Business Start-up

Most people who start in business are driven by a desire to make a strong business proposition into reality. They’re full of enterprise and commitment. What they’re not, in many cases, is expert in the legal, financial and compliance responsibilities that come with it. In fact, many would-be entrepreneurs are put off from making the leap into launching a startup because the bureaucracy is so daunting.

You’ve got to decide on a business structure, find a registered address, fill in forms and file them with Companies House and HMRC, set up a bookkeeping system, and more.

Now, the good news: you can actually leave all of that to us, freeing you up to focus on what really excites you. We’ll make sure that, from day one, your business is properly set up and fully compliant. More than that, we’ll also make sure it’s as tax efficient as possible and in the best position to succeed. If you need it, we can even help you find and win the financing you need to get your business up and running.

It starts with a conversation about the business you want to create. We’ll give direct, honest feedback and help you evaluate your own ideas, identifying potential weaknesses and opportunities you might not have considered. We’ll then agree what you need us to do and, well, get on with it.

> Bookkeeping and accounting

We’ll take care of your bookkeeping and accounting, including the preparation of your annual accounts, saving you and your team a lot of time and hard work.

> Strategic business planning

Successful businesses plan ahead – everyone knows that. But it can be hard to find the time to do it at all, never mind properly. With our support, that won’t be a problem.

> Business start-up

Most people who start businesses are excited about their idea, not because they’re looking forward to all the paperwork that comes with it. From registrations to filings, we can help.

> Company secretarial

The last thing you need as a busy business owner is to use up valuable time ticking boxes to comply with the Companies Act. Why not let us look after that for you instead?

> Corporate financing

Whether yours is a new or a mature business, there will be times when you need additional capital to manage cashflow or to reach ambitious long-term growth objectives.

> Acquisitions and disposals

One of the most effective ways to improve your competitive position in the marketplace is by merging with or acquiring another business. Our M&A experts can help.

> Payroll

Managing payroll can be time consuming and tricky, diverting energy from the core activities of your business. From auto-enrolment pensions to payslips, we cover it all.
