Hi there! Prior to launching any business, start its promotion. You can use social media or SMS marketing along with printed promotional products. I personally used the help of the event agency ( ) to arrange some exhibitions to promote my business. They helped me land a few loyal wholesale buyers and a partner. I wish you good luck!

Get an accountant. I can pm you mine if you like - they have been great.
Then it depends on what the business is - buying domains and setting up company name emails is surprisingly easy and cheap and makes you look more professional. Have a Google as to whether you want to operate as a limited company or alternative (sole trader).
It's hard to say what you need to do without knowing your business though!

Also Google business bank accounts as you need one. I wouldn't really recommend mine. Again these are surprisingly easy to set up - do it before you are receiving any money's in.
