TECH & INNOVATION.
Empowering Tech entrepreneurs to start-up, scale-up, fund and exit.
HOW WE CAN HELP:
You might say that stereotypically accountants aren’t the most ‘tech savvy’, however our obsession for automation, innovation and anything ‘geek’ means that working with tech clients is a real passion of ours. We have clients in the tech space that range from early stage start-ups to global brands which means we offer a seamless service from forming the company to scaling and selling.

- We can help you set up your business in order to secure investment through the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) or Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS).
- We can put you on the right path and either give you the support for you to do your own bookkeeping or we can do it for you using Xero.
