  • fit out of working environment such as work benches and storage. You should explain why this is necessary and appropriate to your type of business
  • purchase of specialist equipment particular to your business. You should explain why this is necessary and appropriate to your type of business (please note, this excludes purchase of IT equipment)
  • deposit required by the landlord
  • costs associated with updating your marketing to reflect your new address
