What do I need to do to begin?

Once you begin trading, your services and income are taxable. You must make sure you have taken all the necessary steps and registered the appropriate details depending on the type of business you run. Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Registering your business with HMRC;
  • Acquiring any necessary licences or permits; 
  • Setting up employee payroll and pensions;
  • Determining an office location, or deciding whether you work from home;
  • Acquiring any necessary Insurance; and
  • Determining how you trade (online, abroad, etc.)

Depending on these factors, you may be required to pay more or less tax. Our experienced accountants will be able to assess this for you and guide you through the processes.

What about funding?

If you are planning to apply for funding to aid your business start-up, Sherlock & Co can also  advise you on the best ways to approach this. Additionally, we can break down your current financial situation and advise you on how best to use your money, as you may find out that you do not need to apply for funding.
