The Business Advice Service is a scheme backed by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) which aims to play a vital role in aiding business growth and helping SME’s in the UK.
Ward Goodman Chartered Accountants offer a free initial business meeting to small businesses as part of this scheme. The topics under discussion can include commercial or financial issues, such as; how to raise finance, the importance of keeping staff and creating new jobs, debt management, tax planning or how to plan for long term sustainable growth.
Speaking about the scheme, David Lapthorn, director of Ward Goodman and fellow of the ICAEW said, “SME’s are a vital part of our business and the life blood of the UK economy. We are proud to be supporting the ICAEW Business Advice Service by making a resource available to help other SME’s. Ultimately, it will be the growth of the SME market that will get the UK economy back on its feet.”
