Business Support

You are the most valuable asset of your business, so why not outsource your finance administration tasks and free up your time to concentrate on running and developing your business?

The appeal of outsourcing business support services is currently stronger than ever, as organisations seek to combat the ongoing challenges of a skills shortage, whilst remaining focused on the core activities and ‘magic’ which gives the business its competitive advantage.

 

How we can help

We provide business support services to a range of different SME businesses, from straight forward sole traders to larger businesses with more complex requirements. Typically, medium sized businesses are big enough to benefit from these services but they are too small to employ an in-house book keeper/accountant.

 

Why choose us?

  • Tailored services shaped around the specific needs of your business,
  • A range of services available from one supplier who understands your business,
  • Cost effective,
  • Allowing us to get this close to your business finances, this regularly, gives us the background from which to give real time pro-active advice.

Client Review

Managing Director of an Engineering Consultancy
As an engineering manager, I started my own consultancy business ten years ago, with my wife as co-director. Whiting & Partners guided us in setting up the day to day accounting systems, which even the smallest company has to have, and have since looked after the annual accounts and tax matters. This, combined with the help that they have given with our personal tax affairs, has allowed us to concentrate on the marketing and technical sides of our business, and undoubtedly saved us money. We find them professional, practical and accessible.
