In order to make your business a success there are a number of key factors which you should consider.

  • Commitment – starting a business is demanding, determination and enthusiasm are essential

  • Skills – You will need managerial, financial, technical and marketing skills

  • Market place  – your product or service must have a proven or tested market

  • Advise you on issues in connection with VAT and whether you need to be registered
