New to business?

If you are thinking of starting a new business or have just recently setup then you will no doubt have questions and worries that need answering. Our team at Middlers are dedicated to supporting you from the early stages of your business through tax registrations to business growth and changes down the line. Our range of services are tailored to give you and your business what you want, when you want it and how you want it.

Services

Legal Structure

Your first stumbling block for making a decision on may well be how to legally structure your new business. Getting this right can save you time and money in the long run so it’s important to understand the options. When you have your free initial meeting with Middlers, you will meet with your dedicated account manager who will always deal with you personally. During this initial meeting we will discuss and plan with you the future of your business and determine the best setup to meet your needs. Our advice is given in simple straight talk and our reports and guides are crystal clear and easy to follow. Ultimately the decision will be yours but we will guide you to a fully informed decision.

Legal Structure

Tax Registrations

Another set of early decisions to make are which relevant tax registrations your business needs. These can range from payroll registrations and VAT registrations to corporation tax and self assessment tax return registrations. The decisions are not always as straight forward as they first appear, for example you may find it beneficial to voluntarily register for VAT even though you trade below the compulsory registration thresholds. As always your dedicated account manager will guide you through the process ensuring you have a sound understand of each tax, the pros, cons and necessity of each tax and ultimately which to register for.

Tax Registrations

Bookkeeping

We are certified silver partners with Xero – the most popular cloud-based bookkeeping provider. Every single account manager and team member is fully certified so you can rest assured you have our technical help always at hand. We provide full training for free on our cloud based bookkeeping ensuring you get the best start. If you are not sure this is for you or don’t have the time while setting up your business (understandable!), then we also offer in-house bookkeeping to ensure your records are up to date without you needing to spend the time on it.

Don’t like the idea of cloud? Don’t worry, we still offer full support for traditional paper based bookkeeping, spreadsheets or whatever you feel most comfortable with. Your account manager will show you all the available solutions for your business type so you can make the most informed decision possible.

Bookkeeping

Accounts and Tax

The most basic reason a business typically partners with an accountant. Our end of year accounts process will leave you with a full understanding of how your business performed over the year, what the financial position is and what your relevant tax liabilities are. Of course this will not come as a shock to you as we pride ourselves on being real time accountants, feeding information back to you all year as you need it.

With authorised agent access to HMRC and authentication with Companies House (for limited companies), whatever your accounts and tax needs are at the year-end we will take care of it from start to finish.

Accounts and Tax

Raising Finance

When starting a new business it’s important to get off to the best possible start to maximise your chances of success. Raising finance for equipment purchase, property or even a small overdraft to ease the initial cashflow can be critical to ensuring your business succeeds its first years. Our business plans, cash flow projections, profit forecasting and executive analysis reports can ensure you walk into meetings at banks and finance providers with a sound understanding of your figures and full preparation of documents to have the best possible chance at securing that finance.

Raising Finance

Compact Advice

The above services can sound complicated and time consuming, they’re not! Your initial meeting typically takes around 1 hour and covers everything you need to get up and running. Our years of experience ensure we get the message across as straight forward as possible so you can fully understand each step of the process. If at any point you find it complicated or don’t understand a point made, just shout! Your account manager will happily break it down further for you. Your understanding = our success!

The Beauty Rooms - Kylie Clark

Starting my venture with beauty rooms back in 2012 was extremely daunting as I had little experience in financial accounting, tax and payroll responsibilities. I searched for an accountant that could take care of this part so I could concentrate on running my business. Many accountants I had contacted spoke in jargon and left me more confused and felt out of my depth about what I was taking on. I then found Middlers accountants, Andy and Lynsey who not only do a fantastic job in ensuring my tax and VAT duties are met but they have always explained everything in simple terms along the way so that I fully understand what they are doing and what i expected of me as the business owner. The bookkeeping systems they set up for me are so easy to use and full training is given to ensure I am able to use on my own and that it fits with my weekly responsibilities in running the business. They are always an email or phone call away and no question is too silly. As my business has grown they have been flexible by tailoring their services to suit each stage and have been extremely helpful to advise on big changes I have to make within the business. The commitment to their clients is obvious and they are invaluable part of my business with the knowledge and support that is provided.

I contacted Middlers accountants because I’d had problems and lost confidence in my previous accountant. After one phone call I took my business to them. Very professional, quick and reliable correspondence and they get the job done.
