Free initial consultation

To guide new businesses through the maze of setting up, we offer a free, initial consultation.

Establish the right business structure

Deciding whether you are going to be a sole trader, partnership, limited company or limited liability partnership will have consequences for your business. We can work with you to make sure you make the right choice for now and in the future.

Comply with HMRC

When you set up a business you’ll need to register with HMRC, whichever business structure you choose. You will also need to decide whether you want to be VAT registered. We can guide you through this process.

Register with Companies House if you choose to be “ltd”

We can provide help and guidance to take you through what can be a complex registration process.

Set up your bookkeeping

Working with you, we create a simple recording system to make sure your business stays on track.

Increasingly clients are opting for cloud bookkeeping solutions because they enjoy the real time, any place, anywhere access to their accounts. Click here for a simple guide that explains more about cloud accounting.

We work with the market leaders in cloud technology, Xero and Quickbooks, and can help you to identify the provider and package that will suit you best. Equally, you may prefer to use Excel. We don't mind which option you choose, what matters to us most is that it works best for you.


Put together a business plan, cash flow and profit projections

We can help guide and advise you on putting together meaningful business plans. We can ensure your forecast budgets for income and expenditure are realistic and can also provide sensible guidance on your cash flow requirements.  Where necessary we can help you to apply for external financial support.

Understand the tax system

We can provide guidance to help you to understand when tax is payable and budget accordingly. We can also advise you on all the legitimate business expenses you can claim, to reduce the profits on which you pay tax.

Set up a bank account and raise finance

We can help you to choose and set up the right account for your business and if required look at the options for raising additional funding.
