You have a good idea, you have energy and drive, so how do you make it happen?

In many start up situations, the budding entrepreneur knows everything about their product, but is totally at sea in the raft of legislation, both legal and financial that are seemingly in the way to allow them to get started.

Often a business start up will need considerable help and support in the early stages. That’s where we come in. Hobsons have had years of experience in helping businesses get off the ground.

We can help you:

  • choose the right structure; partnership, sole trader or limited company
  • set up a limited company if appropriate and advise on directors and shareholders
  • Prepare business plans and forecasts
  • Decide on and assist with setting up your record keeping system
  • Register with the authorities for VAT, PAYE

Have a look at our business start up calculator and estimate your costs.

Where your internal resources are limited, we offer a range of services including payroll bureau, which many of our clients use, or bookkeeping and management accounting services. We can deal with the administrative and legislative headaches and allow you to concentrate on getting your business off the ground. In that way you get the relevant up to date management information you will need to make the correct decisions.
