When you're running a growing business there are many aspects where you must remain "on the ball". I expect you already know about the changes to pension legislation - but did you know there are government funds available for co-investment to support your businesses growth plans?
As a sole trader there are challenges in business - typically the lurch between doing" work, then finding "new work", and of course ensuring in the background that clients are invoiced and payments are followed up. However a business with several employees has its own challenges: at a "people" level these might include: how to delegate effectively, and how to ensure that others can follow your requests for work. There are of course challenges around recruitment and retention - how to attract the most appropriate people to your business and how to ensure that you keep the right people. Often the growth phase of a business has particular cash flow challenges - with more cash going out of the business before it "pays back" - so there can be challenges around financing your business growth plans.
