Start-up Accountants London
Why use an accountant for your start-up?
Whether you’re a sole trader or a small, limited company, investing in the right services can help to support your business and facilitate personal growth. Accounts and finances, in particular, can be increasingly challenging to handle as your business grows. This is where you will benefit from having an expert accounting firm manage your financials.
Hiring trained accountants for start-ups can provide access to high-quality accounting services that offer value for money, both regionally and in London, for tax management and more.
If you want access to the best accounting software for your start-up, plus advice and support from experienced and highly trained accountants, outsourcing your accounting function might be the best decision to make for your company.
Do start-ups need accountants?
Truthfully? No, there’s no legal requirement for you to have an accountant. However, for most new business start-ups, time and money are in great demand. This means you don’t have the additional time required to commit to managing bookkeeping, accounting, annual accounts and VAT returns, alongside all the other responsibilities in your job.
At start-up businesses, employees often wear multiple hats. While that flexibility is essential, without dedicated support it can be easy for tax accounting responsibilities and finance to fall through the gaps.
While trained accountants aren’t necessary for you to succeed, they can help support your company operations and ensure your accounts are up to date.
Working with an accountancy firm is one way for small businesses and limited companies to relieve that pressure. Hiring a business finance specialist in-house might not be affordable, especially with the additional costs of accounting software to factor in.
Instead, outsourcing to a professional accountancy service for tax advice, accounting, and bookkeeping is far more feasible.

What can our accountants do for business start-ups?
Self-assessment tax returns
Business VAT returns
You’ll need to use high-quality accounting software to complete VAT and tax returns for your business. Working with an outsourced accountant ensures that your VAT and other tax liabilities are taken care of and that all legal accounting requirements are met for any business tax you owe.
When should a small business look to employ an accountant?
Whether you’re a new business or have a business plan prepared for establishing a start-up shortly, it’s a good idea to bring in specialist accountants early. By hiring dedicated and expert accountants, you benefit from expertise and insight you might not have in-house.
Ensuring access to expert support and advice is an excellent place to start when it comes to tax, payroll, and even funding applications.
Employing an accountant in line with your business growth strategy is a good idea for already established businesses or sole traders. Accountancy companies can match services and support to the scale and size of your business as it grows.
This ensures that you have the consistent level of support needed for successful, active financial management as your company changes.
What to look for when choosing an accountant for your start-up business
Experience in working with smaller companies
It is beneficial to have a partnership with an accountant that already knows how smaller businesses work. A knowledgeable small business expert will understand your specific challenges and requirements and make sure that you hit the ground running regarding tax, bookkeeping and other financial needs. The benefit of that knowledge means that your experience is stress-free.
Knowledge across a range of accounting services
As a small business, much like your internal office team, you'll likely need dedicated and professional accountants that can do a bit of everything and advise you on important aspects relating to the needs of start-ups. While each task will take less time than for a large-scale operation, everything still needs to be completed. The ideal accountancy service can provide high-quality services across the board.
Access to professional software
Accounting software can be a costly expense for your business. Working with an accounting firm that already has access to top industry accounting software can make your job easier. By outsourcing to a registered accountant, you're also outsourcing additional expenses for your business.
Ability to grow and adapt to your business needs
Start-ups rarely stay the same size and shape they were at their initial launch for long. An accountancy service needs to be able to adapt to these changes and areas of growth. The best accountants for a small business are the ones that are flexible, adaptable, and able to step up when needed to provide the best service to their clients.
