Chartered accountants are a must for new businesses
Starting a new business can be a daunting prospect, especially when you consider the added burden of keeping on top of your books and financial administration.
The best piece of advice I offer to entrepreneurs and new start-ups is to make sure you have a good team in place to support you every step of the way.
This would include a professionally qualified chartered accountant or firm.
It can be easy to overlook the need for a chartered accountant but they can save their clients money, offer the best advice and save a lot of hassle when it comes to navigating the financial side of their business.
Effective chartered accountants don’t simply run their eyes over your books and look at the numbers, they can provide valuable experience when it comes to setting up and getting your business started.
At James Milne we offer a range of accountancy services which cover all of the bases for new businesses, including: accountancy, budgeting, business taxation, bookkeeping, payroll services and tax planning.
Clients benefit from our partner-led approach, as well as the attention to detail, integrity and professional advice that's all part of the service.
The first year of any new business is a crucial period and good accountancy support will keep a fledgling business on the right path.
It's important to have a steady hand at the helm who can offer experience and a deep understanding of the ups and downs of industry and commerce.
A chartered accountant is someone you can trust and rely on, leaving you to get on with running the business. We are also good listeners, a sound springboard, and full of good advice to bring your ideas to life.
Then of course there's looking after the business, making sure all accountancy matters are on a sound footing and your business is in good shape ready for the challenges that lie ahead.
At James Milne, we believe clients should concentrate on what is most important to them - running the business - while we provide the foundation and support to make this happen.
