Start a part-time business



Starting a business, although highly exciting, is a big step to take. Sometimes before you take the plunge into full-time business ownership, it might be better and easier to think about doing it on a part-time basis, as a way of ensuring the business idea will work.

If you are employed part-time, or have young children and do not want, or are not in a position, to give up the time necessary to run a full-time business, a part-time business may be a good option for you.

This guide looks at the practical issues you will face when you run a part-time business, including tax and legal implications of a part-time business. It also highlights the advantages and disadvantages of starting a part-time business and provides information on local support for part-time businesses.
