running When you are running a business but not at any of the other stages it means you are not looking to grow your number of employees, you are making a profit and not looking to expand or grow your business significantly in the next two or three years. There is no timeframe for this type of business, you could have been running for anything from 1 to 40 years! We can keep you on the straight and narrow with HMRC & Companies House but you wouldn’t usually need any of the additional support packages that we provide.
