Are you a New Start Up? It is a sad fact that one third of new businesses fail within the first three years. We are here to ensure you don’t join this statistic!

New Start Ups

The four main reasons for business failure are:

Cash flow problems
Insufficient finance
Inadequate financial planning
Poor control systems.

At Root Accountants we will help you to consider, plan, and deal with, the following areas of your business:

  • Accounting records and preparation
  • Management accounts
  • Remuneration planning
  • Preparing and monitoring cash flow projections
  • Taxation Planning
  • VAT and Payroll.

How we can help

Working for yourself can be very rewarding and, in many cases, highly profitable too. It's a chance to do something that really interests you in a way that can fit in with your lifestyle and commitments. That's not to say that it is an easy option!

New business start-ups are notoriously fickle and many end in failure. You could end up working ridiculously long hours, dealing with all the red tape, and investing a lot of money, only for the business to fail in the end.

Fortunately, when it comes to starting your own business, there’s plenty of help and advice to help you avoid this. And Root Accountants are part of that success framework. Our Business Start Up Services include:

Financial Planning

Advice and assistance on what and how you draw money from your business, ensuring you are aware of VAT and PAYE financial obligations. We help you to take control of your new business.
