Business Start-ups

Start-ups are vital to our economy but also involve an element of risk. It is important to give your venture the best possible chance of success and avoid any problems in the future by addressing all the legal and financial issues involved in starting a business. At Boyd Legal, we work with you to ensure all the legal aspects involved in getting your start-up off the ground are comprehensively and thoroughly dealt with, allowing you to focus on successfully growing your business.

The legal matters relevant to you depend on your vision for your business – the following are just a few areas we can help you with:

  • Corporate structures – for any new business this is a key consideration that has significant tax and liability implications. Working with our tax advisors, we guide you on the most suitable corporate vehicle for your business, whether that involves operating as a sole trader, partnership or limited company, and make sure you have agreements in place that regulate the relationships between those involved.
  • Commercial premises – we will help you find a property that suits your business and budget, and guide you through the entire process, whether negotiating the terms of a lease or finalising a commercial property purchase.
  • Agreements and contracts – agreements and contracts are a means for regulating relationships with suppliers, customers or employees. We make sure all your legal paperwork and documents are robustly drafted, achieve what they set out to do and protect your interests.
  • Employment law – employers are subject to strict obligations to workers and employees, which can result in serious consequences for a business if not respected. We can help you understand your rights and responsibilities as an employer, draft employment contracts and set up disciplinary and other procedures so that you comply with the law and grow and retain your best staff.
  • Tax and insurance – businesses are subject to different types of tax, including national insurance, corporation tax and VAT. Our team of experienced accountants will provide you with expert guidance on your business’s tax liabilities and help you get the right insurance in place to protect against risk.
