When starting a new business, there are a number of regulations to comply with and procedures that must be followed.
A new business must register with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and, depending on the circumstances and the type of business being set up, it may be necessary to register the business with the relevant local authority. If the new business is going to employ staff, the owners of the business need to be aware of, and comply with, a range of employment legislation.
This factsheet identifies the major business regulations and obligations that will affect the start up of a new business. It includes the contact details of relevant government agencies and links to sources of further information.
