Start Up

Setting up a new business is an exciting time although it can seem daunting at first. There is a lot to do and so much that is new: how to structure your business, how to register your company, setting up a business bank account, how to complete a tax return and deliver statutory accounts, paying your staff and suppliers, what policies you need to have in place, and the hundred and one other responsibilities that go with running a business.

We’re here to help you every step of the way. Langbrook Finance offer a number of essential services designed to support new business owners.

London chartered accountants with the business and technical skills to support your business


Running and growing a business is a demanding activity at the best of times, and sometimes we all need a bit of support. This is where Langbrook Finance can help.

We’re on hand to support our clients with a range of bespoke services designed to help you manage and grow your business in a profitable and sustainable way.

We can help you gain extra insight into the performance of your business. Working closely with the directors, we can help you gain even greater understanding of:

  • Business income.
  • Business margins and the profitability of the business.
  • How much money you can draw from the business.
  • How much money you have for investment (for instance, in additional resources).
  • Your business tax bill.
  • What appropriate KPI’s for your business could be.

We can also advise on how these figures are likely to affect performance for the coming year, enabling you to plan ahead effectively, for instance by generating a one-year profit forecast.

Key Performance Indicators are essential to understanding how your business is positioned and where it is capable of going. But choosing which KPIs to measure is just as important – the metrics that are key to one business can be less significant to another. Moreover, you may want some help interpreting them, in terms of the practical subsequent business steps to take.

Regardless of which indicators you decide are important, regular monthly monitoring and analysis of your chosen KPIs invariably results in a much deeper understanding of your business: you’ll uncover valuable insights, which will lead to better business decisions and a more profitable company.

Strategic planning can significantly reduce a business’s corporation tax bill and thus increase retained profits

Tax Planning and Company Returns

Strategic planning can significantly reduce a business’s corporation tax bill and thus increase retained profits. Corporation tax is an annual tax levied on your company’s net taxable profits, not necessarily your reported profits.

Every business must prepare tax computations based on their annual accounts, and then file these with the tax authorities. It is important that sufficient planning goes into these calculations because that can reduce your corporation tax liability by including tax relief for all allowable expenses, including research & development.. Experienced accountants will produce your company tax return and submit the return to HMRC on your behalf.

We also help with directors’ personal tax.

Benchmarking compares your organisation’s services to those of similar organisations.

Benchmarking services

Benchmarking compares your organisation/services to similar organisation/services. At its simplest, it helps you to compare statistics and control costs. More sophisticated benchmarking looks at process design and business strategy.

Every organisation can use benchmarking. It questions what you are doing, identifies opportunities for improvement and often provides the momentum necessary for implementing change. We can provide comprehensive reports that help you compare your organisation with comparable organisations and identify improvement opportunities.

We can also provide you with regular management accounts

We can help you create a business plan

Business plans

Many potential start-up businesses are daunted by the prospect of compiling a business plan. But it is not an intimidating process — and a good business plan focuses the mind as well as helping to secure finance and support.

The business plan will clarify your main business idea and define your long-term objectives. It provides a blueprint for running the business and a series of targets to check your progress against. It is also vital for convincing your bank — and possibly key customers and suppliers — to support you.

We can help you create a business plan – ensuring you include the right items and that you correctly calculate your financial forecasts.
