As a new business you have a choice of structure through which to trade; sole trader, partnership or limited company.  The choice you make should be based on several factors such as tax efficiency, commerciality, the degree of risk and the image you wish to portray. We are here to help you make the right choice as we understand the pros and cons of each and can apply our knowledge to help you decide what would work best for you.

Company Formations

Shepherd Partnership’s company formation service is stress free. We have the expertise to complete all the Companies House paperwork, which is not always that straightforward. It is vital to get it right from the start. We can talk you through the process and give advice on whether the company name you have in mind is available. We are here for you to ensure you start off on the right footing.

Start-ups

We can register your business with HMRC, register you for Value Added Tax (VAT), set up a Pay As You Earn Scheme (PAYE), deal with the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) and we can help identify times when you might need help from other professionals such as those able to help with raising finance, human resources etc. 

Aimed at sole traders setting up in business we have our very popular Start Up Package. As we know you will need to control costs our service starts at just £55 per month (including VAT) because we strongly believe fledgling businesses deserve high quality accounting and tax advice. Having access to professional advice and support all-year round gives your business the best chance to flourish.

We will prepare an income and expenditure account, or full accounts for larger businesses, prepare and submit your tax return, and provide free bookkeeping tools for the smallest of businesses. Our business support team is available to help you throughout the year.
