staring a business

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone tell me about business advice. I don't want to buy a franchise; I'd like to go it alone with some specialist help.
    I believe there are some organisations in London but don't know who they are

    Why would you stare at a business??????????
  3. There is a lot of help about and some of it is even worth having but beware of politicians bearing gifts.

    The DTI via BusinessLink offers some assistance but beware, I have been right royally shafted :x and I am not alone. There is also a lot of training available but the quality, together with the price is highly variable. Unusually the free stuff can be worth having and the paid stuff is usually sh1t.

    Can you give me a clue about what you want to do and I'll try to make a reply more personally applicable. Your local bank and the Federation of Small Business may be a good place to start.
  4. Since posting my question two days ago, I have found a company in London who are expereinced and helpful and have been able to point me in the right direction.

    I would be happy to pass on their details if any one else wants to know
