Accountants for Startup Businesses

Starting a business is exciting, scary, enjoyable, worrying, energising and difficult, all in the same measure.

There’s so much to think about and so much to do that it can feel a little overwhelming but don’t worry - help is at hand.

Can we help?

We love working with startups and helping to make the dreams of the founders come true.

Whether you have a great idea for a new service, are making strides selling online or manufacturing the ultimate mousetrap, we’re by your side.

Getting you up and running

Is it better to be a sole trader, a partnership or a limited company?

Should you use an online accounting system or get a bookkeeper?

Who do you need to tell you that you’ve started in business?We’ll work with you to identify the best form for your business and develop a roadmap if you want to expand.

We’ll answer your questions about taxation, payroll, bookkeeping and accounts and let you know about all the deadlines for submissions to Companies House and HMRC.

If you would like us to, we can manage the setup of your business, inform HMRC of your new enterprise and make sure that you are properly registered.

And if it helps you can outsource all of your accounting work to us and concentrate on growing your new baby.
