Business Setup and Planning

If you’re setting up a new business, wanting to restructure, improve, or expand your current business, or looking to merge with another, ATP can help. We want to be your accounting partners throughout the whole life cycle of your business as your objectives, business environment, and circumstances change.

Business start up and structure advice

Starting up a business can be an exciting, but overwhelming experience. The right entity structure is very important, as different structures have their own advantages and drawbacks. Choosing the right business structure can save you on tax, offer you great flexibility, or reduce your reporting requirements.

At ATP we are experts in this area, and by sitting down with you, we will formulate a step-by-step plan that will make your business setup as streamlined and easy as possible. We bring together our vast experience in taxation, audit and accounting, to advise you on the most suitable business structure for your situation, transactional advice, succession planning, managing change, and, of course, governance.

Having the right systems in place from the get-go can improve your business efficiency and with the help of a structured plan, together we can guide your business in the right direction.

Growing your business

Whether you want to increase your sales, maximise the efficiency of your current systems, or break into a new market, the business advisors at ATP can help. By calculating break-even points, potential return rates, and implementation costs, we can provide with you with important information upon which to make your decisions, always with risk-minimisation in mind.
