Business start-ups

Get the right support from day one

Starting your own business is an exciting, yet daunting time. You want to realise your dreams, make your great idea a success and create a business that will support your future, but you also want to keep overheads low and do as much as possible by yourself until you have a better idea of whether you are likely to succeed.

For these reasons, many small business start-ups and self-employed freelancers or consultants opt not to seek accounting advice from a professional in the early stages of their business, often waiting at least a year until the first set of annual accounts are required. However, getting professional advice from day one can help to make this dream a reality by ensuring that you’re fully informed, have considered your plans fully and you are adequately prepared to succeed.

The cost of bookkeeping is often less than the hourly rate that you plan to charge your clients. We can remove additional burdens from your already long list of tasks by ensuring that you are compliant, and dealing efficiently and effectively with areas that you may have limited experience in on your behalf.

Alternatively, you can retain control, with the added benefit of having access to a team of accountants when needed, by using one of our online accounting services. Find out more at our dedicated FB Digital website.

The key to your business success is making sure you are able to focus on what you do best – building and running your business.
