Helping you prosper

Working with Universities, Sci-tech and high growth businesses

In the same period our Manchester office has aided a wealth of innovative, disruptive businesses in their growth in spite of, and in some cases as a result of, the COVID-19 pandemic.

In particular, we have seen some incredible innovation through our links with Universities across the North West. Over recent years, we have developed and fine-tuned our approach to supporting high-growth, innovative businesses with a scientific or technological focus. We’re invested in helping such businesses succeed, especially in these uncertain times.

As a top 20 firm, our Manchester office is well equipped to advise and guide a broad range of businesses with their accounting and finance needs, from the start of a bright idea right the way through to becoming a listed company.

What we do

Through a combination of modern technology and a wealth of in-house expertise, we are able to connect more effectively with businesses to;

  • Help navigate the start-up process, avoid common pitfalls and put the right systems in place
  • Accelerate business growth through expert-advised cash flow planning, business and financial strategy and access to funding
  • Provide a full range of support to ensure every opportunity is captured

Early Start-up Support

Founding a start-up is hard. You’re trying to develop a product or service, run a business, raise money and please lots of people. But it’s your resilience and determination that makes you a truly unique individual. 

Successful founders have one thing in common: they know what they do well and know what they need help on, and this is where we come in.  We’re not just here to help with the normal accounting side of things- we’re here to help you and your start-up head in the right direction, so challenge us and don’t be afraid to ask for help. 

CFO, FD and FC Services

As a Top 20 firm, we’re uniquely positioned to be able to be a helping hand to you as a CFO, FD or FC. You’re often the only accounting person in the company which can make it tricky when you need a second opinion or additional advice. We’ll act as your sounding board and help however we can. 

Having worked with many companies on their exit plans- whether, through an IPO or M&A activity, we’re well positioned to guide you towards that and help in any way that we can.
