Small Business Start Ups

A new business is launched in the UK every minute but deciding to launch a new venture is a big decision. The process can be daunting and most people who choose to start their own company do so because they have a viable business proposition coupled with initiative, resourcefulness, enthusiasm and commitment. They are not necessarily an expert in the complicated areas of legislation, regulation and finance and that’s where we can help.

Evaluating your business plan, choosing the right company structure, exploring funding options, regulatory governance, employment and company law and the bookkeeping are just some of the things you need to consider. We have a team of experts who can help you decide whether to incorporate your company and advise you about the pros and cons of the various structures. We can guide you through all the procedural aspects and help you to prepare the necessary information and documents that you need at each stage of the start-up process.

Once you are up and running, you will need a different level of support and our services can be scaled to suit your requirements and individual circumstances. From basic bookkeeping to complex funding arrangements, we can give you as much or as little assistance as you want to ensure you meet your legislative responsibilities and financial liabilities and, of course, make a healthy profit.

We’ve helped hundreds of aspiring business men and women to establish, develop and grow their own companies to significant levels of success, so why not join them?

The first thing you need to consider when choosing your potential advisers is their familiarity with your business sector so they fully understand the implications of the specific legislative and financial challenges you may face.

To form a successful and productive relationship, you need to be able to trust the information and advice you are given and believe that your accountant will take a personal interest in your success. At Rowleys, we act for a substantial portfolio of sole traders, partnerships and limited companies in a wide range of market sectors, so you can be confident that we have the specialist expertise to provide the right advice that is tailored to your specific circumstances.

Once you’ve established yourself, your focus will naturally shift towards developing and sustaining your business and you will need accurate, timely and intuitive information on which you can base your decisions.

We have developed a suite of comprehensive business information models that can provide quantitative analysis of your revenue streams and expenses to generate a transparent overview of your company’s financial health. A monthly set of accounts will tell you everything you need to know about the financial status of your company and demonstrate the true cost of running your business.

Our management accounting services are a great way for businesses who don’t have in-house accounts staff to get the support they need at a cost they can afford. Your business is unique, and so is our service. We’ll tailor just the right management accounting package for you, ensuring that our service evolves to support your business as it grows. We will use our expertise to monitor your business performance and give proactive advice on how you can improve your bottom line and turn your products and services into profits.
