What one top tip would you give to a business owner embarking on a growth plan?
When a business has more than one shareholder, it is critically important that you have a Shareholders Agreement recording all the terms you have agreed and what happens if you fall out. We often see many good businesses being held back by a shareholder dispute which could have been resolved with a robust agreement in place at the outset.
Why is Lancashire a great place to grow a business?
Lancashire is one of the best places to do business in the country. We have a world-class manufacturing base, a talented and diverse work-force and a great work ethic.
