WHAT WE DO
Business start-ups

Both setting up, and maintaining a company with Companies House brings lots of formal records that need to be kept up to date and filed. We’re more than happy to make sure that all of this is taken care of, and we’ll even let you use our address as your registered office!

At CHW we have over 35 years’ experience in assisting businesses who are setting up for the first time. If you come to us as your first port of call, we can ensure you receive the correct advice and provide practical references and can cover the following:

 

  • Initial free consultation

Typically, up to a 1 hour introductory meeting to understand the business model. This enables us to identify potential business structures and the best way to proceed.

 

  • Business structure advice

Your business can take many forms – sole trader, partnership, limited company, limited liability partnership – we can explain the different legal statuses and ascertain the most suitable.

 

  • Basic forecasts

Every business needs targets and benchmarks to drive them forward. We can prepare these for you as part of our start up pack or provide some pointers and or a template to produce your own.

 

  • Company/business set up

We can form the company and or register the business/partnership with the Inland revenue and make the necessary notifications including VAT registration if required.

 

  • Guidance with record keeping

It is important to keep the costs as low as possible during the start-up and growth stages. Initially keeping your own simple records enables this. We can provide locked down excel based templates to ensure your records are compliant. If you are more adventurous we can provide guidance on the latest subscription based software.

 

  • Professional network of contacts

Being part of the Cowgill Holloway Group, CHW benefits from a wide-reaching network. Our clients can benefit from this with banks, insurance brokers, and funders being just a few references we can provide.
