Our Scale-Up Plan
Real Business Experience
Think of us as part of your team. You don't need to hire a full-time bean counter when you've got us! We've run businesses ourselves, and still do, so we bring more perspective and commercial experience you won't find anywhere else.
Let's face it, everything is online nowadays, so it make sense that your accounts should be too. We'll help you choose the best software for your business, then set it up & show you how it works. All of which we'll do in plain English, jargon-free, so you'll understand exactly what's going on!

Like the sound of this but want to know more? We thought so. We’ve answered some of the most commonly asked questions to help you.
Can you help set up my reporting?!
Most businesses just use the generic reporting that comes ‘out of the box’. We’re not a fan of them, so we’ll set-up the reports so that they’re tailored to your business.
We NEED to manage our cash flow better!
Managing cash flow is a huge challenge for many businesses. The old adage of ‘Cash is King’ holds true. With the right tools, we’ll help you get on top of cash flow, and because we use online accounting for EVERY client, we’ll keep an eye on things remotely.
Should we have a Non-Exec Director?!
A Non-Executive Director (NXD) can add a huge amount of value to a business. A good NXD brings an independent perspective and will not only challenge the Board to make sure that you’re making the right decisions, they’ll also input on things like strategy and finance. They’ll also have their own network of contacts and may be able to make strategic introductions for you.
Do you provide Finance Director Level Support?!
Yes! For many of our clients, we act as their Finance Director, helping prepare and present monthly accounts and advising on things like pricing, financing, and business strategy. We’ve run businesses for over 25 years, so we bring a wealth of experience that our clients truly value, and which helps them to grow.
Can you get us investor ready?!
Yes! We’ve got a tonne of experience when it comes to investment and raising finance. The market for investing and funding has changed a lot over the past few years, but there’s still money out there to support the right businesses. We’ll help you craft a compelling proposition, and with us as your accountants, they’ll be biting your hand off to give you money!
Can you run my board meetings?!
Yes! We’ve got a wealth of expertise when it comes to helping Scale-Ups. We’ll help you manage your shareholders in the right way, so everyone is kept in the loop and fully behind the business.
