Starting a business checklist
Use our helpful checklist to make sure you have done everything you need to with East Northamptonshire Council when starting your business
Whether you're starting up a dog grooming business or opening a bakery, East Northamptonshire Council has a wide range of services that are of use to someone just getting started. Some of these may be regulatory, which simply means you have to let us know you’re setting up a business, for example Business Rates or planning.
To help get you on the right path to setting up your business we've created a checklist. This includes all the services you need to talk to us about (i.e. food hygiene, licensing), as well as other organisations which can help with things like grants, training and networking opportunities. You may not need help and advice from all of them but a simple five minute phone conversation will mean you’re sure you have done all you need to in setting up your business.
East Northamptonshire Council is dedicated to supporting new businesses. Read about how local companies have been helped along the way.
Good luck with your business and thank you for choosing East Northamptonshire as a place to start and grow it.
