New Business start-up sessions prove popular

Budding entrepreneurs among Forth Valley College’s students with dreams of starting their own company, attended an informative Business Start-Up Awareness Seminar at the Alloa Campus on Tuesday 6 February (from 4-6pm).

Business Gateway Clackmannanshire organised the event and called for all prospective Michelle Mones or Richard Bransons to get involved and get their business plans on track.

Those who wanted to be a cut above the rest with their own hairdressing shop, tap into their creativity with an arts and crafts enterprise or sell the best Scottish Tapas from a quirky burger van of their very own – made sure they made it along to this seminar.

FVC student Martin Casey (34) who is studying for an NQ Health and Wellbeing (pictured here) hopes the seminar will help him start-up a mobile personal training business.

This concise workshop covered the fundamentals anyone needs to know when starting up a new business such as:

  • Your business idea
  • Starting a business
  • Forming a business
  • Business name
  • Income tax & NI
  • VAT
  • Record Keeping

Also covered t the event was the additional FREE Business Gateway services available from the local office in Alloa, plus info on the national enquiry service and research team.
