Let me help you Start your business

Confident start-ups.

 

My mission is about helping you to set up your business properly to avoid problems down the line.  Understand how your business works and the compliance framework that is required.  The more you know about how your finances work, the more you can make the essential decisions for your business.  

I will ensure that you have the information that you need to set up your business right from the start.  You will be able to choose the correct structure for your business and when you need to register for tax, VAT and payroll taxes.   I will explain which taxes are appropriate for your situation.

Financial knowledge gives you information and certainty and is vital to comply with HMRC regulations.  Therefore we will help you set up the most appropriate systems, designed to give you control, and knowledge but they will be compliant with all accounting standards and therefore suitable for your accountant and the taxman.

By looking at your goals for the first year, I can help set your initial strategy and build a 12-month plan to take away the fear and uncertainty and give you a clear road-map for your business.  I will hold your hand and guide you as you move through to becoming an established and confident business owner.

I promise that working with me will not lead to overwhelm or stress, I take time to understand you and how you work, and I lead you through the experience of taking control at your pace.  There is no pressure and no judgement, I am a business owner myself and know how all the different pressures of running a business and serving your clients can conspire to derail your time.

Moving to Xero

What can I say? In one, short conversation, Angela bought calm and sense to my financial life. I am someone who suffers from overwhelm around technology and finances, so bringing the two together within an online accountancy programme felt stressful for me, especially as I’m new to learning the financial side of running a business. Angela was able to clearly, calmly and confidently explain everything to me and gave me lots of additional tips and information too. Once we had created my Xero account, Angela was able to give me a guided tour to show me how everything works which was so much nicer and easier than trying to work it out by myself. It’s also nice to know that as I navigate my way through working with Xero independently over the next few months, I can ask Angela for any advice or support that I need.  I’m still in the early stages of using this system so this support feels vital. I recommend Angela’s services to anyone who, like me, suffers from overwhelm around either finances or technology. Her calm, clear and confident approach helped me to feel that I would be able to master the art of online accounting. Thank you Angela.

I have known Angela for a number of years in both a professional and personal capacity. Angela has been a colleague, my accountant and a friend. I value her professional opinion, judgement and advice. I can recommend her as a knowledgeable, personable and conscientious business partner for anyone needing a business and accounting expert.

I had the pleasure of working with Angela as a client of hers and she always gave me very practical advice on a number of matters. It was all about telling me how I could achieve certain finance and tax goals I had with my business as opposed to what I can't do which I really appreciated. Not only that, but I found Angela a great sounding board on a number of topics. I would thoroughly recommend employing and/or working with Angela

Having Angela as an accountant for many years was so much more helpful than just having someone who 'did my accounts'. She stretched my thinking to look at long-term viability and was instrumental in helping me shift my mindset from being a freelance consultant to a business owner. Knowledgeable and friendly - highly recommended!
