Find out how we can support Colchester based businesses improve their finances and increase profit margins
Colchester is home to businesses in all stages of their growth. We work with startups based in business incubators across the town offering straightforward, practical advice on how to set up your business for success. As a startup, you’re usually running everything yourself from accounting to sales to marketing. We can look after your company accounts, bookkeeping, tax & vat and take that stress off your shoulders so you can focus on what you do best, without worrying about a letter from HMRC. We’re here to support you with putting together clear business plans and budgets to significantly increase your business success both now and in the future.
When it comes to SMEs you’ve set up your business and things are going well but now it’s time to grow to the next stage. This could be expanding the products and services you offer or taking on more staff. With business growth comes a new set of accounting challenges. We can support you with payroll for your new staff, cashflow forecasting, cost-cutting and increasing profitability.
Large, well-established businesses have a different set of challenges when it comes to running and managing accounts. With more staff comes increased payroll requirements, contractors’ tax status now needs to be decided by the employer (IR35) and with the range of changes around COIVD, it can be hard to keep track of the changing regulatory requirements. We keep up to date with all changes in legislation and make sure you’re compliant at all times.
Steven Burton & Co are based in Earls Colne in North Essex, just a short 20-minute drive from central Colchester. We understand that as business owners you’re short on time and not everything requires a face to face meeting. We are always happy to have a quick catchup online or take a trip to your office.
