BRANCHING OUT

HOW DOES RECRUITMENT WORK?

You can use professional recruiters, but this can be costly and there are free means to advertise vacancies, such as the Government's Universal Jobmatch platform and websites including Gumtree.

WHAT ARE MY OBLIGATIONS TO EMPLOYEES?

When you take on staff for the first time, there are a variety of requirements you must fulfill, from registering as an employer with HMRC to obtaining employers' liability insurance. You must also pay the National Minimum Wage. A full list of obligations can be found at: www.gov.uk/employing-staff.

WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO MOVE TO AN OFFICE?

There is no fixed point at which you should move into a business office rental space. You should try and identify when your business has reached a tipping point. If your home business office is stopping you from doing anything, it is probably time to make the move.

CAN I MOVE MY BUSINESS OUT OF MY HOME WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK?

There are a range of options for home businesses looking to move into an office environment. A serviced office arrangement will allow you to take the space and services you need, while shared workspaces are often a suitable solution to keep costs down. In some areas it is possible to rent space in Government buildings for free: www.gov.uk/rent-government-workspace.
