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.

Most however are not experts in the legal and financial aspects of running a business and such matters can 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 and HMRC
  • deal with company secretarial issues
  • set up a recording system for your internal use and for complying with statutory requirements
  • install and set up bookkeeping software. Xero is our preferred software.

"Gavin has been not just been a reliable accountant for my two business and personal tax, but also has provided me with a complete holistic approach to the start of my photography business. Gavin has a very strong work ethic which allows him to be pro-active rather than re-active."

Jonathan Emery – Vector Photography Ltd

"Having known Gavin a while and seen his 4Sight at a 4Networking group I already knew how switched on he was. After him taking a look at our accounts and showing me how we could literally save thousands I didn't hesitate to move from my previous accountants. Excellent service and really proactive, highly recommended."

Richard Eaton – Appware Ltd

"Gavin provided help to startup businesses within QU2. The businesses have only excellent feedback and praise for his time and work. I personally recommend Gavin for his Accountancy Services to small businesses, startups and social enterprise projects."

Nicola Smith

"Gavin's presentation was very insightful! He gave tax tips in layman’s terms so everyone could understand and benefit. Full of knowledge, personable, easy to talk to and easy to understand. I would highly recommend Gavin."
