Should you be a sole trader, partnership, Limited Company or even a Limited Liability Partnership? We will talk you through which option is best for you.

Raising Finance and Business Plans
Most businesses need funding in order to get going and to help reach their potential. We can help identify the need and most suitable source of funding for your business.
Through our close working relationships with finance sources we can assist in putting together a business plan for:
Business loans and overdrafts
Sales invoice factoring and discounting
Leasing and contract hire
Venture capital and private investment
Often a business plan will be needed in support of a finance application, although every business should have a plan for long term growth and development. Research suggests that those businesses with a written business plan are far more likely to succeed. We can assist with all aspects of the business plan from the written element to budgets, cash flow and profit forecasts.
We can then help you monitor the plan to help you achieve your business objectives.
