Whatever your business sector—UK real estate, IT, insurance, logistics or something else entirely, you will find this to be a worthwhile read. Learn about government grants, guidance and other support schemes in place to foster the growth and prosperity of business in the United Kingdom. Most of the factors that will determine your future success depend on you—have you done your homework and due diligence?

Have you laid the groundwork for business contacts, conducive to growth? And so on, however, despite all the meticulous planning,  ‘curve balls’ and upsets are not uncommon when embarking on a new venture and some of the resultant difficulties of these unwelcome surprises can lead straight to financial ruin. Try as we might to foresee everything, many factors elude our imagination or just plainly remain beyond our control. To help safeguard your young company from financial and legal uncertainty, the government has set up numerous programmes to help counsel and ease your company’s growth pains. Enjoy!
