A company in the UK is one that has been incorporated and registered with Companies House. Usually referred to as a limited company, a company law firm can help you register your new business, or convert your existing business to company status. Many businesses choose company status as it can have a number of key taxation advantages. Also, as a company director, you have limited liability that limits how you have to pay any debts your business incurs.
A company law firm can give you initial advice about whether setting up a company is the best route for your business. More importantly, a company law firm can help you interpret the new rules that came into force from 1 October 2009 as part of the new Companies Act 2006. Your business must fully comply with these new regulations or face heavy fines. If you are in any doubt about your company formation, contact a company law firm for advice.
Once your new business is set up, your company law firm can then help with a range of other services. Depending on the business sector you are trading within, a company law firm can help with:
- Contract negotiations
- Intellectual property disputes
- Taxation issues
- Employment law
- Environmental law
As some areas of business law can be highly complex - employment and intellectual property law are good examples - using a company law firm will ensure your business is always trading within the current laws and regulations that govern your industry. Having a company law firm available to your business can be a great asset.
