New Businesses


If you are not an Accountant, then starting a new venture is a very daunting task. Apart from having to implement a system to monitor business transactions, regulatory requirements have to be met. The best way (based on feedback from clients) we can help you, if you are considering a Start-up venture, is to give you the confidence and freedom to go out and generate revenue without having to worry about administration issues. That's what you will pay us to do. Contact for more information.

Why we are different

We take a genuine interest in the performance of all client businesses. This could sound like a PR exercise if it wasn't for the fact we include, as standard and free of charge, interim Management Accounts, if necessary, to analyse how the business is performing during the first year. This enables us to react quickly to any adverse trading issues you may be experiencing and advise on the best course of action. After all, your success, is our success!

First Impressions

With advances in electronic communications, the need for your Accountant to be local is a thing of the past. An initial meeting at your place or ours gives us the opportunity to introduce ourselves and we will be responsible for looking after you throughout the year.

We can help you with:

Making the most of modern technology

We will look at the legal set-up and ambitions of the business and advise on the most appropriate structure
such as Sole Trader, Partnership or Limited Company. We can also, on your behalf, register you with an off- the-
shelf or completely new limited company and carry out all the relevant secretarial work.


Where capital expenditure is required we can advise on the best methods and supply you with details of financial sources.
We can also help prepare a Business Plan if one has not already been done. If you are seeking investment, it will increase your
chances of success by having a well thought out, detailed Plan.

Taking away the riskRegulatory Requirements

We can advise on all financial aspects of PAYE , NI contributions and VAT;  check your legal responsibility for
Health and Safety; look at environmental issues; advise on Employee rights; check that premises are suitable
for the business venture with local Planning departments; look at intellectual property rights such as company
name and logo; and make sure you have all the relevant licence's to carry out business.

Record Keeping

In the early days, it is likely a manual bookkeeping system will be sufficient to keep track of your transactions. If we are doing
your bookkeeping, then you do not have to worry about keeping records. Send us your receipts and statements and we do the
rest. However, you do not need to understand bookkeeping to be able to complete Bookkeeping Templates supplied to you by
Bradburn & Co. By completing and emailing them to us, it helps keep our costs down and has the added benefit of training
you to become more self sufficient, if that is the route you want to take in the future. If a business system is required, please see
the Consultancy page.


You can make Bradburn & Co responsible for all aspects of business and personal taxation including PAYE, NI, VAT,
Corporation Tax (where appropriate) and personal tax assessments. If we are responsible for most of your bookkeeping and
accounts preparation, it is likely we would take responsibility for your taxation issues. However, if you are keen to become more
self sufficient, then we are always willing to offer training and advice when required.
