Business startup

Putting your new business venture on a sure footing

You want to start a business because you are an entrepreneur with a great idea and the vision to realise it.

And we're here to help you do just that.

We want you to focus on what you do best - building your business - while we provide all the necessary background support.

Here are just a few of the ways we can help you get started:

  • Preparing a comprehensive business plan
  • Determining the best structure of your business: sole trader, partnership, limited liability partnership, or limited company
  • Where appropriate, assisting with company formation and company secretarial duties
  • Registering your new business with HM Revenue and Customs and where appropriate helping with your VAT registration
  • Establishing relationships with banks, insurers, etc
  • Preparing cashflow projections and assessing finance needs
  • Preparing and submitting finance applications
  • General bookkeeping, VAT, and payroll duties
  • Tax planning
  • Management accounts
  • Annual accounts and (where necessary) annual audit

Find the right funding for your business

We appreciate the challenges of sourcing funding for a new business. It is no longer a case of going to see the bank manager and the number of funding sources and products available can be daunting.

The partners at Whittles have been working with Capitalise which has established a marketplace where lenders, SMEs and their advisors can join forces in comparing and executing loans, making it easier for businesses to access funding.

Capitalise created a platform where businesses can find, compare and select the right lender in less than 3 minutes.  Not only will you find lenders who specialise in your industry but you’ll also find lenders most likely to give you an offer.

Need further advice? We can help

Funding success requires more than just completing an application. You’ll need to provide information that is easily understood and is attractive to lenders. We can support you in all stages of the funding process and position your company in the best possible light for securing finance.
