Running a business can be tough, and it’s always good to know where to go when you need to seek advice.
We’ve put together a list of resources for small businesses of websites and organisations who’ll point you in the right direction when you need a helping hand
If you’re looking for a range of advice for your small business or startup, or even if you’re just in the planning phase, gov.uk has a range of resources.
You can find advice on writing a business plan, financial advice and support, and links to the various schemes the government runs.
Another company on hand to offer a range of advice is Startup Britain, a ‘national campaign by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs’.
As well as offering various blogs, articles, and advice, they help businesses find local support and easily identify nearby events via an interactive map.
Most small businesses don’t have the money - or the need - for an actual HR department, but if you’re ready to start taking on employees, HR advice can be invaluable.
Human Resource Solutions offer professional advice to small business, as well as free white papers and procedural advice.
Although the name ‘HMRC’ tends to make most small business owners groan, they really are the experts when it comes to issues of British tax.
On their website you can find all the information you need to set up and manage your business finances, including corporation tax and import/export fees.
Sometimes, reading an article or looking at a document is not enough, and you need more hands-on help.
Mentorsme is an online gateway for businesses to seek out appropriate mentors. As well as mentoring, they host events and have their own compilation of small business resources.
