Business Start Up

The number of people starting up their own business in the UK continues to grow, with more and more individuals making the decision to work for themselves in this challenging economic climate. 

Unemployment, and the general lack of job opportunities has been a key factor in driving this increase; however the type of individual starting a new businesses could not be wider and includes school leavers, full-time Mums, retired executives, and everything in between. Though these individuals typically have one thing in common, they start up in business because they have a good business idea together with the enterprise and commitment to see it through — not because they are experts in the legal, financial, and fiscal aspects of running a business.
