My Business Growth
Businesses grow for many reasons. It can be driven by customer demand or through acquisition, a business can strategically grow by targeting a niche sector or because of change in regulations or laws.
However as a business grows, there can (and often does) come with it challenges or complications. For example, when a business grows rapidly there can be a squeeze on cash flow from existing operation to fund the growth. So partnering with an accountant and business advisor who understands and can work through these challenges is a must.
Our wealth is important in how we fund our lifestyle now and into our retirement years. So its fair to say that maximiising one's wealth is extremely important. And maximising ones wealth is not about getting the best returns from effort and investment, but protecting what gets built up as well.
Through a process of assessing and discussing your growth and succession planning and having the important conversations, Cliftons can help see you make the best of what you've worked hard for.

But remember, there are 3 ways of looking at tax. First is the black and white application of the law. All accountants do this. Second is the grey areas, where careful consideration of the facts, knowledge of the law and applying them together can be very beneficial with a reasonably arguable position. Cliftons do this extremely well. Finally there is the technicolour area, where the schemes and sneaks that try and get around the law operate. You won't find Cliftons here.
