Whether you have an established business or have a good business idea and want to start up your own business, we can help you plan the way forward. We will provide you with financial advice and through the use of financial tools help your business to grow successfully.

The initial question most people ask is whether they should start out as self employed, a sole trader, partnership or limited company. If you are already in business as a sole trader should you become a limited company? What are the tax implications? What are the pros and con’s of each structure? Should you become Vat registered straight away or wait until you reach the threshold? There are many important considerations which can determine whether your new business succeeds or existing business continues to grow. A staggering 57% of business start-ups fail in their first year!

No less important to any business is a detailed business plan setting out what you want to achieve from your business and how your investment will work. You will also need detailed cash flow projections to ensure that you business is financial viable or any new investment will yield a good rate of return.

Forecasting and budgeting is extremely important to new and existing businesses. At the start of your financial year we can produce detailed forecasts and budgets in line with your businesses current and projected activity. We will discuss with you your plan for your business over the coming year and set out realistic, achievable targets. On a monthly basis we can then review your performance against these forecasts and produce variance reports detailing areas your business needs to focus on. Forecasting is a useful tool for decision making and gives your business clear targets. Forecasts and budgets also help to prove the financial viability of your business plans to banks and potential investors.
