You can set up a company if you want but generally it probably wont make that much difference.

Firstly, suppliers like to have a credit history on your company for favourable pricing etc. They could also look you up on companies house and realise that you haven't done anything.

All i'm saying is save the money and hassle and speak to suppliers in the time between now and then to build a relationship.

That has a much better chance of working.

Just my opinion as every market is different.

I set up in this way, however, come year end, my accontants asked me to stump up for the first 6 months fees.

I am not sure if this is standard for accountants, however, they said I had to pay for the full years service, even though for 6 months I did not use them. (I should have read the T&C's a little closer).

That said, having everything in place made it easier once I started trading.

You can register as a dormant company first. With this, you reserve the name for your company. It may also help you when you want to apply for a merchant account. The only hassle is you still need to prepare profit and loss account.
