Early Stage Businesses
No two owner-managed businesses are the same. Each one will have different goals, needs and strategies, be it growth, owner wealth maximisation or profitability.
As a business grows and matures, the services that are required will change, and the focus of the owner may change from business growth, to consolidation, to retirement and making provision for the family. Brebners will be with you every step of the way.
You can be sure, with the personal service that Brebners offers, that you, as an owner, will get the advice most relevant to you quickly. We pride ourselves on ensuring each client has a contact partner, who is the point of reference for all queries and services.
If you wish to administer your monthly accounts in house, we have a team of Sage Line 50 experts who are more than happy to come to your premises to set up Sage and discuss appropriate safeguards, controls, and procedures. We can leave you to run your own affairs for the year, or review the accounts every quarter and help prepare the VAT return to ensure continued compliance.
We also run Sage Line 50 in house for many clients, processing all transactions, and dealing with customer and supplier queries should you require this fully managed service. This gives the clients confidence in their management information, and gives them more time to concentrate on business strategy, rather than worry about management accounts and VAT compliance.
During 2011 we have introduced Cloud-based accounting systems for some of our clients. We consider that this accounting solution is appropriate to many business, and expect that the number of clients using such systems will increase rapidly over the next few years.
Because of our knowledge of your business, we are in a unique position to assist you in exceptional circumstances should you require it, such as in the event of maternity leave, or unforeseen loss of your internal accountancy staff.
We welcome early stage businesses to Brebners, who have already set up their business either themselves, or with poor or incomplete professional advice. We work with such clients to mitigate any damage caused by inherited problems and poor planning.

- Corporate tax planning and compliance
