Michelmores launches Business Starter Packs

Michelmores has developed 'Business Starter Packs', specifically designed to provide starting or expanding businesses with their essential and basic legal documents, support and commercial advice. 

We recognise that many people start new businesses each year, from young entrepreneurs to businesses planning expansion. All need proper legal documents and advice, but low fixed price template packs from the internet are rarely good enough, and totally bespoke agreements can cost much more than a young business wants to spend. We aim to meet the demand from clients to bridge that gap with the new Business Starter Packs.

There are three fixed fee packages on offer, with the option to add on extras to create a tailored package to suit individual business needs. All involve the incorporation of a new limited company as a first step.

The Bronze package offers legal advice on company incorporation, guidance notes on matters relating to tax, real estate, website terms, employment, debt recovery, duties of directors amongst others and gives you contact introductions to recommended accountants, trademark agents and financiers. This package would suit start-ups looking for more advice and handholding than the typical "off the shelf" company formation agents.

The Silver package includes all services from the Bronze package plus additional features such as essential company secretary services for one year, templates for website 'terms of use' and 'privacy policy' and a 30-minute advice session from a specialist lawyer.

The Gold package features all services from the Bronze and Silver packages plus additional features such as one hour of tailored advice from one of Michelmores' lawyers in specialist areas of your choice such as: corporate, commercial, employment, tax or real estate. This package would suit a business that is looking to take its next step to grow and commercialise an established business concept.

Additional options can also be added to any package, for example a tailored shareholders' agreement and articles of association, advice regarding protection of intellectual property, an e-commerce package (which covers tailored online terms and conditions of sale, website terms of use, privacy policy and cookies policy) and supplier terms of business. These additional services may be purchased at reduced rates if bought within one year of subscription to the Business Starter Packs.
