Extracts from this document...


Introduction I am planning to open an Italian restaurant which will be located in Ilford. The business will be owned and operated by me. My goals are to combine my skills in developing an up market, price competitive restaurant catering for 18 - 35 year old males and females. The restaurant will be focused on meeting customer's needs, which will ensure steady repeat and referral of the business. In my first year of business, I will work on a rented building. There are many reasons why I am opening my own business. Starting with the fundamentals, I have a strong belief that to be in business you need to have a passion and interest, which can be translated into commitment and dedication to the success of the business. My primary reasons for starting my own business are: * To be my own boss and take full responsibilities for my decisions * To support my lifestyle financially * To be challenged in the work place and build a successful business I can take pride in * To provide a quality service to my existing and new clientele in a relaxing environment Sole Trader Sole trader is a person who sets up a business by themselves. As a Sole trader the owner himself is responsible for every action made and also keeps all of the profit. This could be a newsagent's shop, for example. Individuals, who provide a specialist service like hairdressers, plumbers or photographers, are also sole traders. Sole traders do not have a separate legal existence. As a result, the owners are personally liable for the firm's debts, and may have to pay them out of their own pocket. Advantages of Sole Trader * The business is to be set up. Apart from any necessary licenses or planning permission, there are very few legal formalities. * Although accounts are seen by the Inland Revenue, they do not have to be made public. ...read more.

what the law is and how the OFT will apply it * help raise consumer awareness and confidence * co-ordinate activities with our enforcement partners locally, nationally and internationally * provide advice to government on the creation of a climate that favours both consumers and competition. In addition, to advise on the impact of prospective legislation on competition. Employment Law Discrimination Discrimination against any employees on any grounds other than their ability to do the job is a bad idea and could also be illegal. If an employee or potential employee brings a discrimination case against your business, you could be tied up in costly, time-consuming and unproductive legalities for months. If they win, you could be liable for unlimited damages. Employing overseas workers Due to an ongoing skills shortage in the UK, a growing number of small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) are recruiting overseas workers in order to fill key positions. However, while nationals from within the European Economic Area (EAA) can work freely in the UK, there are certain restrictions when it comes to employing workers from outside of this region. Unfortunately, some employers are unaware of these restrictions and may be unwittingly breaking the law. With further changes in legislation coming into effect over the next few months, it's more important than ever those employers know how to protect themselves when recruiting staff from outside of the EEA. Employment contracts A contract of employment exists as soon as an applicant accepts your offer of employment. A clear, reasonable contract helps you to ensure that the employee understands what is expected, and to minimize the risk of disputes. At the same time, you need to understand what your contractual obligations are, and what terms you can (and cannot) enforce. The basics of employment contracts A job applicant has a contract of employment as soon as your offer of employment is accepted. A contract exists, regardless of whether anything is in writing. * The written statement provides evidence of the contractual terms. ...read more.
