I decided to go to my mum as she owns a business and ask her what will be needed to run a business, including all the technical and legally aspects. Things that I might not be able to find online whilst researching. Although she is a Sole Trader, therefore she said that some things won't apply for me as our business will be a Private Limited Company. I decided to take notes on the things needed, and will do more research after to find out more specifically for a PLC.
