SSDC offices, Churchfields, Wincanton

In conjunction with Somerset Business Agency, South Somerset District Council is hosting a free business start-up awareness session in Wincanton on Wednesday 22nd July, at the SSDC offices, Churchfields, BA9 9AG.

The free session may be for you if you are thinking of starting a business and need some help and advice. It will include the very basics about choosing the right legal status, regulations and licensing requirements, costs of starting up, business planning, cash flow, tax, National Insurance and VAT.

Finding customers and knowing your market is really important for any new business so some of the morning will also be spent introducing sales and marketing. This will include a simple overview of market research, competition, advertising/promotion, choosing a name and customer care.

The session will run from 9.00am to 12.30pm. To book simply call 01458 254331 or email . You can also book online at

The Area East Committee is keen to support local businesses and in particular new businesses; we are pleased to be able to host this free session locally in Wincanton and I would encourage people reading this article to let anyone they know who is interested in starting a business about this event.

- Councillor Nick Weeks, South Somerset District Council’s Area East Committee Chairman

This looks like it'll be a great opportunity, a useful session, so I'm very sorry it's up with so little notice. Entirely my fault :(
