Business Advice

New Businesses

If you are starting a new business venture in Medway then you want to make sure that you have got everything covered.  Medway Council's trading standards team are here to help you to get everything right the first time round, by giving you comprehensive advice on trading law.

We have dedicated advice and enforcement staff that are on hand five days a week to give you assistance in interpreting the law that applies to your business.  If we can't help you, then we will refer you to the appropriate source of information.  Advice can be given over the telephone, by letter, email or alternatively, by a personal visit.

Our advice service is completely free to Medway businesses, and operates between to hours of 8:30am to 5:15pm Monday to Thursday and 8:30am to 4:45pm on Friday.  We stock a large range of fact sheets and guidance booklets which are designed to minimise the impact of changes in legislation whilst still ensuring compliance.
