Starting a personal training business is a very exciting prospect, but one that needs to be managed with care to ensure that your business is structured correctly and becomes a success.

There are many things that need to be considered, such as:

  • Business planning
  • Obtaining finance
  • Choosing the best business structure
  • When to set up a company
  • Using trusts
  • Business registrations
  • Taxation obligations
  • Legal requirements
  • Insurance
  • How to pay yourself
  • Separating personal and business expenditure
  • Employing staff
  • Employer obligations
