Start Ups

If you are planning to start a new business we provide an independent review of your business plan advising from our personal experience from senior finance roles in a wide range of businesses types and sizes.

We assist with preparing business plans, pre-start up decisions, raising finance, implementing systems, registering for tax  and provide mentoring on running and managing your business.

Our passion is for making businesses more efficient by streamlining and wherever possible automating processes, making the best use of new technology.

At the start of your business venture we can advise on the right legal structure for what you are trying to achieve and you should trade as a sole trader, partnership, or company.

For charities and social enterprises we can advise on the legal structure of the new organisation and how to set up governance arrangements and record keeping to meet your regulatory obligations.

We can provide your business with business plans, cashflow forecasts, budgets and we review the figures with you to ensure you understand how the business is performing.

We also advise companies on share structures and the best ways to extract profits and to minimise tax wherever possible.
