Starting a business

When you are setting up a business you need to get your structure right at the beginning to minimise your exposure to risk.

We are a friendly and approachable team and we here to help you.

Do you realise that if you operate as a sole trader you have unlimited liability and all your assets could be at risk?  There are key things you must do and are required to have by law.

If you opt for a partnership, a limited liability partnership (LLP) or a limited liability company, you need to govern the relationship with your business partners and shareholders – especially regarding management of the business and exit routes.

For example, if you don’t incorporate restrictions in an agreement, someone could leave and compete with you.  Or you could terminate someone’s employment but remain stuck with them as a shareholder, if you don’t have compulsory transfer provisions.

Right structure for your business

We can advise on the right structure and draft or review and negotiate partnership, LLP agreements or shareholder agreements.

You need to ensure your constitutional documents work with your shareholders’ agreement.  We can help with the issue and allotment of shares, board and shareholder resolutions and any company law or Companies House requirements.

Furley Page will get to the bottom of what you need and help you achieve your objectives.
