Starting up a Consulting Business

This is a well trod path for individuals who want to start their own business having spent several years (maybe many years) performing their professional activities for a previous employer.  Occasionally, individuals want to start their business in Consulting straight away - simply because they can - and they have the capability - and they can find a customer or two, quickly. 

Generally starting your business from home is quickest - but beware, as HMRC expect you to have an office.
        If you need software to start to run your business from home or startup from an office - you are in the right place.
                BusinessGT has the software you need.

The key essential things you need as you set up your consulting business are these:
  • Produce your forecast - and arrange your funding appropriately. 
  • Monitor your Actual results against Forecast - In Business GT this is automatic.
  • Get a website - you have a default site with BusinessGT. If you want a fully designed site, call us for more information. 
  • Get a business email account. You won't be taken very seriously with a Gmail or Yahoo! email address.
  • Make sure you can raise Sales Invoice in your startup business. Easy in BusinessGT.
  • Have a system to track your sales conversations, so you don't forget anything. 
  • Check you can update your web site really easily, immediately.
