Setting up a new business? You’ll need an accountant…

Many people start a new business thinking that they only need to involve an accountant in Bolton to prepare their accounts and tax returns at the end of their first year of trading. However, by failing to seek the advice of an Bolton accountant at the outset, you could be missing out on invaluable advice.

One of the issues that a qualified Bolton accountant will address with you before you embark on your venture would include preparation of a business plan. This plan will help you to properly understand and estimate future performance and cash flow.

Another area which should be carefully considered is the appropriate business entity. Your new business may be a limited company, a sole trader or partnership.  The correct structure for your business is imperative for many reasons, not least of all tax and you should seek professional advice before commencing to trade.

Accounting systems and computer software for a business in its infancy need not be complicated. However, putting the appropriate systems in place before trading is essential in order to monitor and control future performance and costs.

The provision of information to prospective lenders is also important. Almost all new businesses will need to borrow from banks or other lending institutions at an early stage. In order to successfully obtain such loan finance, the provision of information in a professional clear and considered form is essential.

Using a qualified and experienced Bolton accountant to help you plan and set up your business is an essential step at the beginning of your new business.

We’ve recently launched our LaunCHWorks package to help new businesses hit the ground running. Our package is dedicated in helping start-ups businesses with he help and advice they need.
