You can start trading,
But you cannot charge or claim VAT
unless you are VAT registered.



(To find out if you need to be VAT registered click here.)



When you start trading you will accumulate information about your customers.
It is worth investigating your legal responsibilities with regard
to the handling of this data.

Seek advice from the Information Commissioner's Office
('the old Data Protection Agency')
to discover whether you are required
to be registered with them.


Well that's it, really!
There's plenty more to learn, and we have by no means given
you all the information.
We hope to have pointed you in the
right direction, at least, where we lacked substance.
Goodbye and jolly good luck to you!

P.S. If you want to help us continue
helping others, then please
