Ticking all the Legal Boxes

Businesses need structure, a framework in which to operate, internal procedures and their relationship with the outside world.  These tools influence how you trade, measure profit, grow your business and create an exit strategy. Setting up your business in the best way for the business to prosper is essential so it is important to decide the type of business and have sound agreements in place:

Trading as Sole trader/ partnership V Corporate Structure;

Formalising the relationship between business partners in a contract to deal with their rights, duties and exit routes by way of Shareholders Agreement or Partnership Deed;

Terms and Conditions of Trading which ensure that the terms with the customer/client are clear, fair and workable, limit your liability and are enforceable if something goes wrong;

Ensuring that the terms of finance are satisfactory for the business; and limiting personal guarantees to the finance provided and as far as possible, on terms which are not disproportionate to what is being advanced;

At the end of the day, making a successful exit limiting post completion risk with a view to worry-free retirement or reinvestment in another business.
