FINANCIAL & BUSINESS SUPPORT

BUSINESS STARTUP
You want to start a business because you are an entrepreneur with a great idea and the vision to realise it. And we’re here to help you do just that. We want you to focus on what you do best – building your business – while we provide all the necessary background support.

COMPANY SECRETARIAL
Eacotts’ Company Secretarial Department acts for many Limited Companies, preparing and processing the numerous documents that are necessary to comply with statutory requirements. We deal with all aspects of company secretarial activity, including company formation, striking off and dissolution.

MONEY MANAGEMENT
We are able to undertake a full review of the banking services that you use: advise you of their cost effectiveness and efficiency relating specifically to your business. A written report outlining our recommendations will be provided. We are also able to provide additional help with the preparation of presentations to financial institutions and, if required, can be directly involved in client/banker negotiations.

CORPORATE FINANCE
We provide advice and assistance with raising money for a variety of purposes ranging from working capital to asset finance and venture capital. We will carry out financial due diligence for potential acquisitions and advise on tax efficient structures for both acquisitions and disposals.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Mediation can be a faster, better, cheaper way of resolving a dispute. It gives each of the parties the opportunity to talk confidentially to a mediator, to avoid the high cost of litigation, to avoid the stress and distraction of a long drawn out dispute and to have some ownership of the settlement that may be reached.

FORENSIC SERVICES
Eacotts regularly provide forensic and investigative accounting services to organisations throughout the UK. Our specialists have many years of experience in this field and can act either as Advisor or Expert Witness, attending Court to give evidence when needed.

Drawing on his extensive knowledge and experience he can provide a range of solutions for financially distressed companies.

INSOLVENCY – PARTNERSHIPS
Eric Brightwell, one of our former partners, has been an insolvency practitioner for over 30 years and can deal with all aspects of recovery and insolvency, acting for partners of LLPs or conventional partnerships. Drawing on his extensive knowledge and experience, he can provide a range of solutions for financially distressed businesses.
 
INTERNATIONAL SERVICES
As the world of trade and communications grows smaller, more and more businesses are developing international dimensions to their operations. For many businesses this can be a perplexing area, with a mass of unfamiliar regulations and procedures to consider. We can guide you through this maze and help you set up and maintain smooth cross-border operations.

OUTSOURCED BUSINESS SUPPORT
In today’s challenging and dynamic business climate, many firms are giving serious consideration to outsourcing certain functions to external agencies. Resourcing issues or skills shortages may mean it is not possible to handle all your requirements in house, and outsourcing can offer an attractive and value for money alternative.

PERSONAL FINANCE
We can provide a full and detailed personal financial plan, incorporating advice on income, capital growth, tax considerations and bequeathing your assets. We will liaise with any other adviser you might have to ensure a total, proactive service at all times.

PROCUREMENT CONSULTANCY
There are many cost reduction companies who can review your suppliers, contracts and expenditure. However Eacotts is very pleased to be able to offer the services of Derrick Sequeira, a past chairman of the Berkshire Branch of The Institute of Directors as a specialist procurement consultant.
