Starting a New Business – Business Start-Up Advice & Start-up Accounting
Our Business Start Up advice service is for any new business venture, and is tailored to suit requirements. Adams Moore has found over the years that clients who are starting a business require more from accountancy services than simply compiling accounts at year end, and recognises that clients want regular contact where issues of the day can be dealt promptly and efficiently, whilst at the same time keeping costs under control.
Some people understandably don’t realise what is required from start-up accounting, whether they would be better operating as a sole trader or how to register a new business. Therefore, we work in partnership with a client and their business to discuss all elements of set-up and the financial obligations.
Adams Moore becomes part of the Finance Department and senior management team, and the fee is fixed so that clients are able to draw on all of the business experience and business contacts of Adams Moore.
