Why Should You Use an Accountant to Form a Company?

The company formation process can be problematic which is why we want to help you get it right first time.  A Glasgow accountant from The Kelvin Partnership, will make sure that you make the right decisions in forming a company. We want to help you understand why you should use an accountant rather than an online service when you form a company.

Company Formation Guidance & Advice

We will guide you every step of the way!


The steps that are included in the company formation process can be daunting. It can often be hard to know where to start! By hiring an accountant to help start a business, they can help to guide you through each step of the process to ensure that you understand how it will influence how your business operates.

By consulting an accountant, you will also be able to gain advice as to what type of company you should form and why this is the best decision for your business – this is a great place to start to ensure that you are heading down the right path. Not only can they help decide what type of business you should set up, but they can also help create a realistic business plan to help set goals for the company.

On top of all the guidance regarding to the operations of your business, an accountant can be great for providing helpful hints and tips to save you money, particularly when it comes to taxes and allowances etc. If you would like some more information about creating a business plan, this post might help!

By setting off on the right foot with your accountant you will have someone you can trust by your side to advise you on many aspects of your business – which is never a bad thing!

What You Do and Don’t Need to Sign Up for – and Why?

With so many different financial and legal things you may or may not need to sign up for, having someone by your side to ensure you are registered and paying all that you need to be is a great thing to have. Whether it be PAYE or VAT, your accountant will make sure that you are registered for all of the necessary things – this will help keep your business running smoothly. An accountant can also help you understand why you need to be registered for certain things, as it can often by frustrating when you are paying out extra money etc. especially when you are unsure as to why. An accountant from The Kelvin Partnership will essentially act as a company formation guide.
