Partnering  to Successfully Deliver Business Goals

MOST COMPANIES TALK ABOUT PLANNING FOR HIGH GROWTH, WHETHER IT’S THE COMPANY AS A WHOLE OR A PARTICULAR NEW PRODUCT THAT APPEARS TO HAVE STAR-LIKE POTENTIAL. ARE YOU CONFIDENT IN YOUR STRATEGY AND IS IT DELIVERING THE GROWTH YOU HAD PLANNED?

We have experience in planning and implementing strategies for high growth across many sectors and can help you reach that full potential…no gimmicks and no fancy acronyms we promise!

CHALLENGES ALWAYS ARISE IN BUSINESS, THAT’S JUST THE NATURE OF THE GAME. YOU’LL NEVER HAVE ALL THE SKILLS REQUIRED TO SORT THEM OUT AND EVEN IF YOU DID THE TIME AND ENERGY INVOLVED IN DEALING WITH SOMETHING THAT’S OUTSIDE OF YOUR SPECIALIST AREA CAN BE DRAINING ON THE TEAM.

We don’t have one person with all the skills either, but we do have an expert team with a very broad range of skills and an even broader network of associates. We specialise in owner managed and private equity backed companies across a wide range of industries, We’ll help identify the particular issues, come up with a plan and help you implement it.

WE SEEM TO COME ACROSS TWO TYPICAL APPROACHES TO ACCOUNTANCY & TAX; IT’S EITHER VIEWED AS A NECESSARY EVIL WHERE CLIENTS JUST WANT IT TAKEN CARE OF AND SORTED IN THE MOST EFFICIENT MANNER, OR, IT’S VIEWED AS A TOOL TO HELP PLAN GOING FORWARD.

We’re happy with either view, so long as we help free up some of your valuable time so that you can concentrate on running your business – after all that’s what you do best! We offer a full range of outsourced accountancy and tax services including; management accounts, statutory accounts, corporation tax, bookkeeping, payroll, VAT and company secretarial services. We have a broad range of suitably qualified people ensuring that you get the right resource when it’s necessary and are totally transparent with our fees – you’ll always be in control and know exactly what you’re paying for.

RUNNING A PROFITABLE BUSINESS IS WHAT YOU DO BEST AND JUST BECAUSE THERE’S THAT UPCOMING TRANSACTION (BE IT AN ACQUISITION, SALE, DISPOSAL OR FUNDRAISING) SHOULDN’T MEAN YOU NEED TO GET DISTRACTED BY THE PROCESS.

Our team are experienced in all forms of transactions and have a brilliant record of delivering. We’ll work alongside you in all aspects, take the brunt of the work and guide you through the process. The earlier on in the process we can be involved the better, it’s never too early to start planning. It could be one of the most important processes you’ll go through – it’s the culmination of years and years of effort. Maximise the opportunity!

PREPARING FOR A DUE DILIGENCE EXERCISE OR BUILDING A FINANCIAL MODEL ARE COMES UP FREQUENTLY IN OWNER MANAGED AND PRIVATE EQUITY BACKED BUSINESSES. DUE DILIGENCE PREPARATION AND FINANCIAL MODELLING DONE IN HASTE AND ON THE BACK OF A NAPKIN DON’T INSPIRE CONFIDENCE AND MOST SMALL TO MEDIUM COMPANIES DON’T HAVE THE IN-HOUSE SKILLS TO DEAL WITH THESE AREAS OR THE DEPTH OF EXPERIENCE TO KNOW WHAT’S EXPECTED.

Having everything prepared and presented in the right way is key to the success of this process! We have been through these many times and are able to help you make sure that it’s done correctly the first time.
