE
Which category of business is best for you
How to approach your bank manager
Help with preparing a business plan
Setting up and preparing company accounts, Tax and VAT liability
Applying for grants
Cash flow and budgeting forecasting
A SOLICITOR WILL HELP YOU WITH:
The legal formation of the company
Patent and copyright law
THE LOCAL ENTERPRISE AGENCY:
Will provide generally free advice on setting up in business, sorting out problems, training, and raising finance.
THE BANK MANAGER:
A friend and adviser rather than an obstacle. Some banks offer free banking to new businesses and most have a specially trained adviser on small business problems.
Useful when buying, renting or leasing premises.
