Choosing Simply Additions as your accountant

We have helped many new businesses to cope with their first year of trading so we understand exactly what is involved and are fully aware of the many difficulties you will face.  We can share some of the lessons learnt by others so you can make faster progress and help you to avoid some of the pitfalls along the way. We listen to what you hope to achieve from your new business and ask you questions so we can understand how this fits in with your home life and your financial situation.  Continuing on we can then help you as your business evolves though business improvement projects, business plans and preparation of monthly management accounts.
