Our business startup services

Before you start a business, there are a number of decisions you need to make. We are here to help you make the right choices for you and your business.

Business structure

We will advise you on which business structure will be the most tax-efficient and commercially viable for your business.

Statutory obligations

We will ensure you feel 100% comfortable with what you need to do, how often and by when.

Company formation

Depending on which business structure you choose, we will register your business with HMRC, Companies House or both.


We will advise you on whether you need to be VAT registered and which scheme would be right for your company.


We will discuss at what point you will need to register for PAYE and the options available for handling payroll.

Registered office

A limited company must have a registered office. We can act on your behalf if you don’t want to use your home address.


From the outset keeping detailed records of your income and expenditure is important. We will talk through the different ways of doing that.

Helping grow your startup business

Once your business is up and running, we are more than happy to act as a sounding-board for where you should take your business next.

With access to all your business information and years of experience of helping startups succeed, we are perfectly placed to provide an independent, fresh perspective on any new ideas or decisions.

In addition, we can take care of a number of accountancy tasks allowing you to concentrate on what you do best.
