New businesses

New Businesses

When you start a new business, we can help you with all those things which appear difficult but are really only down to experience. Things like funding, patents, obtaining premises and dealing with professional advisors are easy once you've done them a few times !

Finance and accounts

Finance & Accounts

This comes easy to some people and not to others. Writing business plans, understanding accounts and talking about money is something we are used to and doesn't scare us. Nor does the Bank Manager.

R&D and manufacturing

R & D and Manufacturing

This can seem to take for ever if you are not used to the process. Prototyping, independent testing, British and European Standards - and all this even before you've started to think about the tooling and how best to make the product.

Legal matters

Legal Matters

There are some very good solicitors in this country. It just seems sometimes that they are deliberately hiding from us ! With a lot of experience in this field, we believe we can spot the difference between good and bad and, more importantly, recognise when they are not needed at all.

Marketing and sales

Marketing & Sales

WE think it is a wonderful idea but how do we convince everyone else - particularly since we want them to pay us for it. In the new internet led world of the 21st century there are now some new exciting ways to reach your customers.

Government red tape

Government Red Tape

An area for our expert Associates. Sometimes it is really important to have an expert tell us how the rules are interpreted - whatever we think about them ourselves. If you want to change the rules, become a politician not a business owner. We can help you to keep on the right side of the law.

About Us

We specialise in helping small to medium sized businesses. We have decades of experience in all aspects of business and can pass on our advice and expertise to you without drowning you in jargon or talking down to you.

What We Do

We allow you to run your business while we help with all the peripheral problems such as legal or financial disputes, government red tape, and ways of getting products to market.

Our Associates

We have a number of expert associates with years of experience in their respective fields, which include marketing, accountancy, patent law, and health and safety.
