“Advice around the structure of your enterprise in its early days is imperative – it can have a very negative impact later on if it’s not structured properly. The wise heads at Perks, who have assisted literally thousands of SME businesses over 30 years, will have advice that will inevitably provide a greater chance of success and prosperity over your Business journey”
