Business Advice

Business Advice

Francis & Co have considerable experience as accountants of helping a vast variety of business types and sizes. We can provide help with projections, forecasts, preparing cashflows, assisting with finance applications, day to day business, consultancy and much more.

Many businesses will find it beneficial to trade as Limited Companies rather than as sole traders or partnerships. We make the process of changing to a Limited Company straight forward and we explain all the detail, give examples of tax savings, and much more in a free no obligation meeting. If you then want to proceed we can sort the whole changeover out for you for £100 + vat. This will include same day on-line company formation of the company name of your choice, appointing the company officers and shareholders, providing the necessary Certificate of Incorporation and Articles of Association, setting up a payroll scheme and even doing your VAT registration if required.

Some businesses will happily continue (or set up) as sole traders or partnerships and we are more than happy to help them as well! See our long list of client types that we already support.

Going forward we can then do as much or as little of the bookkeeping, payroll, VAT, year end accounts and tax returns that you would like us to. We also give ongoing tax advice to all our clients and regularly provide updates that are relevant to your business.

We are happy to agree fees for a 12 month period to be paid by monthly standing order so everyone knows where they are and can budget for the appropriate costs.

Our fees are competitive and we pride ourselves on being proactive, helpful and always there to help.

We also have connections with several large banks and independent financial advisors if you need advice on business accounts and loans, mortgages, pension, and much much more!
