Starting a Business
Starting up your own business is a big decision to make – it carries many benefits but also an equal number of risks. However, with careful planning many of the risks can be minimised.
Most people start a business because they have a good business proposition, and the enterprise and commitment to see it through, not because they are experts in the legal and financial aspects of running a business.
In fact, these matters can often seem daunting, and even off-putting, to the budding entrepreneur. The good news is that you do not need to be an expert in these fields to succeed in business. All you need is the support of a team of trained experts. That's where we fit in. Bring us your business ideas and we'll help you to evaluate them and put them into practise in a constructive and realistic manner. Read our blog about why people startup in business.
Before forming your company, Prime will discuss which business structure would be most suitable for you. Having managed hundreds of companys' formations, Prime is widely experienced in advising which business structure would best match your requirements:
Business planning is essential if you are to maximise the profit potential of your business. Prime Chartered Accountants offers a business planning service to help identify appropriate targets and set key measures for your company’s performance and profitability.
Should you be VAT registered? Until your business reaches the compulsory VAT registration threshold, you will have the choice to become voluntarily VAT registered. Whereas businesses reaching the compulsory threshold must make an application to become VAT registered with HMRC and subsequently file VAT returns.
As a new employer, you will need to set up a Pay As You Earn (PAYE) scheme with HMRC in order to submit Income Tax and National Insurance payments for your employees. Our guide, Payroll – Basic Procedures, gives a basic overview of what you need to operate PAYE, including which forms you'll need and key dates. Prime can assist you with this process if you wish to manage your company’s payroll in-house.
Getting the structure of your business right can have a tremendous effect on the amount of tax that you will pay over its lifetime, and when you sell or pass it on.
Every business needs a way of keeping its books. There are lots of systems to choose from, both installed on your computer or used online. We have experience of many systems and can help you decide which is right for you.
What systems will your business need?
Every business, no matter how small, needs systems both to enable it to comply with the regulations relevant to that type of business but also to provide the business owner with information about how the business is performing and to help him or her deliver their product or service.
Every new and established limited company has to comply with the statutory requirements of company returns. Our team specialises in all levels of Company Secretarial services which means your business can be assured of statutory compliance at all times.
Any business, large or small, is likely to face the unexpected at some time but you can reduce this risk by planning ahead, giving your company protection for the future. Whether your business is an LLP, sole trader, partnership or limited company, Prime’s Company Protection schemes provide you with complete peace of mind and are designed to match your business and personal requirements:
We provide a very comprehensive but cost-effective shareholders' agreement. Every company should have one. Get in touch and find out more.
A large number of overseas businesses have experienced the benefits of utilising Prime Chartered Accountants to form their UK operations. Prime has significant experience acting for overseas-owned companies and provides a range of company formation, accounting and advisory services.
