I'm thinking about opening an online shop, what do I need to do to protect my business?

There is a significant investment in trading online so it’s prudent to make efficient sales to maximise the return on investment.

Your terms of business are crucially important. This means they need to be clear, enforceable and don’t leave room for things to come back to bite you.

There are legal requirements including:

  • information you need to put on your website;
  • consumer protection legislation (if you are selling to non-business customers);
  • industry specific requirements; and
  • data protection and privacy considerations.

It is also worth remembering that scrutinising a website is easy for regulators such as:

  • Local Authority Regulatory Services (Environmental Health, Trading Standards and Licensing);
  • The Competition and Markets Authority;
  • The Advertising Standards Authority; and
  • The Information Commissioners Office.

If you need any help then please take a look at our solutions  or get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Feedback from Kim Way, Managing Director Changes Clinic

“Crimson Crab was recommended to me by a business colleague when we were recently faced with the task of completing registration for the Care Quality Commission.  Being a new business, only 6 weeks into our trading, we needed a strong structure on which to base our quality systems and processes.  Not only did Rob give us the structure, methodology and detail we needed to get through registration, he has enabled us to begin trading with a comprehensive quality management system which we will continue to build on.  He is patient, supportive and thorough and I would have no hesitation in seeking support from Rob again.”
