Life never stands still and neither does business. A vital part of being in business is to make plans to achieve the goal that you are striving towards. We can work with you to help you along the way to your ambitions.
Whether you’re starting out and need finance but don’t know where to start with a Business Plan, a struggling business needing to make urgent changes for survival or a successful business trying to achieve even more we can help. We will help you put together a realistic plan and work with you over time to maximise the potential from your business.
We aim to empower you by setting systems in place to give you essential Management Information so that you begin to run your business – instead of letting it run you!
Poor book-keeping and accounting systems will hold your business back. With some close support we can help you to create and maintain better records and help you to create your own internal monthly accounts. We can then work with you to analyse what the results are showing and how they can be improved. Whether you need some initial help and then telephone support or a full “hands-on” monthly service we can help.
|“We opened our 1st depot back in 2001 and appointed Emslie Bird as our accountants on a recommendation. It turned out to be a very good move indeed. Emslie Bird have been with us since and grown with our company which now has 8 outlets and a turnover in excess of £3m. They produce monthly management accounts which are invaluable to us in terms of strategy, profitability and cash flow, and giving us much needed credibility with financial institutes which is so valuable in today’s economic climate. In addition they also manage our payroll (for 60 staff) and handle all Y/E issues such as filing accounts online, Corporation Tax, personal tax issues etc. They are always professional (no matter how familiar you get with them) and in nine years, I cannot recall an instance where they have ‘fouled up’. Everyone is a pleasure to deal with and nothing seems to come as too much effort for them. I would have no hesitation in recommending Emslie Bird to anyone, whether they were starting up or looking to change from their existing accountant.”|
Added Value Services
We constantly strive to add value to our services starting with simply preparing your end of year accounts as soon as practical after the year end. This means that the accounts are still relevant to you as well as fulfilling the compliance requirements.
We can provide assistance with company formations and company secretarial issues as well as a registered office address if required. We can also help you to decide whether you should be a sole trader, partnership, limited company or even Limited Liability Partnership to match your business with the most suitable business type.
We believe our clients should have maximum protection from Revenue enquiry costs and provide a company scheme to ensure insurance is in place for all. Details of the scheme are provided to all clients on engagement.
We do get asked about other areas of finance such as insurance, investments, pensions, mortgages, wills and estate planning that we ourselves cannot provide but we have a network of professionals ready to ensure our clients always have access to the best advice.
|“Emslie Bird has acted for a wide range of our commercial and family interests for a period of some fifteen years.

We offer a full range of services to ensure you and your business remain compliant with the requirements of HM Revenue & Customs and Companies House. Over the last few years there has been an increase in the number of fines that can be levied for late payments and late submission of information. Making sure a business meets all of its deadlines is crucial to maintaining an easy relationship with the authorities and avoiding unnecessary penalties. We can work with you to resolve any issues you might have and ensure trouble free compliance in future.

Emslie Bird was the company we first approached 3 years ago when we were a new start up. The advice and guidance they gave us and have continued to give us has been first class. They have always helped us with any issues we have encountered, explaining and simplifying everything in terms that we could understand. Their support has been essential for us to continue to grow our business. They are very efficient, providing an excellent service at a realistic price. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone in the business community.
