Growing a Business

Growing a business can be quite a challenge, requiring a number of important decisions on how to expand. It is also often the first time new business owners have to think about hiring staff.

Our advisers are uniquely equipped to support you through this exciting stage of the business process. Experience has taught us how best to do this and as every business is unique we are able to tailor our support specifically for you.

Business Planning - If you haven't developed a business plan (or updated yours in a while) then it is a vital starting point to gain an overview of your business activities and create a strategy to achieve your goals and ambitions. Our advisers can call on their years of experience in order to quickly assess areas of potential growth and help you avoid costly mistakes as you take your business to the next level. As well as helping you to develop a strong business plan they can also assist in any funding requirements from banks and other financial sources.

Business Funding - The availability of business growth funding changes regularly whether in the form of grants or loans and often depends on specific criteria being met. If you are interested in what growth funding your business may be eligible for and how we can help you with the application process go to our business funding page to find out more.
