Growing your business
We all revel in the success of moguls like Richard Branson, Lord Sugar and Simon Cowell. And we are addicted to TV programmes such as Dragons' Den and The Apprentice that try to unlock the secrets of how to grow a business.
Anyone who has watched Dragons' Den knows how important it is to get your corporate structure right, have a clear business plan and put good systems in place.
They know the questions to ask in order to get to know your business. Not just financial questions, details about your operations and procedures so that they really understand what makes your business tick.

"As our business grew we needed a firm of accountants who both understood our business and also with whom we could work to contribute to strategic growth. From the initial proposal, documentation and presentation Clark Howes really stood out from the other prospective firms.
They immediately identified ways to save our business cash and also made relevant suggestions to help us tender in new areas. After appointing Clark Howes they immediately reviewed our business finances and company structure, the resulting restructuring saved us a considerable sum in tax over three years. They have had and continue to provide a direct and positive impact on the development of our business.
What really sets Clark Howes apart from the rest is their dedication and level of service as a trusted advisor and we look forward to working with them over many years to come."
