Business Start-up

Business Start-up

Starting a business is a really exciting time, but we know it is also a very busy time.

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.
