Business startup

Most people who start up in business do so because they have a strong business proposition and the expertise, enterprise and commitment to see it through. It’s not usually because they’re enthusiastic about the legal and financial aspects of running a business.

In fact, many entrepreneurs never get their business off the ground because they can’t face that side of things, or struggle to get a handle on it. That’s a terrible shame.

The good news is, you don’t need to be an expert administrator to succeed in business – you just need the right advisers at your side, taking care of compliance. That’s where we fit in.

First, before you even kick things off, bring us your business ideas and we’ll evaluate them with you, giving realistic, constructive feedback. If the numbers don’t add up, we’ll tell you, as well as giving clear advice on how you might be able to change that.

We can also help you decide on the most suitable structure for your business – sole trader, partnership or limited company? Each has its pros and cons.

A business plan is a must for any serious business. We can help you with that, too, including provision of cashflow projections, budgets, and trading forecasts. These are all vital in convincing lenders and investors to support your business in its startup phase.

When it comes to funding, we’ll assess your capital requirements, advise on the best sources of finance, and draw up the necessary proposals. We’ll establish a good working relationship with your bank, too, talking the language of finance.

In practical terms, our business startup accountants will also complete any registration procedures with Companies House and HMRC, deal with company secretarial issues on your behalf and set up a robust, compliant financial recording system.
