One of the great attractions of a Forces career is that (along with travel, adventure, comradeship and everything else) it offers outstanding opportunities to gain skills and qualifications.
While your military CV can be your ticket to a good civilian job, you might decide to use your training and experience to set up in business yourself when you leave. Your resettlement grant, which you receive if you’ve served at least 12 years, can provide the cash you need to get started – but only after taking proper professional advice.
At Forces Law, we’ve worked with people from across the ranks in all three services, helping them make informed decisions about setting up and running their new civilian business. Many of our lawyers are former Service people themselves, so have a unique understanding of the risks and rewards.
Whatever kind of business you’re planning, we can advise on everything from company structure, customer and supplier contracts and employing staff to acquiring premises and dealing with bad debts.
As a first step, you can book a FREE 30-minute interview to talk through your ideas and options, and get some initial advice from one of our experienced lawyers. Whether you’re still serving, preparing to leave, or you’ve already received your resettlement grant, please call our helpline on 0845 601 1260 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
