Launching a business from home

Organiser: North East BIC

Starting Your Business Workshops

Our business advisers have helped hundreds of people across the North East set up successful businesses from home.

Delivered via Zoom, the workshop is for people interested in setting up a business and wanting to ensure they take all the necessary steps to ensure their journey to self-sufficiency is above board and as seamless as possible.

Each of the informal Flying Start sessions are hosted by one of our in-house experts and give you the opportunity to ask all the pressing questions you have, while drawing on the thoughts and experiences of others also considering the move into self-employment.

What you’ll learn

  • Whether you can legally run your business from home
  • How working from home could improve your work-life balance
  • If hybrid working could perhaps provide you with the best of both worlds


This workshop is for anyone with the gem of a business idea or those who have begun researching their idea without taking any further steps to making it a reality.

The workshop is for those living in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, Durham or Northumberland and haven’t yet registered as self-employed with HMRC.
