Business Start Up

Starting a business should be a really exciting time – you have a good proposition, a good understanding of your market and you’re raring to go.

There are some important decisions you have to make when starting up a business that will have a major impact on its success, such as:-

  • Do you need funding?
  • If so, how much, when and for how long?
  • Do you know where to get it and what it will cost you?
  • Have you done a business plan with budgets, P & L and cash flow forecasts?
  • Is it better to be a limited company, a partnership, LLP or sole trader?
  • Do you need to be VAT-registered?
  • Is it financially advantageous to be registered even if you don’t need to?
  • Do you know how to form a company and what company names are available?
  • If it is a limited company, do you need a shareholder agreement?
  • Will you do your own accounts?
  • What accounting software should you buy?
  • What records are you required to keep?
  • Will you do your own credit control?
  • Have you chosen the best bank for your business?

We can help you with these and many other start-up issues, making sure that the decisions you take at start-up are the right ones for your business as it grows.

We can take on all the registration and compliance tasks for you, freeing up your time to do what you’re best at – providing the right goods and services to your target markets at a profit.

We can provide you ongoing book-keeping, accountancy and full back-office services on a monthly basis – as much or as little as you need.

We can even answer your phones and manage your bank account for you if you wish.

As your business grows and your needs change, you can add or subtract from the services you take from us, without being tied in to any contract.
