Business Start Up Service

When you start up a business there are a lot of things to consider and you need to take proper professional advice to ensure that all financial and legal requirements are attended to. Having said that, this is the time that you can least afford it!

For this reason, we have developed a Business Start Up Service which is both comprehensive and cost effective.

We will guide you through the “start up” process to ensure you meet all your registration requirements; we will consider the best options for how you structure your business as a sole trader or limited company, and will provide you with assistance in preparing your business plan and cash flow forecasts.

Having started, we will continue to assist you in your first crucial months by providing our advice at a discount of 50% from our normal scale rates.

Alongside our initial free of charge introductory meetings, the value of this support to a new start up business is at least £500.

Computerised Accounting Systems

Computer systems are an essential tool in dealing with the record keeping demands of your business. We can advise on the hardware and software you need, and provide initial training and necessary ongoing support on your accounting systems.

We are members of the SAGE Accountant’s Club, and the Quickbooks Pro Advisor Programme, and are able to pass on discounts on software acquisition.

Business Consultancy

Our Partners have been running their own business for many years, and therefore have built up considerable experience in knowing what makes a business successful. You can benefit from our experience, especially in the following areas:

  • Cashflow management and forecasting
  • Credit control and management
  • Establishing accounting control procedures
  • Preparing business plans
  • Succession planning
  • Buying and selling businesses

Personal Financial Planning

An important element of our services to personal clients and business owners is the provision of personal financial planning advice; including advice on savings, investments and pensions.

This is a highly regulated area, and we provide generic advice on pensions and savings as part of our taxation planning advice. For more specific advice we work in conjunction with a small number of leading firms of independent financial advisers in the area who provide detailed advice on pensions, life insurance, income protection, saving, investment and other personal financial planning matters.
