All answers for small businessess (I have been running a few for 15 years)
Corporate Tax - You can dodge it
Bank Overdraft - Try not to have one, if you need it you use as little as possible as a business is only a business if it makes money
Rent in a Shopping Mall/Centre - If you need a shop pay, but there might be a cheaper way
Accountancy costs - Save me twice what you cost me, or Ill fill the forms in myself.
ALL POINTS BELOW, AS YOU ARE SMALL - YOU ARE UNDER THE RADAR, SO THEY DONT REALLY APPLY, BUT:
Race Relations Act 1992 - If you want discriminate, you can use another "reason" - no real issue
Sex Discrimination Act 1975/97 - Same
Equal Pay Act 1970 - Only a problem if your a bad manager and someone takes the time to work out whats what
Disability Discrimination Act 1995/2005 - toughy, as a small business you have to find the best people...but again..as your small, under the radar
National Minimum Wage - bigger risk when starting, but makes you do your homework on what you can afford
Data Protection Act 1998 - hmm...cant think of an answer, but just dont lose data and no problem

The financial crisis – The small business view
As a result of the financial crisis small businesses have found themselves at the eye of the perfect storm. Caught
between contracting markets, late payments, increasing overheads and a sharp decline in access to finance, many viable
small businesses have failed. According to the accountancy firm BDO Stoy-Haywood, an estimated 120 small
businesses were closing daily at the height of the financial crisis.
The three most crucial impacts of the financial crisis have been: decrease in trade, an increase in late payment and an
increased difficulty in accessing finance.
Decrease in trade
Perhaps the most obvious impact of the financial crisis was a decrease in trade. With less money in the economy and
businesses and consumers tightening their belts, small businesses experienced a steep decline in trade up to the end of
2008, fortunately this decline slowly eased as we approached the end of 2009.
