Expanding a business is an exciting time: your initial business plan has paid off, and you’re ready to grow. But it can also be risky, involving expenditure and a lot of planning: your customers, your bottom line and the very nature of your business can all be adversely affected by an unconsidered growth strategy.
Our practical, experienced team of experts can help to guide you through the expansion process. We can review your business to ensure that it is prepared to expand, conduct operational reviews, assist with all elements of financing, monitor and measure your KPIs, assist with mergers and acquisitions and provide valuable advice to support an international expansion. We will work closely with to ensure that, if you’re ready for expansion, everything goes as planned – and we’ll provide valuable advice and insights along the way.
Taking the leap from employee to employer is one of the most exciting experiences of your working life, but it can also be the most daunting. Most entrepreneurs start a business because they’ve got a fantastic idea, not necessarily because they’re business experts, but the good news is, you don’t have to be to succeed. Dua & Co can take care of the legal, fiscal and financial aspects of running your business, so that you can focus on its development.
Our highly skilled team of experts can provide a realistic, constructive assesment of your business ideas. We can also help structure your business, prepare a business plan and cashflow projections, draw up a budget or provide trading forecasts. We can take care of registering with Companies House, Inland Revenue or Customs & Excise, assess your financial requirements, assist with proposals and take all bookkeeping and records-keeping off your hands. In short, we can take the place of a full time Financial Director – saving you money to channel back into your business.
It’s a tough time for entrepreneurs and business owners, but you don’t have to battle with your business strategy alone. Dua & Co’s team of expert accountants and business advisors have a wealth of experience in helping businesses of all sizes to grow and develop – from start-ups to mature businesses, we are adept at helping you improve your bottom line. We can work with you to make practical, realistic and sustainable financial plans that help you achieve your business goals, and we strive to understand the workings of your business from the inside so that we can provide you with tailored insights.
Our extensive suite of business services includes all the accounting features you would expect, including acquisitions, mergers and disposals, corporate finance, tax planning, bookkeeping, VAT and international accounting – but we can also help you with strategic forecasts, business development & succession planning. Our hands-on, practical experts are here to help you.
Every single working of your business translates into profit or loss – and while some of these factors are beyond your control, by taking charge of the factors you can manage, you’re giving your business the very best chance of success.
Dua & Co. works with you to improve the performance and increase the profitability of your business – from financial budgeting, KPI and trend analysis, operational planning and profitability analysis to strategy development and streamlining your business; Dua & Co.’s years of expertise help arm your business with the information it needs to succeed.
Buying and selling a business are two of the most challenging experiences of your working life – whether it’s your first business or part of an expansion plan. Acquiring a business opens up new opportunities, while selling your business needs to be carefully managed.

The wide range of skills and services Dua & Co. provides have been designed to improve business performance and profitability – using expertise honed through years of commitment to our business clients, we can help to monitor your business and industry, giving you proactive advice on how you can improve your bottom line. We’ll work with you to help implement any suggestions you take up.
Every business owner needs a team of professionals in the background, providing continuous support and advice to ensure everything runs smoothly. Our business support services can relieve you of many of your routine financial and accounting operations, leaving you free to use your energy where it is most required: growing your business.
Tax is a costly concern for businesses in terms of both time and money but, considering how much of your trading costs tax represents, it’s essential to handle it well. Increased reporting obligations, endless legislation revisions, robust investigation policies and harsh non-compliance penalties make it ever more time-consuming to keep up with demands, but Dua & Co. can keep abreast of these complex issues for you, while adding value to your business.
Financial planning is a continuous process of appraisal and review. Ensuring that your savings and investments are always being controlled in suitable environments where they are fulfilling their maximum potential is a complex task – but one which is essential for financial growth. We advise our clients on how to make the most out of existing assets and ensure every avenue for growth is explored.
Expanding your business internationally is a huge leap, with the potential for similarly huge rewards. No matter how confident you are in your business, international expansion throws up a whole new set of issues: understanding and adapting to a new marketplace, creating a new network of business contacts and monitoring local competition, to name but a few. We are able to provide clients who are braving the waters of international expansion with a whole range of unique services. We work with an International Partner who has coverage in over 90 countries.
Bookkeeping can take the focus off business and halt sales follow-up. Many businesses find their paperwork a headache or difficult. It is expensive to hire someone in to take on this work and a concern that they have the technical knowledge to comply with HMRC rules for VAT, PAYE and invoicing. Dua & Co. are helping more and more businesses by literally taking away the pain and doing all their financial paperwork! We share real time data with clients through cloud accounting giving access 24/7 with management accounts, graphs and Key Performance Indicators. We always meet to explain what those numbers mean leaving management time to focus on running the business. Become one of our success stories! Simply call 0208 421 3555 and ask Kelly to book you a free consultation. We work to support growing businesses.
