Hello everyone. I'm in the start-up phase of a new social enterprise, and all being well in the next 12 months we will start to see some good initial income (mix of grant and trading income), having spent R&D time reaching out to potential partners. I have a simple question, as someone who has never managed company accounts, or needed to produce a P&L or a balance sheet, how can I access affordable accountancy when I am working bootstrap? Can anyone recommend a good simple service which will suffice until we have more cash in the company? Thank you for any advice!
Id say literally ask accountants in your circle to sponsor you for the first year, maybe offer certain positive pr for them like name drops or a logo on your website
Cheeky but a good accountant can make all the difference. We do have guys on here who provide advice for free and reasonable services but we do not endorse anyone :-)
