Business startup advice

Making light work of starting a brand new business

Setting up a new business should be exciting, not a chore. Alchemy’s business startup service is designed to take the stress out of the financial and statutory obligations so you can focus on what matters to you.

We specialise in offering business startup advice to tech entrepreneurs, creatives starting their own design or marketing agencies and professionals setting up in practice.

When people wonder where to go for advice on starting a business, they don’t always think of an accountant – but they should. We don’t just handle accounts – we’re business experts.

And, yes, you’ll have accounting questions when starting a business, but there’s so much more to think about.

From drawing up business plans investors and lenders won’t be able to resist, to the technicalities of company registration, we’re experts in getting new firms up and running.

Small business startup consulting services

From day one, our small business startup advice will help you make the right decisions to give your new business the best chance to take off and grow.

First, we’ll advise you on business structures – should you set up a limited company or operate as a sole-trader, partnership or limited liability partnership (LLP)?

Your decision will affect how much tax you pay and the level of risk you carry as an individual.

We’ll also support you in mapping out the road ahead, making sure that if there are bumps and obstacles, your business is in the best possible shape to coast right through. Planning, budgeting and forecasting aren’t chores – they’re what will give you the edge and keep cashflow under control.

Finally, we’ll help you put in place the accounting structures your business needs to run efficiently, from bookkeeping to management accounts. Systems and processes put you in control and give your stakeholders confidence.

Cloud accounting for startups

As part of our business startup service we also give our clients access to the latest online accounting software – and the training they need to use it.

It’s a core part of what we do, not an add on, and using cloud accountancy apps from day one will give your business the best possible chance to succeed.

Register a new business

Our company secretarial service covers all the essential paperwork starting with company registration.

We’ll handle all the sign-up procedures with Companies House and HMRC on your behalf.
