Accounting services and professional advice to help owner managers grow their small businesses.

Following the frantic period of creating a business and having established a viable operation, you'll likely shift into a phase of growing sales, income and becoming profitable. Unfortunately business growth can come with drawbacks especially if there isn't a sufficient level of financial management, systems, and controls in place. Profits may not necessarily grow with turnover and your organisation will become far harder to manage.

The stages model Shirlaws official version

Shifting from a start-up perspective into the growth phase, per the stages model above courtesy of Shirlaws, does require a change of mindset. You may need to review your ownership structure, strategic direction, accounting software, tax relief options, and talent pipeline. It can feel overwhelming to do this for the first time: fortunately, we’ve been doing it for years and can guide you every step of the way through your journey.

We've helped many growing businesses progress and reap the rewards of their hard work.

We can help you plan your long and short term financial options for raising finance.

How much do accounting fees cost?

Our fees are bespoke to your specific needs and circumstances. We take into account the services you require, the complexity of the work involved, and the time it will take to complete it. This ensures that out quote is unique to you and aligned to your requirements.

We determine our fees based on our hourly rates and an estimation of the time required to carry out the necessary tasks. Depending on your needs, we may also offer a fixed monthly fee quote. As your business scales and expands, we may introduce additional services and related fees so that your back office finance function grows with your operations.

In general, fees for our services may increase over time as your business grows. We would be happy to provide you with more information, so please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
