Our Services
Business Start-up Advice

We understand that starting a new business venture should be an exciting time and so we feel it is important not only to discuss your business proposition with you but guide and support you through those early stages to implement your vision.

Our experience at the start will help ensure you have the right structure for your enterprise in line with your future goals and aspirations so that your energy can be focussed on achieving these while we ensure the financial and compliance aspects are addressed.

You can benefit from our specialist knowledge and experience, knowing that you have a key contact and team at Ellacotts providing the right assurance and support.

Structure & Strategy

We like to get involved early on to  discuss with you your business plan, this will provide us with enough information to devise a strategic plan going forward and also on how best to structure the new venture, whether it be in a limited company, a partnership or as a sole trader. These are important decisions to get right early on as they can be costly to change at a later date.

Raising Finance & Cash Flow Forecasts

Often new businesses need some initial cash flow investment, we can assist in calculating what level of funding you may require and prepare forecasts which potential banks or investors would like to see before investing.

IR35 Status

When incorporating into a new company which is to provide services, this can often lead to issues which are covered my IR35. This is a complicated part of law with many grey areas, we can help you navigate these issues and advise you on if you may fall under this legislation and what you can do to mitigate your risks.

HMRC Registration

We can assist in completing your registrations with all the departments in HMRC, from Corporation tax, VAT and payroll, this can free you up to concentrate on getting the business up and running.
