Consultants to small businesses and start-ups, we are a one stop shop providing professional legal and financial services in one place at a reasonable cost.
Small businesses find they suddenly have to be masters of all trades and we can take away the more difficult ones so they can concentrate on the core business. Legal matters need attending to although many small businesses do not realise what they should be doing until there is a problem. So come and find out in advance before trouble hits.
Our services include :
Legal matters – advising on the correct structure and setting it up for you, drafting clear terms and conditions, preparing contracts that both parties can read and understand, checking your lease preferably before you sign it. Being aware of the laws and rules that affect your particular business. Consider protecting your IP.
Finances- we set up your record keeping either for you to do or we provide a bookkeeping service, provide management and end of year accounts and cash flow forecasts
Business plans- all businesses should have one to see where they are and where they are going. If applying for a grant or loan they are essential.
And now also Auto enrolment – we can give advice and take you through the process from start to Declaration of Compliance. Every business with an employee that is given a staging date needs to go through the process at some level even if at the end they declare that they have no employees to auto enrol.
The company’s philosophy is far removed from simple number crunching!
We offer detailed tax advice and planning, helping clients structure their business appropriately and explore their choices based on their current and future requirements. Our clients are typically owner-managed businesses and personal tax clients who require a high level of personal service and proactive input in a cost efficient manner.
We have a wealth of experience helping SME’s keep control of their businesses through our general support service for accounting and management information systems and, when needed, vital troubleshooting. As you’d expect, all core accounting functions are supplied “to time” and on a value-for-money basis.
Clients are ensured peace of mind about compliance issues via the opportunity to take up an annual tax investigation insurance.
We are also R & D tax relief specialists, which is a niche area of tax requiring significant expertise in order to realise the full benefit. R & D tax relief is available for a variety of businesses including manufacturing, software and medical companies. Businesses that already claim the relief often come to us as the overall benefit to the company has not been maximised, which is where our experience and understanding is of most importance.
As both qualified accountants and chartered tax advisers, we are ideally placed to understand the interaction of tax and other aspects of businesses. We can deal with claims for work already undertaken but we also work with clients on future projects to ensure that the benefit to the company is maximised through R&D Tax Credits, Patent Box, and other tax allowances.
In effect, you get the technical expertise and experience you would expect from a large national firm with the cost structure and personal attention of the smaller firm.
