New website
Our revamped website is now live at We’d be pleased to hear any feedback from you on the new look.

Client news
We have recently helped BlottĀ to secure another round of funding. This has resulted in three new stores being opened (Lakeside, Manchester and Leeds) and at least one more will be added later this year. The brand continues to gain excellent momentum in the market.

Business confidence
UK business confidence recently reached a 13-month high but ‘cautious optimism’ seem to be the watchwords. Read about the report here. Recent British sporting successes and some prolonged fine weather must surely push it even higher.

Risk management
Despite improving performance most companies are too busy to consider controlling or reducing their risk exposure. Make sure it is on your agenda.

Auto enrolment is very much on the horizon for small businesses. Even if you don’t think your business is large enough, it’s worth checking on when you’re required to implement a workplace pension scheme.
