Starting a business can be a very exciting time, but also daunting!

The process of setting up a new business can be a minefield, due to the sheer number of different tasks to complete. Many of the things new business owners should consider are not obviously promoted, so it’s a case of “you don’t know what you don’t know” – this can cause issues down the line. We can help you through each step, from the very beginning of “what do you want to do and why?”, to deciding which legal structure your business should take, to employing your first member of staff.


Good To Know


  • Not everyone needs to have a Limited Company. There are definite advantages of Limited Companies in some circumstances, but as every business is different it’s important to ensure you choose the right legal structure for your business.


  • Business Plans don’t have to be “War and Peace” but a plan really is important.


  • Cashflow forecasting (planning how and when money comes in and goes out of the business) is vitally important, as poor cashflow can be a stumbling block for many fledgling businesses.

All businesses start with an idea. At Caroline Hinde Accountancy we help you take that idea and make it a reality.

Some of the things we can help you with;

  • Choosing the right business structure
  • Business Planning
  • Guidance on registering your business
  • Record keeping obligations
  • Registering with HMRC for the relevant taxes
  • Cashflow Forecasting


If you have an idea and would like to discuss how to take it further, get in touch to arrange a free consultation.

Don’t just take our word for it!

We chose to work with Caroline Hinde Accountancy because we wanted to have a real-time view of our business performance, rather than months after the year had ended. Having this information has enabled us to take informed decisions which has enabled a period of growth for us.

Knowing that everything is taken care of on a monthly basis gives us huge peace of mind and we always know well in advance of our tax liabilities so we are always in control of our cashflow. We now use the software recommended to us to send our customers invoices which look professional and make it easy for us to monitor any outstanding invoices.

The service we receive from Caroline Hinde Accountancy is invaluable - they're approachable, friendly and professional.

Caroline has recently finished my accounts for me. She has done an excellent job of pulling everything together and I felt both relieved and confident, that they were submitted correctly.

I am so pleased that I asked for Caroline's assistance in helping me with my accounts. Even though I'm just a small business, it was nice to have that reassurance, that everything has been done correctly. It was money well spent!

I found Caroline to be very approachable and helpful in her advice. A lovely person to work with - thank you!

A fabulous accountant with a personality and a sense of humour? An oxymoron I hear you cry! But not at all. Caroline Hinde is all of that!

For a small business owner like me who knows next to nothing about self assessment and has no inclination to further their knowledge, what I need is someone who simply takes care of it all. That’s exactly what I got from Caroline; she is efficient and friendly and is incredibly knowledgeable. Nothing is too much trouble and she has taken all the stress out of the whole process for me.

I can’t praise Caroline highly enough and would recommend her to anyone I know and indeed have done so whenever I can. Look no further than Caroline, and you will not be disappointed.
