Succession Planning

Posted: April 14, 2018 Comment: 0

Succession planning is extremely important in owner-managed businesses. While you might not intend to sell up or retire for many years to come, circumstances change and it’s important to be prepared for every eventuality.

For some business owners, change can come in the form of an unexpected offer that’s too good to turn down. For others, illness or a change in family circumstances can trigger a crisis.

Whatever the situation, without a succession plan business owners generally lose out financially.

Why we charge for a consultation

Posted: September 29, 2017 Comment: 0

Our consultation fee is €150 plus VAT which we will credit against your final fee should you decide to use our service. We know that most accountants provide free consultations but we’re not like most accountants. This may seem arrogant, and we apologise if it comes across that way.  That is not the intention. However, we have built a reputation as one of the go-to-accountants for competitive, effective tax advice. But because of this, we get many requests from existing and potential clients for consultations on how we can save them money and reduce their tax bill. We love doing that and we are very good at it! However, we are a small business and there are only so many hours in the day, therefore, if most of our time is spent providing free consultations then we wouldn’t have a business.

Business Angels

Posted: September 04, 2017 Comment: 0

If you’ve ever watched Dragon’s Den, you’ll be familiar with the concept of private individuals investing in start-up businesses in return for an equity stake in the business. Investors like this are sometimes called business angels. Typically, they are successful people who get a thrill from business and enjoy supporting entrepreneurs. Often, as well as providing capital, they help the startup in other ways, for example by mentoring the owner/manager and/or taking a seat on the board.

Should robots pay tax?

Posted: August 29, 2017 Comment: 0
Earlier this year, in a widely-reported interview with Quartz, Microsoft founder Bill Gates suggested robots should pay tax. Gates pointed out that when a human worker earns $50,000, that income is taxed. So, if a robot does the same thing, why not tax the robot?
