We provide support
for new Businesses

If you are thinking of starting up your own business or company, we are here to help you every step of the way.

Legal Structure:

We can advise you on the different legal structures available for your business. You can set up your business as a sole trader, a partnership or a limited company. The type of legal structure depends on your type of business, your own personal financial needs, your risk threshold and with whom you are doing business with.


Banks, Grantors and Funders will all look to see cashflow projections and management accounts before providing any financial support to your business. We can assist with financial projections and preparation of management accounts when applying for any loans, funding or grants.


Different legal structures have different tax requirements. Kitchmoigh Kinnear can look after all your business taxation needs including paying staff and ensure you remain compliant with Revenue. See the Taxation section for more information on the services we provide.


As a small family practice, we are very hands on with our clients and are always just a phone call away. We have client relationships that have lasted over 30 years and have supported the successful growth of their business step by step.

Get in touch with us today to see how Hitchmough Kinnear can help you and your new business.

Why do I need an accountant?

Isn’t it just larger businesses that need an accountant?
Of course not, even the smallest business can benefit from advice on ways to minimise tax and manage their accounts. If you prefer, we can handle all of your bookkeeping, regular management accounts and VAT returns on your behalf. The added benefit of us being involved is that having prepared the books it makes the final accounts much easier, saving time and keeping costs down.

Is it expensive to use an accountant?

Working with an accountant is an added cost to any business. However, the cost should be offset by the value they add. We work closely with our clients to achieve their goals. By getting to know you and your business well, we can tailor what we do specifically for your needs and your strategy, thereby adding value.

How do you charge?

We aim to provide you with a fixed fee quote that will cover the areas we will work on together. This will be based on the complexity and volume of the tasks involved. Should any additional assignments come up during the year then we will provide a quote in advance, unless the matter is urgent and it is in your best interests to take action on your behalf. We offer you the chance to pay our fees monthly and avoid having a large invoice in one go, which helps your cashflow. One thing is for sure, if you telephone with a query you won’t get a bill. We want you to let us know how you are.

Can I maintain my own accounting records?

If you want to keep your own accounting records, then that is fine. If you need some help then we can give you some training. Ensuring that you understand the best way to prepare your accounting information makes it easier for us to complete your accounts or tax return. If we do this for you then you can concentrate on running your business.

I've been up and running for a couple of years. How can you help me?

Sometimes it helps to have a fresh pair of eyes look at your business. We will listen to you and firstly understand the history of the business and then how you want to develop it. We can carry out a “healthcheck” of the operating systems, management and financial reporting in place; advise on any matters arising and recommend any actions required. All designed to match up with your goals, which we established at the outset.
