Starting Your Own Business

Starting Your Own Business

Starting your own business can be very rewarding, but it can also be a very stressful time.  From the daily drudge of 9-5 with a salary at the end of the month to doing something you enjoy doing all the hours you can without any guarantees there will be much left at the end of the month to pay yourself.

But, many people do enter self-employment and are very successful. 

It may feel like the wrong time to be starting a new business - but is there ever a right time?  If you wait until the economy picks up you may have left it to late and someone could be doing what you dream of doing now.

At IQ Chartered Accountants in Scarborough we can help and advise you when starting up your business.  From helping you decide whether you should be a sole trader or a limited company, to doing your VAT returns and sorting out all your tax affairs with HMRC.

We offer a free initial consultation where you can tell us about your business idea and then we can advise you how we can help you.  There's no obligation for you to use us as your accountant - it's just free, no nonsense advice from people who are used to helping new start ups.

In fact (without wishing to blow our own trumpets), Business Link Yorkshire recognised our expertise and chose IQ Chartered Accountants to deliver their FAST Start programme for people becoming self-employed across the Yorkshire Region.

Please have a look at our website for further information about how we can help you.  http://www.iqaccountants.co.uk/
