Business advice

We understand that you need timely and relevant business advice to make informed decisions that are right for your company. That is why we focus on providing you with comprehensive services tailored to your needs.  

Company formations

Choosing the right business structure is crucial for your success. Our experts can help you identify the most suitable structure and assist in setting up corporate entities, such as limited companies or limited liability partnerships (LLPs). With our tailor-made service, you’ll have a wide range of options to customise your company or LLP, including name, capital structure, officer appointments, registered office, articles of association, and more.

Business start-up and structure

Whether you’re starting a new business or looking to optimise an existing one, our skilled team can provide the support you need. We can help assess your funding requirements, advise on the best sources of finance, and assist in preparing proposals.

Additionally, we can provide guidance on determining the most suitable business structure, handle registration procedures with Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs, address company secretarial matters, foster relationships with your bank, and help articulate your business plan with comprehensive financial forecasts.

Business planning and forecasts

To ensure your business’s long-term success, effective planning and accurate financial forecasts are essential. We offer a thorough review of your plans, helping you identify potential financial hurdles and develop well-thought-out contingency plans.

Our services encompass setting and reviewing strategic goals, preparing annual/monthly profit and cashflow forecasts, assisting with business planning, and monitoring performance against targets.

Business structuring and re-organisation

As your business grows, it may require restructuring to adapt to changing demands. Our experts can assist you in various scenarios, such as mitigating risks during expansion, incentivising key management, simplifying complex ownership structures through group introduction, and facilitating retirement for owner managers. We also provide business restructuring advice for tax efficiency purposes.

Business valuation

Understanding the value of your business is crucial, whether for commercial purposes, employee incentive schemes, or inheritance tax planning. McBrides has extensive experience in conducting business valuations, ensuring you have accurate and reliable assessments to support your decision-making.

Succession planning

Planning for and considering your exit strategy is essential which is why you need practical advice to realise your aspirations. Our experienced and skilled corporate finance team can take away some of the uncertainty, help you evaluate different options and suggest tax-efficient alternatives. We address questions regarding your business’s valuation, tax consequences of sale or generational disposal, preferred asset types for sale (shares, trade, or assets), and guide you through the sales process, ensuring you’re well-prepared.
