You need to answer some important questions first

  • Is your business structured correctly?
  • Do you have sufficient capital to grow?
  • Are you going to employ anyone?
  • How do you keep your records?
  • Do you have a marketing strategy?

Instead of looking back in 5 years’ time and thinking “I wish I’d done XYZ at the start”, learn from our experience seeing thousands of business through their journey, from start-up to exit.

  • I cannot thank A4G enough for their time and support. They have always been at the end of the phone offering help, advice and support. It’s so nice to have someone so dedicated.
