Business Start-Up

Start up

Most people who start up in business do so because they have a good business proposition, not because they are experts in the financial aspects of running a business. These factors can often be quite daunting to the entrepreneur and this is where we can help by evaluating your ideas and helping you develop them into a feasible business.

We can also help you:

  • decide on the most suitable structure for your business (i.e. sole trader, partnership or limited company).
  • prepare a business plan, cashflow projections, budgets and trading forecasts to prove the financial viability of your ideas and demonstrate this to the bank / potential investors.
  • assess your finance requirements and access the most appropriate source of finance.
  • help you establish relationships with banks, solicitors, etc via our well established network of contacts.
  • carry out registration procedures with Companies Office and the Revenue.
  • assist in the setting up an internal accounting system which complies with statutory requirements.
Remember - Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going.

To get you started we can provide you with a Business Start-up Guidance Plan.
