Helping New Small and Medium Businesses
Research shows that 80% of new businesses fail within the first five years, and a large percentage cease trading within their first year. Starting a business is tough, but we can give you a helping hand. Small and medium Business start-ups with a good accountancy firm behind them enhance their chance of success significantly. Stephens Accountants offer services in Pontefract, Castleford, Knottingley, Normanton and South Kirkby and have helped many of the new businesses in the five town areas for over 26 years.
So, if you are thinking of starting a business or you have recently made those initial steps, then our start-up service has been developed with you in mind. The effective planning of your business is critical, and our team have been supporting business owners like you for over 26 years, with our knowledge, expertise and first-class service.
So how can we support you in starting your business?
The decision about the format of the business is vital. Limited Company, Sole Trader and Partnership all offer different advantages, and depending on your business type may determine how you set your business up to maximise tax efficiency, business flexibility, corporate red tape, and ultimately reduce cost. This is a discussion we need to have before you do anything!
If appropriate, we can discuss the options to have the business set up with, for instance, a company name, registration number, registered office, directors, shareholders and bank account within seven days. Websites, branding, stationery, marketing, etc, are all available from our trusted partners.
Of course, we offer a traditional range of services designed to support your business thereafter, such as:
- Accounts preparation.
- Business planning.
- Tax advice, including tax planning, compliance and VAT.
- Raising finance.
- Company secretarial services.
We will be able to help with those ‘how to’ questions and help you set up a business that best suits your products, services and personal circumstances. You’ll have lots of questions that we have the answers to.
