Are you ready to register your business, or become a sole trader? Whatever type of business you’re starting, this FREE valuable business registration workshop will help you to understand what is involved in registration and get your questions answered. The workshop covers what you need to know about registering your business, and will provide you with key tips on managing your cash,  tax, and getting your head around accounting.

It won’t answer all your questions, but it will help you know which ones to ask! These sessions will be informal, and you will be encouraged to interrupt with any questions you may have.

Who’s delivering this course?

Charles Dodwell, an experienced Director with a history of working in the financial services industry. Since selling his family business in 2000, Charles has been spending time helping people start their own enterprise, beginning with an ethical loan fund in Gloucester, and most recently working with the Princes Trust, before joining The University of Gloucester on the Start and Grow Enterprise programme.


Over that time, he has seen almost every kind of business there is, from partial denture manufacturing to Zoo design! Whatever your business model, many of the questions and hurdles remain the same.


Where is it held?

This event is held at The Growth Hub in Gloucester; a centre of support and learning for growing businesses. Parking is available on-site for £2.50 for the day by card. Refreshments are provided, and lunch can be purchased from the on-site cafe.
