Creating A Company
Many United Kingdom residents who are interested in becoming financially successful are interested in creating a company. Business ownership can provide many benefits such as favorable tax ramifications, increased cash flow, and leverage. What is the first step and how do you go about creating a company? Well, read on for a few different strategies that can be employed to launch your own business.
The first step is to ignore all of the negative feedback that will undoubtedly come your way once you announce your intentions to start your own business. People will quote you statistics and point out all of the potential obstacles you will face. That’s fine. Do not allow these individuals to discourage you. As you are about to find out there is more than one way to go about creating a company.
When launching a new business from scratch you are responsible for all legal compliance as well as establishing the infrastructure of your company. At the very least you should decide whether it is necessary to utilize a corporate status or whether to inquire about registration under the UK Companies Act, which is a much more economical and straightforward form of registration appropriate to small business enterprises. Bear in mind the benefits and drawbacks to each choice. You should also acquire a business license, register your company with the UK Companies House, prepare a business plan, open a business checking account, select an insurance agent and obtain business insurance. Perform any of the following tasks that apply to your particular situation:
- Obtain business licenses or permits (if applicable)
- Request the Registrar of Companies issue a certificate of incorporation (if applicable)
- Draft Articles of Association or use the standard Model Articles (if applicable)
- Send for the appropriate central government and local government tax forms
Another option if all of this seems somewhat daunting or overwhelming is to consider buying a franchise or building a MLM (multi-level marketing) business. Financially speaking, MLM typically has relatively low start-up costs compared to other small business and franchise start-ups. MLM also offers the advantage of leveraged results, mentoring, and usually marketing and sales support and pre-existing systems. Franchising is also an option for those who can afford the costs associated with creating a company in this fashion. Franchises provide the opportunity to go into business for yourself with an excellent chance of success at a minimum of risk. You will have access to established products or services, marketing assistance, start-up assistance, management assistance, brand name recognition, as well as proven systems and business models.
Creating a company is a worthwhile endeavor and if accomplished correctly can be the foundation for a business that offers the lifestyle and income you are looking for. Consider all your options and do your research.
