A helping hand for your growing business

Creating a successful, profitable business to support your lifestyle is the dream of many business owners and entrepreneurs. However, those dreams can be frustrated, not because the business is flawed, but because you reach a level of financial expertise that’s beyond your experience. It’s just not your strength. That’s where Addison & Co can step in and act as your ‘virtual’ Finance Director.

Think of us as a ‘safe pair of hands’… an experienced goalkeeper you can rely on whatever the challenge. In practice, you’ll have a highly qualified accountant to advise, mentor and encourage you in all matters financial: to help you focus on working ‘on’ your business rather than working ‘in’ it: to offer opinions drawn from years of experience.

It’s our aim always to add value to your business from the advice we give. We’ll help you break through to new levels – perhaps even beyond your dreams – and at considerably less cost than employing your own full-time FD.

Here are just a few of the Added Value services available to you:

The Board Room

You can invite Addison & Co partners or managers to ‘sit in’ on meetings to review and discuss your management accounts and key numbers and offer their advice. You can invite them either to act as a ‘Virtual FD’ to your business or simply observe and make recommendations.


You can measure your business against others in your industry with the Benchmarking service. It highlights any strengths or weaknesses as a starting point for developing and fine-tuning your business improvement action plan.

Systems Review

You receive a full review of your existing accounting and control systems and recommendations for improvement.

Business Plans

Whenever you need a Business Plan we will prepare an impressive, comprehensive report that ‘ticks all the boxes’ as far as banks and other sources of finance are concerned, including marketing, finance, staffing, cashflow forecast, profit forecast etc.

Buying or selling a business?

Whether you’re arranging a management buy-out, a management buy-in, fundraising or anything else to do with corporate finance, we have immediate access to Corporate Finance specialists who provide you with proactive advice and “hands on” support.

Your Personal Balance Sheet

How much are you worth? This key report provides an instant snapshot of your personal wealth – an important starting point for long-term legacy planning.

In difficult economic times, these management services act as an ‘early-warning’ system – a barometer of business peaks and troughs that will help you and your staff manage the business in the most effective way.
