Dear customers, please take the note, that you are contacting the UK based company, locating in the United Kingdom, please do not expect that we are speaking in your own language, please contact us in English language, end expect the answer in English. The English language is the most widely used language in the world. In the case if the English is not of your native language, do not hesitate to contact us; we will understand your enquiry very well.
If you prefer to speak your mother language - you can do it through an interpreter, or by contacting your local advisor or consultant (in your home country), we cannot be responsible if you cannot or do not want to speak English. We have several customer service representatives who speak Greek, Spanish, Russian and Chinese languages, but we prefer to speak in English.
We do not offer companies formation in countries, where the most population does not speak English. Our company is not orientated into the special countries, where the English is not the common language. Let us say that the initial package for non-UK customers starts from less than two hundreds of British pounds from us; ask yourself why the same package will costs you at least a thousand of Euros in your home country. May be, because the local advisor includes the fee for the knowing English into the price of the incorporation package. We do not take any responsibility for the non-supporting of other foreign languages.
Coddan's business advisors will listen to your situation and determine the best option for you; ask questions to and give preliminary advice; explain how the law applies to you; and recommend steps you can take to resolve your situation. We charge for every hour-spent onsite, with the exception of one hour per day for lunch. Note that rush rates may apply to overtime. We charge for meetings, as well as an additional hour to cover transportation time and parking. We DO NOT charge for routine materials and services, but we may charge for long-distance calls and other expenses.
Our company does not have its local representative offices in Russia, Ukraine, Spain, Germany, Greece, Republic of China or the Middle East countries; our main business location is in England; so, please do not send us enquiries in foreign languages, we accept e-mails or enquiries in English only. If you have difficult with the English language, you can use the online dictionaries, or other ways as it was described above.
If your main language is Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Chinese, etc., please note that you are contacting to the company, which is based in the United Kingdom, and we cannot afford to offer you a multinational speaking advisors. Some foreign speaking consultants can join us, and they are free to change or switch their employers; today we may have an employee, whose second or main language is Spanish, a year or a few years later, such employee can leave us, or can change the place of job, or can be on the maternity leave; and in such particular cases we cannot afford your needs to speak with our advisors in your native language. Let us say tomorrow one of our employee may fluently speaks in Hindi, but is does not mean that we can support the Hindi forever. Thanks for your understanding.

Starting Business in the United Kingdom: Important Note
The use of the Internet or e-mail for communications with our firm or any individual member of the firm does not establish an attorney-client relationship. We will try to answer to your question(s) within 2 business days. Please note: we can only answer questions of a general nature regarding company formation in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, USA and offshore jurisdictions, as it applies to persons under the age of 18 years. We will give you legal information, not legal advice. We may also refer you to other sources of information. No lawyer-client relationship will be created.
Legal advice must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each case since laws constantly change. Therefore, if you have a legal problem, you should talk to a lawyer directly. While we will do our best to keep your communication private, we cannot guarantee the confidentiality of information sent to us by e-mail.
Our business activity does not connected to any kind of retailer business, where at the end of your lunch or dinner, you get an offer to take a free menthol sweets, or similar opportunities. We strongly believe, that the legal service company cannot offer any kind of professional services free of charge as the part of the professional line of the services. What will you think if the certified accountant offers you the preparation of the annual account and its submission with the Companies Registrar and the Tax Office and at the same time offers an opportunity to keep and file your VAT records free of charge? We do not believe in such business proposals, where you do not know the quality of the service provider.
"Buy one and get one free" - this slogan is good for the retailer business activities, but not suitable for the professional services. Buy a company & get the business account free of charge, sounds good, does not it. However, to apply for a free bank account and then receive £25.00 or £50.00 as cash back looks ridiculous. We cannot imagine what businessperson would wants to establish the new business entity, and looking to get some kind of refunds or cash back offers for doing nothing.
May be such providers has nothing to offer you except of such kind of refunds or cash back? What exactly you can expect from them, rather than that kind of strange refunds?
Why Choose Us? Setting Up in Business - Seeking the Professional Advice
Setting up a business should be an exciting process, but without the right advice, it can also be a minefield, particularly where legal issues are concerned. Too often, it is not until issues reach crisis point that a solicitor's help is sought, yet by then, if a remedy is available, it is much more costly than simple preventative action. Clearly prevention is better than cure; getting legal advice at the start means crises can be avoided. An advisor can help you identify potential problems and put measures in place to prevent them - to protect your business from risk and save you money.
The structure of your business will be crucial to its success as you start up and expand. Should you trade in your own name or through a company, for example? If you are going into business with others, you need to ensure you get a fair return for your effort, so you might need a shareholders’ agreement or partnership arrangement. Our advisors can explain all the different options available to you and help you decide on the best one for your business.
Incorporate a Business; Structuring Your Business
There are several ways to structure your business. Although many businesses start as sole traders, they often end up either as a partnership or a private limited company, or sometimes, a public limited company (a 'plc').
The choice of structure, or changing a structure, needs careful consideration. It certainly depends on much more than just size or a possible tax saving. Your decision will affect how the business develops, for example, the ease with which you can attract an outside investor. The structure you choose for your business will determine how easily you can sell the business (or your stake in it) or leave it to your family or others. It can also seriously affect the tax consequences of any transfer.
Timing is often crucial, and the right moment will depend on your long-term intentions. It makes sense to review the pros and cons regularly. Although an accountant will be a key advisor, you should also consult our business advisor. The formation of a partnership or a limited company rests on important legal documents, which need to reflect accurately what you want to achieve, now and in the future. Transfer of an existing business to a new structure needs particular care. Resist using standard or "off the shelf" documents when undertaking a transfer as they can often be inferior and unable to safeguard your interests.
Your Business Premises
When selecting premises for your business, it is important that you understand all the implications of the terms of the lease. Can the rent be increased, and by how much? Will you find yourself paying escalating service charges? If you choose to run your business from home, what are the restrictions? Our advisors can advise on all these issues.
You may also want to establish what sources of finance are available and what their legal implications are. Should you mortgage the family home? Are lenders insisting on unfair terms? Our advisors will clarify these areas, and can help you negotiate a better deal with the bank.
Our specialists can also advise on how to keep taxes to a minimum.
Your business may expose you to any number of risks relating to premises, employees, assets and visitors. What if your products or workers injure someone, for example? What if someone is injured whilst working for you? What if an employee incurs you in liability because of Internet abuse? Our advisors will give you independent advice on the type of insurance you need.
Cash flow is the lifeblood of any business. Our specialists can help protect you against bad debts by making sure you use the right terms of trading. They can also assist with advice on the collection of bad debts should they arise.
Goods & Services
When buying or selling goods and services, it is important to know your legal obligations. What contract terms does the law lay down? What about product liability? How do you protect your inventions? What can you legally say in advertisements and promotional materials? Our advisors can cover all these points in detail, and where necessary, refer you to a specialist.
Buying a business that is 'ready-made' is an appealing option, but what about the small print? All too often, people find themselves trapped in a deal with expensive products and no support from the franchiser. What if the franchise doesn't come up to expectations? Can you get your money back? Our advisors can advise you on all the common problems associated with running a franchise.
Do you need a license to trade? Our advisors can tell you if you need one and can even help you apply for it.
Employment law is a complicated area, and constantly evolving. Most employment disputes arise out of poorly drafted service contracts or dismissal procedures that do not conform to statutory requirements. Our advisors can run a health check on your contracts and procedures to prevent such disputes occurring.
Disputes and Problems
Generally in business, it is best to plan for all contingencies. What if you fall out with a partner or fellow shareholder: can you be forced out? How do you make sure that responsibilities and profits are divided fairly? What will happen to your business if you fall sick or die? Will your spouse, partner or home be properly protected? Our advisors will cover all these questions with you, to prepare you and your business for all eventualities.
Employing Staff to Start Your Own Small Busines
Any owner of a business quickly discovers that there are more laws - and more potential legal pitfalls - concerning employment than almost any other aspect of commercial life.
It is important to understand your legal obligations as an employer, and be up to date, as these are constantly changing. You have a right and duty to take reasonable steps to protect your business from the actions of employees, for example, should they leave to go to a competitor. You will certainly want to prevent your trade secrets being handed on. A poorly drafted contract of employment is fatal and trying to set down complex or lengthy terms and conditions is likely to be as useless in law, as having none at all.
Every business needs good staff performance. If you encounter an employee who persistently under-performs or behaves in a way that can damage your business or its reputation, then you should remove him or her quickly and without risking a claim for unfair dismissal. Many of the legal problems - and associated costs - that trouble employers are easily avoided if the right actions are taken at the outset. Effective contracts of employment are vital, with full recognition given to the implications of different categories of employees, from full-time directors through to part-time or contract staff.
This leaflet highlights some of the key issues surrounding the employment and dismissal of staff. Effective contracts of employment are vital and it is important that the implications for different types of employees are fully considered.
