Starting a business
What do I need to start?
The first steps towards your new business are often the biggest.
It’s the preparation you do and decisions you make here, which will set you on the road to success.
Financing your idea
It pays to be across the up-front costs you’ll face, especially for new vehicles, machinery or equipment.
Managing your banking and payments
Cash is the lifeblood of any business and it needs to flow easily in and out of your business.
Customers and suppliers should also find it easy to work with you.
