    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    There are a number of things you need to consider. If you have already begun selling products you should really be registered with the HMRC as self employed. This is easy to do either over the phone or online. Even though you may not make enough to pay tax you still need to be registered. Its not as daunting as it sounds. You will just need to fill in a self assessment each year. Just remember to keep records and receipts for everything going in and out.

    If you haven't already got it, I would strongly recomend public and product liability insurance. If you type insurance into the search box on this forum, you'll find loads of threads with suggestions of companies that do specific craft insurance.

    The business link web site is also another good place to look for things like regulations in respect of what you might be selling. For example safety issues with the things you use to make your products.

    I've probably forgotten something, so I'm sure other people will add to it. Good luck!

              Hi

              Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll get all the help and advise you need from everyone on here as everyone is really helpful.

              I agree with CJ to get all the legal stuff sorted first and then get a website up and running as soon as you can. There's quite a few sites that you can use to create your own easily enough.

              Good luck with your venture
