Our new website!

1 January 2014

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new website. It's not completely finished; there is still a bit of work to do but are so excited by our new site that we couldn't hold it back any longer.

Abacus have moved on a long way over the past few years and our new website is testament to that.

We wanted a new website to better collaborate with our partners, clients and associates on that which we are most passionate about: sharing our knowledge, providing friendly advice and preventing costly mistakes.

Please contact us to let us know what you think of our new website - all comments and feedback are welcome. Please also let us know if you would like to make any suggestions or cannot find something.

Many thanks for your feedback and we look forward to hearing from you!

Starting a small business - financial considerations

30th December 2013

Your idea for starting a business may suggest a higher income, more control and freedom but to ensure that you have addressed all the dangers that exist, spending time and thinking through the following, before you begin trading, will be one of the most important exercises you can carry out:

  • Completing a realistic business plan
  • Company structure - sole trader, limited company?
  • Registering with the tax authorities - HMRC, VAT
  • Cash flow for the first few years
  • Having an organised financial reporting system

For relative low costs, seeking professional financial advice will reap benefits in the long-term.
