This workshop was previously called Structuring Your Business.
Many people worry that they will do something wrong when they start a business, but it’s not as risky as you might think. There are a few simple steps you can take to ensure you do the right things for you, whether that’s as a freelancer, LTD company, social enterprise or other type of set-up. The content of this workshop can also be applied to voluntary projects and community interest groups.

- How to register your business
- What type of business to choose
- Which insurance you need
- Tax, VAT and NI
- Intellectual property
- Consumer rights
