What you need to know

When you are looking to set up a new business there are lots of financial factors we can help you consider:

1. Business structure - will you be a sole trader, are you going into partnership with someone or do you want to set up as a limited company straight away?

2. Investment - Consider the initial outlay of setting up the business and whether you will need to raise finance, such as business premises and rates, hardware and infrastructure, product development, manufacturing, storage, staff costs. 

3. Resourcing - will you need to employ freelancers, contractors or recruit permanent employees on PAYE?

4. Potential sales and income - will you need to register for VAT? What about tax and National Insurance thresholds, cashflow and salaries?

All our starts ups use Xero, our online accounting software that makes the tracking and management of your finances a breeze. Find Out More

As a new business, our financial affairs seemed like a bit of a minefield. Azure encouraged us to use technology such as Xero and Receipt Bank, making it incredibly easy to keep on top of ongoing accounting and reporting on performance.

I'm extremely happy with the continuous communication from John at Azure. My last accountant never provided this level of care and insight into my business.
