Setting up a Business is expensive and being careful with costs, goes without saying. When you’re wanting to get on with your marketing budget or furnishing a new office, legal costs can seem to drain the bank account quickly and it’s tempting to try and make quick savings in this area.
It is hardly surprising that a large percentage of fledgeling businesses are tempted by, and possibly indulge in some of those free business templates that can be found all over the internet. A quick Google search and you have a seemingly unlimited supply of free documents.
You’re saving money already! But are you really?
Free business templates can end up being expensive.
Free templates can certainly give the illusion of money-saving and will give you a general idea of what your business needs in terms of wording. What they will NOT give you is a legally binding document that you can trust to your business.
Free templates also tend to be generalised. They cover as many different business scenarios as possible. There can never really be a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to your business legals, nor should there be!
Some templates are aimed at the US market
Can you be absolutely sure that your free document is even suitable for the UK? Quite a few I have read seem to be sourced from the USA and although they ‘sound’ legal they actually make little sense here in the UK.
Complex business arrangements, such as shareholder agreements and their associated paperwork and procedures, will often be very unique to the business they are written for. Getting them right first time is absolutely critical. Is it really worth the risk?
We provide Business templates from just £5
We offer a select range of business legal agreements to purchase and download that are continually approved and maintained by UK legal and business professionals. Some of which can be bought for as little as just £5.
Each document has been written and meticulously checked and re-checked to ensure they cover your business. They are also very easy to understand and user-friendly! You can pre-order them and receive them within 2 business days. This is because we check their status again each time prior to sending them to you.
Also, unlike other online companies, we don’t use or promote external sites – all of our content is created by us, for you!
We also provide additional services:
these exist solely to provide you a smooth, easy and affordable experience to getting your legals right.
When it comes to your business, think carefully about the risks you are taking. It simply isn’t worth putting your entire business at risk to save a few pounds here and there.
Your time is priceless and so is your peace of mind.
