Starting a business is a big undertaking and can be challenging and extremely daunting.

Our Chartered Secretary, Trina Hill, gives her top ten tips to starting your own business...


  1. Be clear about how you will finance your business: set a first year budget and stick to it.
  2. Keep up-to-date records of income and expenditure and regularly monitor cash flow and profit/loss.
  3. Have a contingency plan - for everything! 
  4. Explore all the possible methods of marketing your business, not forgetting that there are lots of free ones available.
  5. Beware of scams that target new businesses. 
  6. Write a business plan, even if it's just as a guide for you to set things out officially. 
  7. Start your business because you want to and because you enjoy doing what you do.
  8. Don't be afraid of making mistakes - that's how most of us learn the valuable lessons.
  9. Believe in yourself, but make sure you have people around you who can offer a 'reality check' or act as a sounding board. 
  10. Take professional tax and legal advice to ensure that your business structure is right for you and your objectives.
