Forming a new business

Who is this for?

Anyone ready to start a business

What is this about?


Having a great business idea is just the first step in your startup journey.

When you’ve decided you’re going to launch, you need to register a company, so that you can start trading.

Small businesses regularly ask us for help with launching their business. We’ve collected the questions they ask most, and our favourite resources from our partners, volunteers, and other experts to answer them. You’ll also find great mentors and events for more support.

Instead of spending hours on Google and watching countless videos, make this your first port of call.
