We also know from experience that business owners can be wildly optimistic in their assessment of their business’ worth - it can come as a very nasty shock if the dreamt of sale proceeds don’t materialise. It’s equally true that an approach to business that serves well in the early days when winging it works fine can come badly unstuck when new hands are hired to support ambitious growth.
Over time, your business structure may or may not be appropriate for your growth aspirations, which could impact on your tax liabilities, risk exposure, compliance requirements and your ability to access finance. Perhaps you’ve received a lack of investment, a lack of information on management, or you’ve not got the advice you need to move your business forward from your accountant.
It’s time to change all that.
We bring a critical eye to your operation, working with you to identify and implement Key Performance Indicators (non-financial as well as financial) – a critical yet often overlooked business growth must-do that is essential in setting yourself up for growth success.
"Acconomy have been with us from the very beginning when I was an independent consultant. One of the key things I like about Acconomy is they have expanded their services as my requirements have expanded, they’ve kept pace with what I want. We now employ over 100 people. The proactiveness is great and whatever question you throw at Acconomy they come back quickly with a response. They're a great team to work with, very professional and they go out of their way to help you whatever the problem."

Working closely with trusted partners, our financial planning and wealth management services can help you make your money work harder for you, whether you’re planning your retirement, or wanting to safeguard your business for the future. Here are the areas we can support you with:
The key to business success is in informed decision making, and often you need a specialist who can provide the tools to enable you do just that. We can be your outsourced business advisor, providing you with the advice and guidance you need to grow your business, from day-to-day accounting tasks to expert growth and tax advice tailored to your business goals.
Unfortunately, many accountants don’t offer growth advisory at all or they don’t have the background to do a good job. That’s where Acconomy is different. Work with us and you’ll get expert guidance from our MD and other key members right from the start. We have an established track record in helping young entrepreneurial companies achieve their ambitions and take advantage of tools that helped them reach the next step, including R&D Tax Credits, funding and grant options, enhanced financial management, or employee share schemes.
When you work with us, you’ll get access to our specialist growth partners. We’ll introduce you to trusted specialists who can help you achieve your goals through obtaining funding, business development, legal services, wealth management and employee protection. If you’re interested in learning more, visit our Growth Hub.
We go beyond the day-to-day when it comes to compliance processing for startups and entrepreneurs. Work with Acconomy as your Intelligent Virtual Back Office and you’ll have clarity on your business finances through our expert planning and advice for the lifetime of your business. Our support provides both everyday accounting services as well as long-term high level planning to ensure the greatest opportunity for growth and success.
We’ll see where your business is today, and help you discover what it needs to thrive tomorrow. Our approach is cloud-based, meaning that we can easily (and securely) scale our support for you as your business grows, using tools like Xero, QuickBooks Online and Xledger to streamline your accounting processes.
Not only that, but we also provide specialist financial help through our trusted strategic partners, including funding, grant claims and tech stack development.
