What’s the big idea?

We’re a positive-thinking team here at Balance, but even we have to concede that the odds are stacked against new businesses. Research shows that 4 out of 5 new businesses fail within their first 5 years of trading, and that 57% of them fail within just 12 months. The good news is that research also shows that careful financial planning and a good accountant are two of the key things that really make a difference in helping new businesses to avoid becoming just another statistic.

Our Start-up service is squarely aimed at new or fledgling businesses with the sense and foresight to learn the financial ropes, get their accounts in order and then prepare to prosper and grow. It’s our way of helping tip the balance in favour of short-term survival leading to long-term commercial success.
