In order to help you formulate a realistic 'plan of action' we have compiled a flow chart which outlines the order of events that occur during the business start-up process. This guide aims to supply the budding entrepreneur with advice on :


  • the various opportunities available and the differences between them,

  • the decisions that have to be made and when to decide them,

  • the chain of events that lead to the start of trading,

  • the organisations that need to be informed, and how and when to inform them,

  • the professional services required and when to seek them.

  • the problems that may occur and how to deal with them.
