Complying with the Law

Once you have decided to start a new business, you need to make sure that you have all of the legal formalities in place. This includes choosing the right legal structure to suit your particular circumstances and ambitions as well as registering with HM Revenue and Customs.

We have provided an overview of the most common legal issues here and details of contacts locally where support is available.
