We’re proud to have The Start Up Loans Company on board as our headline sponsor.
The Start Up Loans Company was established in September 2012, with a mission to help new and early stage UK businesses access affordable finance and mentoring support. Since then, more than 40,000 business ideas have been supported with over £200m of lending.
A Start Up Loan is an unsecured personal loan used specifically for starting or growing a business. All applications take into consideration both the individual’s personal circumstances, including affordability, plus the viability of the business. Pre-loan support is available to help develop a business plan and cash flow forecast, while free mentoring for successful loan recipients helps to turn a business plan into a reality. Businesses in nearly every sector are eligible to apply for funding, whether it’s a dog grooming salon or dating app.
haysmacintyre is an award winning, single office firm of chartered accountants and tax advisers based in central London. Our 32 partners and over 220 staff deliver a range of high quality accountancy, tax, corporate finance and business advice to start-ups, fast growing and entrepreneurial businesses and listed companies.
In the last three years our turnover has increased by 33% from organic growth alone, which we consider reflects the level of our client service, the culture within the firm and our progressive outlook. Our professionals work in specific sectors which include creative, media and technology, hospitality, property and financial services, so clients benefit from advisers familiar with their industries, active in their commercial communities and well-connected to networks that could be helpful to them.
We have a reputation for being dynamic and forward-thinking and we are often consulted on our clients’ wider range of commercial challenges. We are among only a few firms which bridge the gap between the larger firms which do everything but may lack the personal touch and smaller firms which may be able to provide only a narrow range of services. We are one of a select group of firms awarded The Mid-Tier Firm of the Year accolade at The British Accountancy Awards.
Our experience of working with entrepreneurs and business owners means that we have a thorough understanding of issues facing growing businesses so we can support them at every stage, from starting up, through growth and diversification, to an exit event. We are a top 15 firm to quoted companies in the Adviser Ranking Listing.
As a founding firm of a large international alliance of accountants and lawyers we can provide reliable, local expertise wherever in the world our clients are growing their businesses and we assist international companies doing business in the UK.
We wish all entrants the best of luck.
