Description

Everything you need to legally run an online company with limited liability status, for £99 or less INCLUDING the cost of this course.

Think you need a lawyer to start a business? Think again.

Think you need a lot of money? Think again.

This course will show you how to set up everything you need to run a Limited Company with your total investment of £99 or less. That’s not just the cost of the course, that’s the cost of everything you are going to need, including the cost of the course. In fact – you’ll get the cost of the course back, and maybe more, the second you set up a company bank account. Yes – I’ll show you how to even make money setting up your bank account.

The truth is that setting up a company legally, doesn’t have to be expensive. But it does need to be done right.

  • You'll find out how to protect yourself with limited liability.

  • You'll be able to afford to set up a professional website without using a web designer.

  • You'll get a UK company bank account set up in your company name (even if you are not in the UK)

  • You'll learn how to make an online store, or forum, or any other common website system without spending money

  • You'll be able to take Credit Card payments for your business online, including recurring payments

  • You will be able to decide whether you need to be registered under the data protection act (and how to do it without a lawyer)

You can do all of this without physically being in the UK (although UK residents will have a few extra options and will also beneft from this course).

I set up my first company straight out of university over 30 years ago and right at the start, I wanted to do it right. I wanted my business to have the Kudos and the protection of being a limited company, but I didn’t have the money to pay a lawyer or accountant to set it up for me. I had a degree in Maths and Management, but nobody had told me the basics!

I set that business up and I have been setting up companies and been running them ever since. My name is Dixon and I am an award-winning online entrepreneur. In 2012 I was the UK’s Search personality of the year. In 2014 I took an online business into the Deloitte Fast 50… making one of the fastest growing technology companies in the country. In 2016 AND in 2017 I went to Buckingham Palace after our business ideas won Queens Awards for innovation and for International export and in 2018 I won the UK Search Awards first-ever Lifetime Achievement award.

I also have an MBA in Business Administration with a specialism in strategic management and I can tell you this… the people that succeed in business are the people that risk the first step! We all dream up ideas in the pub, but very few of us ever carry them through. One of the main reasons for this is fear… fear of failure, yes, but also a fear of the unknown. People don’t know what to do and they are scared that they’ll break a law or get laughed. This course will reduce that fear.

Come with me and cover all the things you need to know to get up and trading. Of course, later in your business career, you may need lawyers, or accountants, or possibly government certification or regulation… but not everything needs these things. Get started and then I’ll point you in the right direction when you are ready. For now, you need to know the drill. Know that the men in suits can’t beat you into submission or put you off. You are the future and if you want to start a business, I’m going to show you how.

1 lecture 12:51

The UK uses a tax called "Value Added Tax" or "VAT" instead of "Sales Tax". Small businesses do not HAVE to be registered unless their annual turnover has reached £85,000 per annum. In this module you will find out why many small businesses DO register before they reach this threshold. Choosing whether to register or not for VAT is an important decision for any small business.
