Business Start Ups
Starting a new business can be an exhilarating and exciting time. In the early stages when resources may be scarce, it may seem wise not to spend money on a solicitor to help set up your new business. This can be a false economy and getting proper legal advice from early on is the easiest way to get your new business off to the best start.
Amongst other things, we can work with your accountant and ensure that the correct structure is used for your business, whether you want to set up as a sole trader, partnership or company. If transport is at the heart of your business, we will also guide you through the process of applying for an operator’s licences(s) and ensure that it/they are in the correct entity. We will advise you on how to document your internal governance arrangements correctly so that should the worse happen, your business arrangements should be in good shape, thereby minimising disruption to your business.
At Backhouse Jones, our corporate team are happy to assist. We are experienced in advising on business start-ups of all sizes and types and have an in-depth understanding of businesses in the bus, coach and HGV sectors and issues peculiar to them. We will listen to your thoughts and respect the manner in which you run your business, because we understand that each business is different and you want to get the job done.
