Briefing papers: business planning and legal structures

The music education sector is a diverse mix of freelancers, charities, statutory bodies and everything in between. But how do you know if you and your work is set up the best way and is planning ahead? A business plan and a legal structure are the key tools you need but for most of us this is an unknown world.

Don’t worry, Sound Connections can help! Our new briefing papers take you through all the different steps to writing your plan and how to use it as well as the pros and cons for different legal structures. We make sense of some of the language and signpost you to where you can get more support to ensure that you are on the right track.
