Incorporating your Practice
Date 07/11/2013
Speaker April Bingham (Head of Corporate, Bellwether Green) & Mark Barry (Associate Director, Haines Watts)
Seminar Details There are compelling reasons to make the move from a sole trader or partnership model to incorporation. However, the process of doing so may seem like such an arduous task that it languishes at the bottom of the ‘to do’ list or endlessly re-appears on partnership agendas. Whilst, the process can be made relatively painless with a bit of planning and co-ordinated execution, there are risks in proceeding without addressing some of the fundamental changes and technical matters that go with the transfer of a regulated business. This seminar therefore aims to highlight some of the choices available when considering incorporation, to look at the necessary process and steer, those considering this option, away from potential pitfalls.

At the seminar we will discuss:-
· reasons to consider incorporation
· choice of incorporated entity
· tax and financial implications
· the necessary documentation
· the Law Society of Scotland’s requirements
· practical issues
