Have you been contemplating starting your own business venture or stepping out as a self-employed professional? If the worries of getting your head around the financial aspect of going it alone is what’s putting you off, this Small Business Finance course is exactly what you need.

This course has been specifically designed to provide ongoing support to anyone who is self-employed, works as a freelancer or is thinking of starting their own business.

It will help you get started and also act as a resource you can revert to for guidance as your business venture grows.

By studying this course, you will learn how to avoid the issues that often lead to business failure. You will explore everything that’s required to set up a business, from how it should be structured to tax liabilities, budgeting and reporting, fundraising and more.

A huge benefit of the course is that it’s also been created in a way that’s easy to understand, so you won’t be overwhelmed by jargon and can take charge of your future with confidence.

The course starts by helping you decide the best business structure for you and then progresses to cover areas you are guaranteed to face as your venture evolves.

This includes detailed advice on:

  • Filing your annual tax returns
  • Creating a budget
  • Forecasting
  • Deciding whether to take dividends or a salary
  • How to raise investment to grow your business

Plus, so much more. The course has also been created in collaboration with Chartered Accountants and Business Directors, who understand what is important and not so important when first starting a business.
