Hello,

You need to register your business with your local authority's environmental health section at least 28 days before starting the business.

Registration is free. If you have not registered already, you should do so as soon as possible.

There are various other laws that you need to comply with e.g. general food laws, tax laws etc.

You will find all the information here on this government website: http://www.food.gov.uk/business-industry/caterers/startingup

Hope this helps
