Expert advice on business structuring
Starting your own business can be incredibly empowering. Incubating an idea, turning it into something tangible, setting your own milestones and striking out on your own is exciting and fulfilling. It is also enormously challenging and getting the right legal advice at the start is vital.
Our family business lawyers can advise on the different types of structures and vehicles commonly used in the UK and their different commercial, legal and tax considerations. Your structure may also need to change as your business develops and matures. Thinking about this early on will help you make informed decisions about your business, potentially saving time, money and stress down the line.
