Start ups must get it right from the start

WHEN setting up in business it is important to consider implications of the company’s legal structure at the outset. Companies should seek help with the decision making process, the company name, its memorandum and articles, directors and share capital.

Standard terms and conditions of sale or supply are the contract between the business and its customers. They set down agreed service levels and are designed to protect the business’s rights and limit its liabilities, they can help avoid disputes and as such are a core element of every company’s formalities.

Andrew Heeler, Partner and Head of Company Law at Hegarty LLP advises new business start ups: “By making sure your business is on a strong footing from the start you can avoid problems later on; having your company incorporated and a proper set of terms and conditions can help reduce the risks of trading. This is particularly pertinent in the current difficult economic climate.”
