Pre-Start Businesses

When you are a pre-start up you have lots of questions to ask. You are thinking about testing your ideas, getting going, understanding how any regulations affect your business, managing your cash flows and making sure you don’t pay more tax than you need to. There's lots to consider!


As part of our pre-start accountancy and business services, we offer a friendly ear, consider no question too small and offer affordable fixed fees to help you get going.

The good news is that you do not need to be an all round expert to succeed in business. All you need is the support of a skilled team and at Harlands we specialise in accountancy, tax and business advisory services for people who are about to start in business. We love working with enthusiastic new business owners and we are passionate about helping them make their new business a success.

We have the experience, focus and passion to help you start up and build a strong business for the future and will work with you to understand the challenges you face and always adapt our support to ensure you get the best possible value.

Starting a business is an exciting time when you get to kick start the ideas you have been developing.

It’s a time that is about creativity, devotion, passion and establishing skills and as part of our service we will assist you in ensuring that your energy is focussed on the key aspects of your work and not into any concerns around the legal and financial parts of running a business.

There some key reasons to invest in Harlands when starting up your new venture but quite simply it is because we become part of your team – someone you can trust and rely upon. We believe in building strong relationships with out clients, and working together as partners. Our experienced team have worked with a range of business owners across the North East developing their new venture, raising the much needed funding and building the business for a successful future. We can do the same for you.
