Administration FAQS

What are the different types of business structures?

To find out which is the best for your circumstance, just call us and one of our team will guide you through the advantages and disadvantages of each.

What tax issues will I have to consider?
The tax you pay will depend on the legal structure you choose.  As an example, if you register as a sole-trader or a traditional partnership you will have to complete a tax self-assessment form and pay income tax on your profits.  If you are a registered company, you will be subject to corporation tax.  VAT is also a consideration you should consider depending on your turnover.
