Our services for start ups
How can we support your business?
Tax planning and compliance
For a startup, we would ensure a tax efficient funding strategy, advise on the right set up for you and guide you through the complex tax environment along with maximising tax savings wherever possible as the business grows.
Financial planning and forecasting
Our team of business advisers will help you develop a solid financial plan whilst also projecting future revenue, expenses and cash flow. This will allow you to make informed decisions and present key information to potential investors.
Bookkeeping and accounts
Effective bookkeeping and accounting is integral to the growth of every business. Our advisers will manage your accounts payable and receivable, and ensure your financial records are up to date.
Sources of funding
Securing funding is a key objective for startups looking to grow and achieve your business goals. We can connect you with our qualified network of funding sources, including venture capitalists, angel investors and other vehicles for investment.
We can help you identify potential growth opportunities, whether it's expanding into new markets, developing new products or services or increasing operational efficiency.
Non-executive director (NED)
Early-stage companies often benefit from being able to call on the advice of a seasoned (informal) NED who has walked the path of business growth many times before. Our senior advisers often fulfil this role for many of our clients.

Why choose us
Why Gerald Edelman?
Building a successful venture from scratch involves a lot of time, effort and commercial expertise. We can remove the stress of managing your ongoing tax and financial responsibilities and give you more time to focus on the bigger picture of your business.
Many of our advisers have shared the journey with clients from start up, through growth paths and development until an ultimate exit. It’s the cornerstone of everything we do.
A common issue facing many startups is that they delegate accounting and bookkeeping as a secondary duty to a core team member. This might plug the gap for a while, though it’s often the case that not enough attention is paid to strategic financial and tax planning. As such, businesses fail to capitalise on opportunities to minimise tax liabilities and deliver stronger growth over a shorter timeframe.
Having a good understanding of financial forecasting is also a major benefit when it comes to securing investment opportunities. Investors and VCs will want to see robust plans and forecasts for growth before putting money into your company.

How can a non-executive director help my startup grow?
Bringing a non-executive director (NED) on board is a great way for startups to benefit from experience, knowledge, contacts and ideas across a wide range of functions. NEDs can offer a fresh perspective on how your business operates and often provide constructive, impartial advice to help grow your business.
