Accountants for Startups

The set-up is the first step to creating a successful venture

If you are thinking of starting a new business, then you will need to engage the services of accountants. At AMS Accountants, we specialise in helping startups realise their goals. We can assist with the set-up of your company and provide ongoing support as your business grows.


Why every startup needs an accountant

Engaging the services of accountants is an important step in ensuring the success of your startup business. We can provide advice on a range of financial matters, from tax planning to raising capital. We can also help you to manage your finances effectively and make the most of your resources.

After an initial meeting we’ll send you a quote/estimate with a tailored report containing useful advice and suggestions. We’ll spend as much time as you need to talk through your plans and advise you on all aspects of setting up your new venture.

Here’s how we can help

  • Provide you with simple digital bookkeeping tools.
  • Register your business with HMRC.

The Challenge

We were a new publishing business struggling to keep our records in spreadsheet form. We needed a system that was easier to manage that could quickly provide us with the information we needed.  

The Solution

AMS helped us decide on the right cloud accounting software for us. They helped us implement it and each quarter they review the system to ensure our records are correct and useful to us.

The Outcome

We now have an easier-to-use system and with closer support from AMS we can rely on the reports produced by the software to see how the business is performing – pretty much at any time we want to.


We work with Small Businesses and Contractors who expect us to give good advice and help them save tax. Our library of 80+ short videos was produced in-house by us to help with all aspects of being in business and we are often praised for their simplicity on complicated matters.

We feel it’s important that we and our clients keep abreast of changes to tax law and advances in technology so we provide solid tax advice and help with bookkeeping. This includes support for people who are making the move to cloud accounting software.
