Having secured a contract and now just seeking closure on all ‘open’ opportunities, a Ltd company is needed to progress. Having picked the name ‘Virtual Earthrunner IT’ a few weeks back it was an easy task of completing the accountancy application forms where the company will be set-up in the process. I already have a logo design and business cards set-up so once a bank account is in place (also set-up by the accountants) I’ll be acquiring these low cost extras. I’ve opted to start life as a Ltd company owner using Nixon Williams as my accountants. They seem to offer a good service for £95+VAT per month and I’ve opted to use their address as the main company address (as advised by several website on the subject), at an additional cost of £5+VAT. There is no contractual tie-in so I’m free to switch accounts at a later date if necessary but I’m going to leave things as they are until I get settled and get my head around it all.
Here’s hoping for a long and prosperous career as a business owner and contractor/consultant.
