From start-ups to scale-ups, sole traders, family businesses and entrepreneurs, owner-managed businesses come in all structures and sizes, and each business faces unique challenges.
Just like the businesses, those who lead them all have their own aims and ambitions. At Old Mill we recognise that every business owner’s aspirations are individual to them; which is why we focus on building long-term relationships with clients, and gaining an understanding of your personal aims as well as your business objectives.
Once we have a full picture of what you want to achieve, our team can work with you to help you realise those goals. Alongside all the accountancy services you would expect – such as tax planning, Value-Added Tax (VAT) returns, bookkeeping, payroll services and compliance – we can help you to plan for future business growth using cash flow modelling and financial planning strategies. If you’re looking to expand your business through mergers and acquisitions, or seeking investment to take your company to the next level, our corporate finance team are on hand to guide you through the process.
You may be considering handing over the reins via a business sale or succession; our experienced staff will work with you to secure the best outcome for you and your business. And when you do decide to take a step back and enjoy the rewards of years of hard work, we can help you to plan for long-term financial security.
We deliver an individually tailored service to owner-managed businesses across the South West, which provides peace of mind while meeting all your personal and professional financial needs. Whatever your aims and aspirations – for yourself and your business – we look forward to helping you achieve them.
