Business start-up

Most people starting up in business do so because they have a good business proposition and the enterprise and commitment to see it through.

However, they may not be experts in the legal and financial aspects of running a business and such matters often appear daunting. Fortunately you do not need to be an expert in these fields to succeed in business but you do need the support of a team of trained experts.

We can help. Just bring us your business ideas and we will help you to make them a reality!

We will help you to:

  • decide on the most suitable structure for your business - sole trader, partnership, limited liability partnership or limited company;
  • prepare a business plan, cashflow projections, budgets, and trading forecasts;
  • assess the finance requirements, advise on the best sources of finance and draw up the necessary proposals;
  • establish a good working relationship with your bank;
  • complete any registration procedures with Companies House, Inland Revenue and Customs & Excise;
  • deal with company secretarial issues;
  • set up a recording system for your internal use and for complying with statutory requirements;
  • decide on what computer hardware to buy and help with the installation of accountancy software;
  • keep on top of bookkeeping, VAT, payroll and other accounting requirements; and
  • help with all aspects of business compliance and administration.

Also if you are a small to medium sized business or a business start-up, it makes you eligible to take advantage of a free initial consultation at Anderson Barrowcliff LLP through the Business Advice Service (BAS). The Business Advice Service (BAS) is a facility set-up by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW).

One of the best decisions I have made as a business owner was to appoint Anderson Barrowcliff LLP as our accountants. Since moving to Anderson Barrowcliff in 2014, the AB team have not only secured us a significant level of grant funding, they have also helped us with a major company restructure that has greatly helped with our commerciality and growth strategy. They have also helped to introduce us to a key new customer. I would highly recommend (and have already done so) Anderson Barrowcliff to all my business contacts.

Many many thanks for all your help, input and advice since you have taken over the accounts. Both you and Anderson Barrowcliff have been a breath of fresh air and we have certainly had our eyes opened as to what information is available. As we always say ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’ so until you presented us with the information that you consider standard on a monthly basis, it was such a relief to be able to see and interpret the figures in an easy to read and understand format.
Anderson Barrowcliff have helped us enormously pre and post conversion by providing advice on software, policies and procedures. They offer a professional service with a friendly approach.
