Legally, your business is going to have to deal with HMRC. It is known for handling taxes, but it also has a lot of really business advice on the gov.uk website, including videos, webinars and newsletters. This makes it really easy to find out exactly what information you need to give them, as well as handy ways for you to get money back from Government.
So, whether you are setting up, changing the structure of your business, trying to make sure you pay only as much tax as you need to, or taking on staff, HMRC help by creating online resources so that you can do it all legally.
