Start-Up Business

Accounting Services for Start-Up Businesses

Being a start-up business means having to focus on the management and growth of your business. Not only that, but you must also spend time dealing with various issues that can occur during the daily operation of your business. When you’re devoting so much time to the urgent needs of your business, where can you possibly find the time to organise your accounting, understand the tax system or set your business up properly?

This is where Accountspoint comes in. Our wide range of start-up services saves you hours of time that you can then devote to running your business.

A Plan for Growth and the Right Support

Statistically 80% of new businesses fail in the first 5 years, and out of those remaining, 80% fail in the following 5 years.

The reason that start-up businesses succeed is because they not only have a healthy cash flow, but they’ve crafted a solid plan for growth. These two factors, when combined with the support from the right advisors can result in a business that enjoys success over the long term.

Your Business Type Affects your Taxes

The decision made about the structure of your business will affect how you are taxed. You will need to decide whether to structure your business as a sole trader / partnership or as a limited company.

Sole Traders

It’s simpler to set up as a sole trader, but you’re personally responsible for your business’s debts. You also have some accounting responsibilities.


A partnership is the simplest way for two or more people to run a business together. You share responsibility for your business’s debts. You also have accounting responsibilities.

Limited Companies

If you form a limited company, its finances are separate from your personal finances, but there are more reporting and management responsibilities.

We have helped many start-ups become successful, profit making businesses. Using our experience of working with micro businesses, and our expertise in business and taxation, we can help you avoid the mistakes many new businesses make, to help you succeed.
