Our story and people

Our Story

At Lightwork Business our purpose is simple. By making 'light work' of your business needs we aim to save new and growing businesses time and make it easier for people to establish and run their companies. 

This is based on the premise that we know sorting out the fundamentals to get a company up and running isn’t what people go into business for – their business idea is.

As a result we simply want to provide answers to the common business questions small businesses face to enable them to get the legal, financial and administrative basics of running a company - the Basics of Business - right from day 1!

Whether you currently only have an idea for your new company or are already running your small business there is something here for you.
