Partnership, sole trader or self employed

Whilst there are fewer formalities to be dealt with when starting a business in one of these formats there are still a number of official form to be completed and filed with the authorities and we will guide you through this.

Company or Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) formation

We will arrange for your new company to be formed and registered with Companies House. It is usually possible to complete this with 48 hours or so. You will need to make decisions about the ownership and management of the company and we will discuss the options with you and help you make the right decisions.

Before you form a company however we will review with you whether this is the right vehicle for your new business.

As soon as your new business is set up you will need to look at the requirements that apply to an established business and we suggest that you look at these areas: company administration and accounting; and because your business will be liable to pay tax you should also look at company and business tax. You will probably also need to register for VAT and if you will be employing staff you will need to talk to us about your payroll.

Talk to your contact at LFF about setting up your new business, or call one of the team, or send us an email and we will get in touch with you.
