Warr & Co – Accounting Services For Businesses

As experienced small business accountants, Warr & Co have the expert knowledge which can help your small to medium business grow. Most people who start up in business do so because they have a good business proposition, not because they are experts in the legal, financial, and fiscal aspects of running a business. That’s where we step in.

Business Accountancy Services

We’re passionate about business finance, legislation and regulations so that you don’t have to be! Think of Warr & Co as an extension of your business, rather than an accounting service for your business. We specialise in accounting for a wide variety of business types, particularly SMEs, start-ups and growing small businesses. We often work with clients through the difficult early stages of growing a company from the ground up. Our team of business accountants have centuries of experience between them, having worked with thousands of UK businesses.

We understand that the business landscape in the UK can be exciting, but also daunting for those looking to live the dream and start their own business. The business financial landscape is always in flux, so much so that many new or smaller businesses struggle to keep up.

These factors can often seem overwhelming to an entrepreneur and this is where we can help, by evaluating your ideas in a constructive manner, helping you to develop them into a feasible business, and supporting your ongoing business development.

We can also help you:

  • Decide on the most suitable structure for your business – sole trader, partnership, limited liability partnership or limited company.
  • Prepare a business plan, cashflow projections, budgets, and trading forecasts to prove the financial viability of your business and demonstrate this to potential investors / bank.
  • Assess your finance requirements and advise on the best sources of finance.
  • Help you establish relationships with banks, solicitors etc via our well established network of contacts.
  • Complete any registration procedures with Companies House and HM Revenue and Customs.
  • Deal with company secretarial issues.
  • Set up an internal accounting system for complying with statutory requirements.

Whether your business is already up and running or you’re just starting out, you need a partner who understands small business accounting. Our experienced accountants can not only handle your tax, financials and VAT, but can also advise on many aspects of  business accounting.
