“Save time, money and effort while you set up and grow your business”


Starting a new business is exciting but it’s also time consuming and stressful, and there are often lots of new skills to learn and business regulations / responsibilities to deal with.  We have done it, we understand what you are going through.  It’s your ‘baby’ and you need time to nurture and grow your business.  The finance side is often overlooked and help in this area will be valuable to you.


If you are like most small business owners, you probably started off trying to do everything yourself, but now the business is growing, things are a little more complicated. If you are doing your own books, you are probably misusing the time you could be spending on developing and growing your business. What’s more you are missing out on the many benefits an experienced bookkeeper can bring you.


“We offer a present and future business service designed to add maximum value”


A high percentage of small businesses fail within the first five years, often because they have not kept track of their finances. Don’t be one of them.  Contact us for valuable help on how to start up your new business and get the finances right.
