BUSINESS START-UPS & COMPANY FORMATIONS  

We can help you decide how you should start up your business from day one including: 
 
the structure for your business whether that be as a sole trader, limited company etc 
registering you and your business with HMRC 
preparing cashflow forecasts for you and potential lenders 
advice on how to record business transactions and the best software for you 
setting up a payroll and CIS scheme if required 
advising whether you should register for VAT 
 
Choosing to operate your business via a limited company could be a very tax efficient decision. Abacus can advise you on the pros and cons of operating your business via a limited company. 

Pension Auto Enrolment 

If your business operates a payroll scheme it will be given a Staging Date by which you will have to register your employees for Pension Auto Enrolment. 
 
As an employer you will be required to make pension contributions toward any scheme that your employees also make a contribution to. 
 
We can advise you on what you are required to do and by what date. Any business that does not have the scheme in place by the Staging Date is likely to be penalised at least £400 so don’t fall foul of this ruling!
