Start-Up Businesses

Most entrepreneurs start-up in business because they have a good business proposition and the enterprise and commitment to see it through, not because they are experts in the legal, financial, and economic aspects of running a business. That’s where we come in.


We believe in building strong relationships with our clients, and working together as partners. Our start up service doesn’t end when we provide market leading accountancy services.

The time we spend working on your business means that we know who you are, your strengths, weaknesses and potential opportunities, and we use that understanding to contribute. We will invest time in meeting with you and talking about your business

Starting a business is an exciting time when you get to advance the fantastic ideas you have been developing. It’s a time that is about creativity, devotion, passion and establishing skills. At Harlands 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.

We do not like to see our start-up clients just once a year; we like our clients and enjoy talking to them. Regular meetings are an opportunity to provide support and guidance when it is needed. We can chat through the figures, check on the progress and make plans to move forward. It also means that you have an opportunity to ask any questions that you might have.

For new start-up entrepreneurs we can advise on a range of accountancy and business growth services including the following;

  • Business set up
  • Raising finance
  • Locating business property
  • Choosing and working effectively with a bank
  • Setting up your financial systems

Our approach is to help you take control of your business idea and build a successful venture for many years to come. If this is what you are looking for in an accountant then read on.

Fran Williams, Perspective Business Centres Ltd

Deciding to work with Harlands for our start up business was a thought about decision as money was tight and they cost a little more than perhaps other traditional accountants.  The key to making the right decision was their wealth and breadth of experience in so many aspects of the financial world and they have proven invaluable in helping me establish and build a better business and staying in control of the process during the stressful, time pressured and out of control period that everyone has to go through to step out of their comfort zone and start a new business.

Huw Evans, MD, Arnia Ltd

From the very first meeting Phil was able to give us great advice on how to best structure the accounting and management reporting requirements for a VC backed business. We have always received solid advice and appreciate all the time that Phil invests with us to fully understand our business and its changing needs. Furthermore, the business case created was paramount to the investment raised as part of round 2.
