How can an accountant help a start-up?
We’ve worked with a wide variety of start-ups from multiple sectors and located around the UK. Some of them are office-based whilst others operate entirely online, some have a business idea that requires months of research and development whilst others are ready to hit the ground running. But what they all have in common is an expert in their corner who’s ready to answer questions, offer tailored advice and remove time-consuming tasks from their busy schedules.
Over the years, we’ve provided the following services to start-ups across the UK:
Deciding what type of business you should be, such as a sole trader, partnership or a limited company. We’ll advise on the best solution to fit your mission and goals.
We register you with HMRC and, if applicable, Companies House.
The type of software used for your accounts makes a significant difference to your daily operations. We’ll talk you through the most relevant options, then either manage it for you or show you how to do it yourself.
You may have an awesome business name in mind, but it’s crucial that checks are carried out first so that it’s unique, stands out from the crowd and doesn’t conflict with any trademarks. We can do this for you, saving you time and stress.
Insurance comes in many forms and chances are your business will need one form or another. Whether it’s public liability or specialist cover, we have trusted partners that can protect your business and your customers.
You’ll definitely need a business bank account. It’s often tempting to go with the provider you already use for personal transactions, but it might be that another offers better features and perks. We’ll talk you through your options before setting up the account on your behalf.
Compliance all the way! The owners of a start-up need to know all about relevant legislation, GDPR and an assortment of regulations related to their industry. We’ll compile everything you need to know and talk you through it in no-nonsense language, answering any questions you have and guaranteeing complete peace of mind.
Do you need someone to help with other areas of your start-up’s development, such as logistics, marketing, PR, web design, online security or another specialist service? We’re constantly networking and know hundreds of experts in every field, so we can refer you to those that we highly recommend.
