Setting up a business
We understand that when starting a business, you want to be up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our commercial solicitors offer a full business start-up and corporate formation service covering the various business structures available, giving you the support you need to make yours a success:
- Sole trader
- Private limited company
- Guarantee company
- Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)
- Community Interest Company (CIC)
- Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO)
We will work with you to set up your business structure and governing documents, including articles of association, shareholder or partnership agreement. In the case of companies seeking assistance under the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Seed EIS relief, we advise on qualifying conditions, clearance and formal approval applications.
We liaise with Companies House and/or the Charity Commission on compliance and filing requirements and create the registers you are required to hold by law, leaving you free to focus on the running of your new venture.
We will also advise you on key operational and trading matters, including steps you should take to protect your new business to ensure the best possible start for your venture.
