We understand that setting out on a new business venture is exciting. However, it can also be a daunting prospect. Whether you are trading from a spare room in your home, or are starting up on a much bigger scale, there is a wealth of experience and advice we can provide.

Business plans, obtaining finance, deciding whether to be self-employed or incorporated, making the right tax decisions. Dealing with all these issues is time consuming and, if not done correctly, can be costly.

Whatever your budget or business goals we will be your trusted adviser.  We will be there when needed, whether to discuss finance and operations or to bounce ideas off and provide new options and possibilities.

We can help you choose the best set-up for your business.  That means you begin on the right footing and don’t end up paying too much tax simply because your structure isn’t the most efficient option.

In addition, our Wealth Management team can cover all aspects of pensions and shareholder protection if that is required in the short or longer term.

We can also provide wider support including managing your payroll, HR advice, and IT support and maintenance.

Our business start-up services include:

  • providing a registered office address
  • payroll services
  • personal, partnership and corporation tax returns
  • business plan preparation and cash flow forecasts
  • advice on financing your new venture.
