Business startup advice

Evaluate business ideas

Most people who start up in business do so because they have a good business proposition and the enterprise and commitment to see it through, whereas the legal, financial, and fiscal aspects of running a business are a mystery.

Indeed, 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 Coveney Nicholls fit in. Bring us your business ideas and we’ll help you to evaluate them in a constructive and realistic manner. We can also help you:

  • Decide on the most suitable structure for your business – sole trader, partnership, or limited company
  • Prepare a business plan, cashflow projections, budgets, and trading forecasts
  • Assess your finance requirements, advise on the best sources of finance, and draw up the necessary proposals
  • Establish a good working relationship with your bank
  • Complete any registration procedures with Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs
  • Deal with company secretarial issues
  • Set up a recording system for your internal use and for complying with statutory requirements

Start your new venture on a sure footing – contact us for an initial consultation today.
