Forming a Company in Scotland

Online company incorporation in Alba: if you are thinking of starting a business, it pays to know the local rules and regulations, as well as the best incorporation structure in Alba. So before you get started, get some expert advice from Coddan . Of course, you first have to decide what your business is all about, what you're going to do. Then you can get creative and decide upon a business name, but before you invest too much time in the company identity, you should check with Companies House to make sure nobody else has registered the name of a company or something too close. If they have, you might not be allowed to use or reserve the company name you want to incorporate in Scotland.

Then it's time to decide on a business structure. This could be anything from sole trader status through to a limited company set-up or even more complex structures like a Scottish limited liability partnership. Every structure comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. So if you're unsure then it pays to speak to someone like Coddan Formations Agency at an early stage to figure out just what is the best way to structure your limited company in Scotland.

Think about starting out as a part-time business, rather than full-time, and whether you can work from home or if you need to take on premises and vehicles from the outset. If it is the latter, you will almost certainly need to arrange some finance for the business. Banks are not known for being generous with start-up loans right now, but it is always the first port of call before looking into venture capitalists and business angels. Business Gateway offers free events covering a wide range of business issues, including taxes, marketing, networking and business planning that can prove invaluable to new businesses.

Remember, too, that you don't just need money to start the business in Scotland. You need to cover your own expenses until it pays out and keep any staff paid or bills covered on the business side as well. Build in a contingency fund at the planning stage, plan your cash flow meticulously and then be prepared to spend a little more or wait a little longer for payment. It will almost certainly happen in the early stages.

Sadly 20% of businesses fold in the first year and 50% go under within three years. Don't let those figures put you off; many of those failures could be averted with careful planning in the concept phase. A thorough business plan is also an essential part of any business start-up, it is the series of questions you should ask yourself about the businesses' viability crystallised on paper.

Then it's on to the fun stuff, a marketing and sales plan that will bring the customers to your door. Then you get to put it into action and, if the planning stages are perfect, you will be rolling in success before you even know it.
