Registering your business could broaden your potential client and supplier base, because many customers and suppliers prefer to deal with a Company as opposed to an individual.

If you’ve decided a company structure is right for your business, you’ll need to register it as a company. When you set up a company, you create a legal entity with its own legal obligations that is  separate from you.

A company has different legal, financial and record keeping responsibilities compared to other business structures, so it’s important you know what’s involved and you choose the right type of company for your business needs.
