Ok here goes guys,
I am hoping to get my company finally off the ground in July. Warrior-Pig Web Design will be aiming at the young people market with the lowest prices for web design, hosting, domians etc possible. I also do flash too.

What i need help with is the legal side of things. What tax do I have to pay and what is the ammount of money i have to have to start paying it on? What other legal things can disrupt it?

Also, anyone know of a website in which I can design some simple business cards that i can print off until I find a good company who can do me a load at a good price?

Many thanks in advance

Don't even worry about tax unless your gonna make 56k a year which i very much doubt you will for some time.

Second Try http://www.vistaprint.com for business cards There Cheap.

Why not print your own buy the blanks from Office World or a stationary shop. I am guessing you have a decent printer and a copy of MS Publisher as your a designer .

I use www.laserclarity.com.

You design the card online and even upload your logo. Mine came back in a couple of days.

Excellent Service and ideal for small quantities as they have prices that go from 50 cards - where as large Printing companies prefer to quote for large quantities.

I think you'll find it's about 4,650 (Can't remember the exact figure) ...not 56k... Your talking about being VAT registered which is something to think about in future..

You will need to register as Self-Employed and pay the correct taxes.

Take a look over at the HM Revenue & Customs website

All the best

Martin's advice is spot on. I'd also recommend taking a look at Business Link's 'No Nonsense Guide':

As a webby you will also want to get all yourt contract in place for dealing with clients. Have a look at www.proposalkit.com as it not only give you all the necessary legal docs you can adapt but you can also create very effective proposals with it.

I would gues that using this kit has helped me win about 60% of the jobs I go for simply as it looks so professional and convers everything you need...

Jnewman you are a very thorough person, you must have read the whole forum!

Anyone fancy a reunion of the old faces? Statler could you stick a oner in the kitty to kick things off?
