Legal advice on business Start-ups


When starting up in business it is essential to get off on the right foot. It is important to consider the nature of the legal framework that will suit your long term objectives from the outset. This may mean operating as a sole trader, setting up a limited company or limited liability partnership or entering into partnership, depending on your circumstances and how you want to run your business.


Factors which will typically influence your decisions will be:


 Whether you are in business alone or with others

 Your tax position

 Your long term objectives

 Any regulatory compliance issues associated with the business you are entering into

 How you want to trade

 Whether you want to limit your personal liability
