Are you running business from home; Council Tax?

There are many entrepreneurs who run their business from home. Not many of them are aware that you might need a separate insurance or even a business rates might be applicable?

Over the course of 2 decades we have seen many clients, companies etc they run from the comfort of their own home. They start small and scale it up which is an extraordinary model as it will put very less pressure on the entrepreneurs and they can focus on growing their business. However we advise our client to check first with their landlord or estate agent to confirm if they are allowed to open a company and use their home address as registered office address or now.

On many occasions we have seen a clause put in the rental contract that stops the tenant or entrepreneurs to use their residential address as registered office address, in this scenario it could be a breach of contract with your landlord.

As a solution to this there are many companies like Regus etc which will allow a small businesses or even a sole trader to use their designated office address as the company’s registered office address for a fixed monthly fees etc. There could also be a facility of booking board rooms and organise conference or have a meeting likewise. This helps a small businesses to enhance their image.

We would recommend our client to check whether it is allowed to do business from the premises registered. It is always good to be on the safe side then getting caught after.

Is debt funding right for you?

We have seen many clients use debt as one of the funding method. This is obvious in many businesses. We have seen many businesses going into administration because they are unable to repay their loan.

We always advise our clients, we plans debt funding to be aware and conscious of the cashflow and the pay back period. Every businesses should follow “cash is king” mentality and it is. it can create a complete chaotic situation if this cannot be managed well.

Plan ahead for the next 3-5 years before you apply for debt whether the business will be able to fund it and decide accordingly.
