Start-Up

Start-up

It is a scary place starting up in business, whether you come off the back of having been employed or straight off the back of having completed some formal qualifications.

You are swamped by your ‘friends down the pub’ along with the numerous get rich quick schemes you read about on Google and don’t know where to turn when it comes to getting “this idea” off the ground.

Combine this with the ideal goal of not getting arrested along the way by not doing anything illegal but also not having significant funds to invest can feel like you are in the middle of the perfect storm.

We’ve got your covered!

If we cannot offer you value for money with respect to your investment in us, we will refer you to another accountant who is cheaper than us. Don’t believe us, just head across to our Google reviews to see evidence of us having done this already.

Settled

Settled

Are you a business owner who is feeling settled with where you are, but not with your accountant? Do you feel like you’re just another transaction to them that is paying for their time?

If so, you’re not alone. Many business owners feel the same way. That’s why we’re here to offer you a different kind of accounting service.

At Tennick Accountants, we’re in the relationship business, not the transaction business. We believe that a strong relationship between an accountant and a business owner is essential for success.

That’s why we offer each of our clients two dedicated points of contact. This way, you’ll always have someone to turn to who understands your business and is there to support you.

Exit

Exit

Are you a business owner who is looking to exit your business? Do you want to make sure that you get the best possible price for your business?

The very sad statistic is that only 1 in every 2,222 business owners can exit their business when they want, how they want, with what they want.

We put this right with our clients with our three-step approach:

  • Financially, we ensure the numbers are correct 3 to 5 years in advance of sale by ensuring we have a valuation that meets the needs of the business owner looking to sell and this includes cash management and the extraction of this along the way, so you enjoy the journey and not just the end result.
  • Operationally, we have the business set up to sell so that the buyer cannot throw any unexpected curve balls in and there be any issues attracting and converting any interest when the time is right. This includes ensuring that no business is excessively reliant on any business owner which further supports our ethos of business owners getting more time out of the business with loved ones before they exit.
  • Retirement – this need not only come from one source and SHOULDN’T. Things go wrong and sadly there is sometimes little that can be done about this.  We need to make sure that the exit plan is robust and consistent of more than one source of income.

We can help you change that. We offer a comprehensive exit planning service that will help you get the most out of your business. Our service includes:

  • Financial planning
  • Tax planning
  • Business valuation
  • Business marketing
  • Business transition and sale

We work with you to develop a customized exit plan that meets your specific needs. We also provide ongoing support to help you stay on track and achieve your goals.

Here are some of the benefits of working with us:

  • We help you get the best possible price for your business.
  • We help you minimize your taxes.
  • We help you avoid costly mistakes.
  • We provide you with peace of mind so you can focus on your future.

Accountability and Transformation (included in growth and exit packages)

Do you want to take your business to the next level? If so, you need to be held accountable.

Only 10% of business owners have a plan. That means that 90% of businesses are operating without a clear direction. This can lead to a lot of wasted time and money.

Many business owners sadly spend more time planning holidays than do planning their own businesses.

We help business owners develop a plan and then hold them accountable to it. We do this by providing regular feedback and by tracking progress.

We don’t just look for problems, we take a leaf out of nature’s book and look at potential and help business owners realise this.

Accountability
tennick meeting

Instead, we adopt a multi-dimensional approach that looks at several ways to succeed but by way of building a one-step-at-a-time approach similar to the Great British cycling team’s approach which resulted in 38 medals (22 gold) across three Olympic Games.

Our approach has been proven to be effective. McKinsey & Company found that businesses that are held accountable are 6.4 times more likely to succeed and you can access their report here.

Look at some of these case studies across our website from those who have followed such a process alongside us.

If you are ready to take your business to the next level, contact us today. We can help you develop a plan and hold you accountable to it.
