Getting Ready for Business – Harrogate

This is a first step for anybody considering starting up their own business.

We will cover the basics that you should understand before taking those first steps and for those that have recently started a chance to reflect on whether you have covered everything.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • What’s involved in starting your own business
  • Marketing – including who are your customers and competitors?
  • Legal trading styles – which is right for you?
  • What to consider when deciding upon your business name
  • Tax and National Insurance
  • Do you need Insurance or a licence to trade?
  • The Business Plan – it doesn’t have to be that complicated!
  • The numbers – we consider pricing, start-up costs and most importantly cash flow.
