Accountancy for tech companies and start-ups

Supporting your growth story

Expert advice to build your business

Behind every brand-new business there’s a burning passion to succeed - but longevity depends on using your head, not just going with your heart.

More than half of start-ups fail within the first four years, and it’s vital to build profitability into your business from the very beginning if you’re to avoid becoming another statistic

From the formation of your limited company to the set-up of your payroll, getting early decisions right will be crucial, and we’re here to help you make them.

We’ll also get you set up with specialist accounting software designed to ease the book-keeping burden - giving you more time to focus on building your empire.

How we help

Much more than just a traditional end-of-year accountant, we can give your business the support it needs from the off - guiding you through the incorporation process, VAT registration, PAYE and more.

And with the real-time cloud accounting platform, Xero (which gives us live access to your numbers at any time), we’re on hand to support your business-decision making at a moment’s notice.

The leading Xero accountant in Birmingham, we’ve been working with technology companies and start-ups across the Midlands for years - and we're proud of how the region has grown.

Nothing would please us more than to play a part in your growth story too…

  • Core accounting: Statutory accounts preparation, corporation and self-assessment tax returns, quarterly VAT returns, payroll & auto-enrolment and bookkeeping services.
  • Management accounts: Regular reporting and reviews on your businesses key performance indicators (KPIs).
  • Business growth advice: As your virtual CFO, we'll help you develop your business plan and review progress regularly, offering expert financial advice.
  • Xero: We’ll supply Xero’s online accounting package, plus help you get set-up properly and provide year-round support with add-ons when required.
  • EMI & S(EIS) Schemes: Our specialist tax experts can work with you to determine the most appropriate scheme for your business, and get all the documentation in place.
  • Customer acquisition costs (CAC): This includes sales, expenses, and marketing. If most of your incoming finances come into your account and go straight out again, there’s something amiss.
  • Lifetime value (LTV): This measures the value of each customer to your business over a given time period. Implement this KPI alongside CAC and you’ll be able to easily track your growth.
  • Burn rate: This is the negative cashflow of your business. Most applicable for start-ups, this KPI will indicate how quickly you’re burning through your cash.
  • Monthly recurring revenue (MRR): For any SaaS, subscription or service-based business model, your MRR is key to building a stable platform for growth.

All done? Great – then give us a call and we’ll go through all the services you need in more detail. And of course if you can’t decide, or you’re not sure exactly what you need, we’re happy to help.
