Guest Speaker confirmed for Start-up Seminar at March Office

22nd November 2018

Our March office will be hosting its start-up seminar on 29 November 2018 between 6pm and 8pm.

The evening will aim to cover the following key areas for those starting out in business:

  • Choice of business structure
  • Record keeping, including digital software packages
  • Compliance with HMRC regulations
  • Funding options
  • Employment issues

We are delighted to announce that our guest speaker on the night will be Emilia Cybulska, a Business Growth Enabler from NatWest Bank.  Emilia will cover the basics of a business plan, budgeting and cash flow, and financing options for your business.  Emilia has commented that:

“When NatWest did some research into entrepreneurship it suggested that 46% of people would rather be their own boss – but that just 38% knew where to start.  While every business is different there are some things that all would-be entrepreneurs need to make sure they’ve ticked off the list.”

Our seminar aims to “tick off” some of the questions that start-up businesses often have.

So if you are starting out in business, we hope to see you at our seminar later this month.  To book your free place, please contact Victoria Stokes on 01284 752313 or e-mail victoriastokes@whitingandpartners.co.uk
