Founder IP Assignment (Taylor Vinters)

This Founder IP Assignment is intended to be used to assign IP rights created by a founder for the company to the company itself. It will often be required to assign IP created by the founder prior to the founder entering into a formal services agreement with the company, which would otherwise continue to subsist in the founder. This Founder IP Assignment is drafted broadly and is not appropriate for more general IP assignments (see IP Assignment Templates).

Start a new business

There are a few things you will need to do when starting a business in the UK:

1. Choose a business structure - this will determine what legal documents you will need. For example, if you are setting up a limited company, you will need to register with Companies House and file certain documents.

2. Register your business - you will need to register your business with HMRC and other relevant authorities.

3. Get a business bank account - you will need to open a business bank account in order to separate your personal and business finances.

4. Draw up contracts - if you will be working with clients or customers, it is important to have contracts in place. This will protect both parties and ensure that everyone is clear on what is expected.

5. Comply with regulations - there are various regulations that businesses need to comply with in the UK. For example, you will need to have employer's liability insurance if you have employees.

Create a founder agreement
