Pre Trading

There are so many important issues for new businesses to tackle even before they commence trading it is almost inevitable that something will be overlooked which will mean an opportunity missed or a problem stored for the future.

Being aware of issues and addressing them at the outset can enhance both the security and profitability of the business going forward.



What is a Trademark?
A trademark is a sign which identifies the products or services of a business and, may consist of words, slogans, musical compositions, logos, shapes, numerals, colours or any combination of these. It can also include sounds or even smells. In fact a trade mark can be anything, which distinguishes your business from those of other traders.
