When establishing a new business, it can be easy to get caught up in the great products and services your new venture intends to provide. However, choosing the most appropriate business structure is essential, too, as it can help support your ambitions and reduce potential legal issues. 

In England, business owners have several options to consider, depending on what best suits their circumstances. For instance, your business entity could be:

  • an unincorporated business, such as a sole trader or partnership; or
  • an incorporated business, such as a private limited company or a limited liability partnership.

Different business structuring offers different benefits. For example, an unincorporated partnership structure may provide low ongoing costs and setup for your business. In contrast, a company structure will separate your company assets from your personal assets, reducing your personal liability and risk.

Regardless, it is prudent to engage expert legal advice to identify which structure will best suit you and your business’ needs.
