Starting your own business

Need help starting your business?

Get some key advice about how to structure your new business and keep proper records, among many other things.

Thinking about your start-up business?

It’s a dream held by many people, but put into practice by relatively few, so if you need help starting a business in the UK, now’s the time to take action. Here’s your chance to bring your dream to reality and benefit from concepts you’ve been thinking about for some time.

But it’s not without risk. More than 80% of new business start-ups fail within the first 5 years. So if you are going to take that leap of faith, it’s a great idea to get some first-class business brains on your side. And a first-class firm of accountants with lots of experience in business start-ups is a good place to start.

At HFM we have helped many fledgling businesses gain their wings and set them on the road to long-term business success.

In short, we’ll do everything we can to support your young business. There will be times (there always are!) when you’ll need to change tack slightly, or put more emphasis on a different area of business, but if we’re on hand you’ll find it a lot easier to make the right decision.
