The Intellectual Property Regulation Board

Small Businesses

On this page we are planning to link information particularly relevant to small and newly set up businesses. This page is a new development.

Follow this link to the “your small business” page on the Legal Choices website.

Legal Choices: your-small-business

There are some very helpful Factsheets.

(the Legal Choices website is jointly funded by the legal regulators)

We appreciate that not all small businesses are in London but the City of London Corporation has a dedicated page:

City of London: Business Support

Not all businesses are set up as limited companies but many are and Companies House has some information on setting up your business this way (and also as limited liability partnerships)

Companies House: starting a company

and the Government may help too!

Govt: business-finance-support-finder

although the Government will want some tax from you.

Govt: VAT
