Before making the leap to set up a new business venture, please review our ten tips. However, if you have already set up your new business we will be more than happy to provide you with a consultation on Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp or telephone to discuss your customised service package and price.
Quick setup essentials in 3 steps

Step 1 – All our packages include free formal registration for your business with HMRC/Companies House at no extra charge.

Step 2 – Setting up a business bank account. Starling bank and Tide are banks recommend by our customers.

Step 3 – Tracking sales and purchases is a legal requirement. Accounting systems start at around £15 per month (Xero) and are included as part of our package. However, if you are just starting up or are self-employed we do have some alternatives which cost less.
How to operate digitally…
 
Photograph all your receipts and invoices as you go with our mobile app in two clicks. That’s it! Our software will not only backup your data should HMRC require it, but it will be used to create your accounts.
 
For digital receipts from sites such as eBay and Amazon simply forward the email to a secure custom email address we’ll create for you and then our team will do the rest. Should we need any further information, we will contact you.
Real time with Xero and Quickbooks.
The mobile app displays all overdue payments both in and out of the business, bank balances, profit summaries and much more. It enables you to raise professional quotations and sales invoices on your mobile in minutes. Plus, customers are emailed a PDF invoice with your logo on it and they are given the option to pay you by credit card or PayPal.
