Shenward helps a diverse range of clients with a diverse range of needs. This is especially true of our Advisory Practice, which provides corporate finance and transaction services, business restructuring, risk, and management consulting services to clients navigating an exceptional range of challenges, changes, and opportunities. We are proud to be a member of the Business Finance Advice Scheme specialising in preparation and review of business plans, helping business start-ups, small-scale equity issues and applying for bank loans and overdrafts.
As a business owner, a robust business plan is beneficial to your business and can help it achieve the business objectives that you have set. We find that many business owners don’t have the time to write a business plan, or, simply do not know where to start. That’s where we come in. As your accountants, we can help you when it comes to business planning.
As your professional advisers, we are strongly positioned to assess your business, its structure and your plans for the future. The key areas where we can help are:
– Restructure of your current business structure to help take advantage of efficient tax strategies and operational structures
– Growth, succession planning, and business continuity
– Due diligence when buying or selling a business
– Raising finance and cash flow forecasting
– Implementation of accounting systems
– Assessment of your corporate governance and risk management
– Implementation of tax efficient employee remuneration packages through share incentive packages
The decision to incorporate a business is usually based around advice on minimising tax. We have a great deal of experience in incorporating businesses and in some cases, it has saved our clients large amounts in tax.
The amount of tax you would save is dependent on your individual situation. If you would like to talk to someone about your circumstances and the benefits of becoming incorporated, then contact us for a free initial chat about how we can help.
We understand that it can often be a daunting process and that for you, it’s important that your own personal reasons for buying or selling your business are realised.
You might be looking to grow your business organically or through the purchase of another. If this is the case, our strong reputation and high experience in finding the right business to buy based on your needs will be invaluable. You may be thinking about selling your business, with a view to retiring or starting out on a new business venture. We are experienced in selling businesses and achieving the desired outcomes for the owner.
We have strong relationships with banks and equity providers which we use to raise funds for development purposes, equity release and financial restructuring. We carefully consider the tax implications to ensure that every transaction we make is as tax efficient as possible, helping you as the buyer or seller of a business to get the most out of the deal.
We also offer the services of an experienced finance director to help your growing business. This can be extremely beneficial as you do not need to incur the cost of employing an individual. We understand the financial constraints that affect many small and medium businesses so you can use our time as necessary.
As your business grows and develops you may need the services of a non-executive director, especially if you want to list on the Stock Exchange. Our managing partner, Rajeev, has extensive experience working with businesses in this capacity. If you require such services, please get in touch for an initial consultation.
