Welcome to our business start-up page

Firstly, congratulations, running your own business can be a most satisfying experience, but it can also be a most stressful one!

Once you have made your mind up to run your own business you will need start up advice on how best to get to grips with the legal requirements, will you operate as a sole trader business, maybe a partnership between relatives or friends, how about a limited liability partnership or even a limited company?

So many options, and they don’t stop there, you have to consider will you be registered for VAT, what about operating PAYE, what business name should you use, and the list goes on.

Fortunately, at Holden Associates we understand the concerns of a start up, in fact in 2002 that is what we were, so dealing with the ‘taxman’, the ‘vatman’, the bank manager, and everything else that you are now responsible for can seem like a lot to deal with, but with Holden Associates at your side it will be made a whole lot easier.

For total support, and help with taking your business idea forward don’t delay, contact Holden Associates today on 01704 320560.

We are only too happy to arrange an informal meeting with you over coffee to chat through your concerns and answer your questions.
