Business Start-ups

Starting up a new business venture can be an exciting and challenging time for any business person. If you have a business idea and are at the early stages of putting your plans into action we can make you aware of any legal considerations you require to take as very few kinds of business are free from legal considerations. Within our Commercial Department at McSherry Halliday, our commercial lawyers regularly advise business owners and company directors on the setting up their business. The first concern you may have is whether you will run the small business in your own name, a partnership, a limited liability partnership or a limited company. There are tax considerations and liability implications which differ dependent on the business model.

You must also consider the best location from which your business will operate. You may wish to look into whether it would be more suitable for you to lease or purchase premises. This may be dependant on your finances and any costs involved in repairing and maintaining the building. Additionally as we offer Financial Services advice we can guide you through the whole process and provide you with assistance on how to raise finance to give your business an initial cash injection.

We can give advice on Securities you may wish to grant, personal loans or guarantees and any investment or contributions by individuals to the business.

Every new start business is unique and therefore we understand it is important to tailor our legal and financial advice to meet the needs and requirements of the business and client involved. By ensuring your business is set up correctly we can take the stress and strain away from you by dealing with any legal issues which may arise and leave you to focus on driving the business forward. We will be on hand to assist you with any legal issues or hurdles you may be faced with along the way.

With offices in Kilmarnock, Irvine and Troon, we can help business clients all over Ayrshire and across Scotland and currently serve clients in Ayr, Troon, Arran, Kilwinning, Saltcoats, Dalry, Ardrossan, Prestwick, Stewarton and Fenwick.
