Our Brand Story
The original company, National Business Register, was founded in 1984 aiming to assist businesses with name protection, company formation, registered design, and trade mark services. Our highly qualified team members have over 37 years of experience in their specialist areas.
The new brand, Start.biz, was founded in 2020 when the company was acquired by Matthew Cusack and Bevan Edwards. Start.biz provides a comprehensive set of professional services to aspiring and existing business owners. To complement our in-house Compliance, Intellectual Property (IP) protection and Access to Finance offerings, we have built a trusted network with our accredited partners to make setting up, running and running a business simpler and more efficient.
How it Works
Start.biz allows each business owner to focus on what they do best while providing or directing them to a variety of professional services that are critical to the operation and success of their business.
Our ‘Just Start’ package makes setting your business up quick, simple and affordable. This is the perfect package for new limited companies, sole traders, freelancers or contractors. With ‘Just Start’ you will receive the fundamental products and services to get your business compliant and ready to trade.
Intellectual Property (IP) is one of the most valuable assets in your business. It’s your reputation, it makes your business unique and it’s what your customers love about you. We have been providing IP services for over 35 years to businesses of all shapes and sizes; from coffee shops to tradespeople to global hotel chains.
At Start.biz, we have over 15 years’ experience in raising finance, providing finance support and also assisting with Mergers and Acquisitions. There is rarely a “one size fits all” approach to raising finance as every business is different – put us to the task to start exploring your options and find the right solution.
