Manufacturing

Companies operating in a manufacturing environment need experienced, professional advisers to help them steer a steady course.

The manufacturing sector is plagued with uncertainty, and is often hostage to factors beyond its control such as fierce global competition, interest rates, currency values, employment levels, and educational training.

  • Minimise risks from pricing and supply fluctuations
  • Optimise your stock control
  • Make important investment decisions
  • Arrange acquisitions, mergers, or disposals
  • Raise finance
  • Manage cashflow through interest rate exchange and rate fluctuations
  • Handle foreign currency transactions

And, of course, we can help with all your accounting, tax, and audit requirements.

Whatever your business structure – sole trader or a limited company – we can help you manage your profitability through our specialised services.

Retail

More than ever retailers need sound financial advice and the support of a team of professionals who can help them maintain their market share.

The retail sector has always been one of the most competitive business environments to operate in, but with the rapid growth of direct marketing, telephone sales, Internet trading, and overseas competition (especially from mainland Europe), more than ever retailers need sound financial advice and the support of a team of professionals who can help them maintain their market share.

We have considerable experience acting for the retail sector, and understand clearly their special requirements – especially the need for real-time, proactive advice on how to maintain and improve their position.

We can help you maximise your profitability through improvements in your stock control, purchase re-ordering, and reconciliation procedures, and where appropriate advise on the installation of computerised systems.

Perhaps the biggest bane of a retailer’s life is the stringent demands of the VAT regime. We can relieve you of a lot of unnecessary time and expense by advising on the most appropriate scheme, and handling your VAT planning and administration.

Whether you are a small shopkeeper or a High Street retailer, a mail order company or an Internet trader, our team of experienced professionals are here to help you achieve your business objectives.
