Business Planning

We offer comprehensive financial planning for business owners and directors

Our team of financial planning and tax experts work closely with you and your co-directors and shareholders to advise, create and implement a plan that works for you on a personal and company level, freeing you to focus your attention on building and growing your business.

As a business owner or director your pension arrangements are likely to be be more complex as you need to manage the interplay between your pension scheme and your company. We offer solutions that give you greater control and flexibility over the way in which you manage your pension.

Protecting your family and business should you or one of your key team members suffer an illness or die suddenly isn’t a pleasant thing to think about, but we will help ensure sufficient plans are in place should the worst happen.

We recognise the need for all of your professional advisers (such as accountants and solicitors) to work together effectively for the smooth delivery of your agreed financial plan. We have a wide network of professional advisers and contacts that we can introduce you that can assist with everything from mentoring and business coaching to specialist tax planning and capital raising. 

We will work with the company and its professional advisers to understand what structures need to be put in place to provide clarity over the operation of the business and how shares in the business are dealt with in the event of sale, retirement or death. We understand that building and running a business is a big investment and with the right professional advice and tax planning you can maximise the return on your investment. 

Wherever your priorities lie, we will ensure your business finances are efficient and effective whilst you focus on what you do best.
