Practical support for start up businesses in Renfrewshire is provided through the Council’s Business Gateway service. Businesses are allocated a personal Business Adviser to help develop a business plan and financial projections. The adviser will also explain the practical steps to setting up a business (e.g. business registration, insurance, tax, VAT, National Insurance etc) and help to identify potential sources of funding to get the business up and running.
The Business Gateway Renfrewshire website provides free business information, business guides and details of training courses and events.
