Business consultancy and systems advice

Small changes can make a big difference – our care and attention sets you on the right path

Things don’t always run smoothly in the world of business, so we’ve designed a set of accountancy services that will give you that extra bit of care and attention when you need it.

Perhaps profitability has shrunk, you've got a liquidity problem or one of your main suppliers has gone bust. Maybe you need some advice about retirement and selling your business, or you want to expand or buy out a competitor. Whatever the issue, we've got the experience and expertise to help.

Staying competitive

We can provide you with an in-depth report with all the information you need to improve your business and increase profitability.

We look at:

  • How your business compares to your competitors
  • Where you fare within your industry in general
  • What will improve your position
  • What will happen if you increase prices
  • How you can increase profits

Most importantly, there is no guesswork involved – we look at all the evidence, think creatively and use an open mind to help you find the best path forward.

Personal balance sheet

You can see what your business is worth in terms of assets and liabilities by looking at the balance sheet. But your business is just one aspect of your assets - what about your total wealth?

A personal balance sheet summarises all your assets and liabilities, including your business, so that you can see how much you are worth. This is vital to know, not only for inheritance tax and succession planning, but also to ensure you will have the right mix of assets for your target retirement date.

Estate planning and wealth management

Making plans for after your death is an uncomfortable but essential issue.

Power In Numbers will help you make all the correct provisions for your estate and wealth and allow you to take advantage of all the tax opportunities available.

With our detailed knowledge of the current tax regime we help you:

  • Plan and review your will
  • Make full use of tax exemptions and lower tax rates on lifetime transfers
  • Optimise lifetime transfers between family members
  • Transfer agriculture or business property
  • Transfer assets into trust
  • Set aside assets for future beneficiaries outside the inheritance tax net

The ultimate performance plan

Our one-page plan identifies, measures and evaluates key success drivers and performance indicators in your business and reports on them on a single sheet of paper.

This gives you all the information you need in a clear, concise report that you can easily read, review and react to.

Virtual finance director

Ever felt the need to appoint a finance director but can’t afford it or find the right person?

Our Virtual FD package fills that gap and provides that additional input needed to structure and guide your company on financial matters.

Remuneration planning

Your key people (and that includes you) are extremely important to the success of your business; it is therefore essential that everyone is kept highly motivated.

Bonuses and dividends are the traditional way of rewarding key people, but now there are alternatives that are more tax efficient and promote even higher levels of motivation and productivity.

Our new software tool compares thousands of different remuneration options to identify the best results for your business.

Specialist tax planning

Take advantage of our expertise on a wide range of tax planning issues to reduce your tax burden on:

  • Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT)

It details all the aspects we feel you need to consider for your business and personal finances, including great ideas for tax savings, efficiency savings and performance improvement.
