Choosing the Legal Structure for Your business

 
Choosing the Legal Structure for Your business  

The legal structure you choose for your business will determine your responsibilities in a number of areas such as required paperwork and tax as well as how you deal with profit and loss. It can affect the name you trade under, as you will not be able to register a Limited company name if it’s already taken.

 

Find out more about different structures for businesses, charities and non-profit making organisations and what they mean in order to choose the right one for your business.

Some businesses choose to register trade marks or brands. More details of what can be registered and how, can be found here.

A good business name can be a powerful marketing tool, so it’s important to understand the legal structure you want and the availability of the name you want.
