Set up right, start as you mean to go on

Remember when you dreamed about starting your own small business? The freedom, the satisfaction … all the tasks you needed to complete to set up and run your business. Ok, maybe you didn’t dream about that bit. But getting your business set up right from the start doesn’t have to be time consuming, costly or a challenge.

Get set up right

Afirmo’s setup wizard brings together all the tools, solutions and support to make setting up your business easier, so you can get on with making your small business dreams come true and delivering for your customers.

Whether you’re starting out for the first time, or a more experienced small business owner, we’ll guide you through all the easy-to-follow steps you need to take to get set up quickly and correctly, as and when you need them. And because we bring all the setup tasks into one place you don’t have to jump from website to website to find out what you need to do.

Everything in one place

We know it’s tempting to write down key business information on whatever piece of paper is sitting on your desk at the time. And we know how hard it is to find that piece of paper when you need it. Store your critical business information in the secure Afirmo dashboard so it’s accessible at a glance. And if you’ve already completed some set up tasks you can import data into your profile at the click of a button.

Afirmo’s setup wizard gives you the confidence that your business is set up right, you’re meeting all regulatory requirements, and your business journey is on the right path.
