The activities and structure of your business will affect what is required of you from a tax point of view.
For example, if you are a limited company, then you will need to make allowances for corporation tax or, if you are a sole trader, then income tax will apply to you. The York & North Yorkshire Growth Hub can also assist with questions around VAT registration and National Insurance obligations.
In addition to tax, there may also be regulations that you need to consider to ensure that you keep on the right side of the law. From health and safety to licencing and data management, we can help you understand what you need and provide details of where you can keep up to date with changes to legislation.
We can help with:
- Business legislation
- If you need help understanding business regulations, or you’re a small business navigating the legal system, we can provide free business legal advice.
- VAT advice
- Advice on VAT schemes and regulations for starting, growing, and scaling businesses. We can also advise on National Insurance contributions.
- Health and safety
- Depending on your business, you may have a variety of health and safety requirements. We can help you to understand health and safety legislation applicable to your business.
