Project Description

Blott, a new and exciting addition to the UK high street, needed initial and ongoing support in its company formation. Blott required a financial infrastructure to be set up in order to be ready to fulfill its rapid growth expectations.

The Solution

Having gained a thorough understanding of the business and the founder’s vision for it, Ascent FD ensured all statutory requirements were fulfilled. We put in place the necessary financial processes, controls and procedures that would ensure financial rigor throughout all areas of the company. This included implementation of an accounting system, a detailed cash-flow model and a purchase order system. All this ensured Blott was on the right track to achieve its plan in its first year of trading.

The Results

  • Successfully opened two high street stores and an e-commerce website
  • Strong focus on cash-flow has kept critical and operating costs to a minimum
  • With the foundations of the company firmly established, Blott is now looking to expand the brand further and increase its high street presence
“Ascent FD form an invaluable resource for our business to refer to whenever a question arises, as well as providing detailed and accurate management accounts every month. I could not recommend them more highly.”
