Free Start Your Own Business Book

Start Your Own Business in 2017

Start Your Own Business in 2017

This 180 page book is packed with start-up information and contact details designed to help you start your business successfully.

We have been running SYOB for over 10 years now and have accumulated an enormous amount of information which could make the difference between start-up success or failure.

Starting a business is easy but keeping it going and making a profit is a completely different proposition. The good news is that there are tried and tested 'rules' which have consistently proved to work.

As the old addage says 'you don't know what you don't know'!

You can download the whole book now (free of charge).

Do you need an accountant who will look after your every need from book keeping through to Tax Returns?

If so, I can help you.

I am a licensed AAT Member in Practice, specialising in small to medium enterprises, offering a professional but friendly Book Keeping, Payroll, Accounts and Tax service.

I have a varied client base for whom I provide individualised services depending on the type and requirements of the business. These businesses range from the small one man band to limited companies covering a wide range of trades.

I cover all Book Keeping services, Payroll, Accounts, Tax and company formations. I mainly work off site which leaves you free to concentrate on the important side of your business - running an efficient service for your customers - and knowing that the equally important function of your business i.e. your account records are being kept up to date. I can also supply a credit control service which will result in a much more beneficial cash flow status for your business.

I use various software packages which are selected to meet your individual business needs and provide the monthly management information which will help your business move forward successfully.

Your year end Accounts and Tax Returns will not present a problem whether your book keeping is carried out by me or yourself.

I am also able to offer a tutoring service in software packages, should you wish to complete your book keeping yourself.

Please call or email me for further information, and to book your initial on site consultation.
