  7. Starting A Business

Most accountants will claim to be experts in helping business startups but, before engaging one to help you start and grow your business, you should ask them one simple question ‘when did you last launch a successful business?’.

We set up 360 as recently as 5 years ago so know first hand how difficult it is to build a successful business – the long hours, finding and keeping quality staff, marketing the business, managing the cash flow and all the red tape: the list is never ending.

We can advise on all the usual startup considerations:

  • Which legal entity to choose (limited company, non-limited company, limited liability partnership, traditional partnership or sole trader)
  • Registering with the necessary authorities
  • Bookkeeping
  • Extracting profits tax efficiently
  • Insurance requirements
  • The pros and cons of registering for VAT
  • Raising finance
  • Employing staff

But, unlike most accountants, we can also help with:

  • IT (e.g. cloud v traditional, hardware and software)
  • Marketing ( we will help promote your business on our website and social media channels)
  • Networking (ask us about BNI, Chamber of Commerce and Biz Niz)
  • Social media (we’ll share with you the secret of building up a huge following)
  • Time management (we’ve been there and bought the T-shirt!)
  • Recruitment (particularly apprentices)

We’ve even produced a New Business Kit which is updated every year for all the latest tax rates, tax saving tips and marketing ideas. It’s available in paperback or PDF – just ask us for a free copy.

We pride ourselves on giving clear, concise, easy to understand advice in an unstuffy environment. Packages can be tailored to your exact needs and we can provide a fixed fee, pay monthly option if required. Whether you’re starting a small business, starting an online business, starting a business from home, or just simply need some straight forward business startup advice, we’re here to help.

Please get in touch for a free, no obligation initial meeting.
