Startup businesses are the beginning of something remarkable, however, being a new business does not mean you do not deserve the best advice…

We’re here to help at the end of the day. Let’s find out what we can do to make your life that little bit smoother.

How do RPGCC help startup and growing SME businesses?


Firstly our client base is such that we help hundreds of startup and growing SME businesses everyday.  We have been doing this for decades.  We ourselves are an SME business owned by entrepreneurs, we know your pains. 

That is why we offer dedicated services for business startups and SME businesses.  All these services are bespoke and can be scaled as your business grows. 

These services guide you through the processes necessary to make your business healthy, profitable and ultimately successful. These might include:

  • Setting up a payroll for you (regardless of whether you have 1 employee or 400)
  • Setting you up on Xero (or similar of your choice)
  • Training you on how to manage your bank account and invoicing processes through a simple Xero app in your phone.  
  • Registering you for VAT and discussing your VAT returns 
  • Bookkeeping  
  • Annual Accounts 
  • Registering with Companies House

In those early days of a new business, it’s about getting your business set up with the right structure; registered with HMRC and, if appropriate, Companies House; and with all the right finance systems and processes in place.

It’s also about business planning and sourcing finance, whether through lenders and investors, or through tax relief.

We can help establish whether you might be eligible to make an R&D claim.  This might give your business the chance to reap the benefits of massive savings if as a business you engage with research and development projects. There are many areas that are eligible for R&D, you don’t have to be conducting science experiments! Far too many companies don’t realise the massive reimbursements through R&D that they could receive.

RPGCC are a full-service firm.  We offer the above alongside specialist tax planning, VAT advice, Corporate Finance and Independent Financial Services and Wealth Management.
