Practical Financial Advice

Because no two businesses are the same, we adapt our accounting, financial and tax advice according to the needs of each individual client.

All clients however, have certain requirements in common – irrespective of whether they are a sole trader or a substantial organisation considering a public flotation. They all require:

  • Accurate and meaningful financial information
  • Practical advice on taxation matters
  • Sympathetic and effective guidance on all financial matters
  • New Businesses

The success of a new business is linked to the level of competent and professional advice it receives on tax and accountancy before and during the early stages of trading. Areas that demand particular attention include: The Ownership Structure, Limited Liability; Finance; Pre-trading expenditure; Accounting systems, financial controls, Pay As You Earn and Value Added Tax.

The Developing Business

Developing businesses often need more sophisticated assistance in respect of Formulating Business Plans, Management Accounting, Consultancy, Tax Planning, Remuneration Structures, Finance, Takeovers and Mergers and effective use of Information Technology.

The Established Business

Established businesses often present different challenges. For example some family run concerns may wish to retain ownership of the firm, whilst planning for the older generation’s retirement and the transfer of assets. Others may be concerned with the ultimate sale of the business. The pre-requisite for transactions such as these is the sound financial advice and tax planning provided by our experienced staff.

Equally critical in these areas are our presentation and negotiation skills combined with our understanding of the personal issues involved.

Finance for Business

After providing a client with advice on the most appropriate financial assistance for their business, our staff can also apply their experience and skills by actually negotiating loans with banks or other financial institutions. We can also help with the preparation of financial presentations and offer advice and assistance in preparing data in order to obtain government grants and other incentives.
