Business Financial Planning

The value of pensions and investments can fall as well as rise, you may get back less than you invested.EIS’s and VCT’s invest in assets that are high risk and can be difficult to sell such as shares in unlisted companies. The value of the investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back what they originally invested, even taking into account the tax benefits.

Business financial planning & tax planning is something that all businesses should be doing:

A simple example of how we help businesses is by working with Shareholders and Directors to reduce the amount of corporation tax a business might need to pay by advising on what pension contributions could be made and when in line with the HMRC rules. This is simply called business tax planning

Another couple of examples of how we might help a business is by setting up group schemes for the benefit of the employees. This is proven to help with key employee retention. Or, by setting up insurance policies in a tax-efficient way for shareholders and company directors.

Maximising profitability is obviously very important for businesses and if you are not looking at how your business can operate efficiently, then you probably should be.

There is of course overlap between what your accountant does for your business and what a financial adviser might do, so, it is important to understand how a financial adviser can add value to your business; Essentially, we help businesses with protecting and growing assets, during the wealth accumulation stage and beyond.

We differ from other advisory firms in that we provide truly joined-up financial advice, meaning that we understand what ‘financial planning’ comprises of, i.e. working with a quality financial adviser, accountant & possibly legal firm, depending on your requirements. We bring these threads together to join up the dots and ensure that nothing is missed from your business and personal financial plan.
