Formation and Start-ups

Business Start-Up Lawyers in Gateshead

At Hutharts, we discuss our clients' business concept and commercial goals in-depth, ensuring all your requirements are understood, before providing insightful, pragmatic advice.

We will clarify the various categories of business entities, and explain their pros and cons in terms of your commercial goals. The four most prominent entity options are:

  • Sole traders
  • Partnership
  • Company
  • Limited Liability Partnership

Companies and LLPs have distinct tax and liability advantages over sole tradersand partnerships. But the former also usually entail a higher level of management and commercial documentation.

The final decision, of course, is yours to make, but we will provide you with a full range of expert commercial advice, on which you can base your judgement.

Business Formation: What Hutharts Can Do

If you decide to form a company or LLP, we will formally register your business with Companies House. Whatever business entity you choose, we will guide you through all the steps in the start-up process, including;

  • Reviewing and drafting contracts
  • Securing business loans
  • Hiring employees
  • Data protection, and similar regulatory matters, such as health and safety

We are also highly-skilled in the formation of online businesses; if you are interested in internet commerce we can guide you through the legal issues involved in website construction, and can deliver advice in regards to software licensing and trading terms and conditions. Our business law expertise can support you through all areas of online trading.
