Get your business going and growing

Startups are usually run by clever people with a big idea who’ve spotted a gap in the market. They come to us for help because they’ve got too much going on, too fast, to be worrying about compliance, everyday tax and accounting for startups.

They also value business advice from someone who’s been starting and running businesses for years – Mary Blyth, that is, founder of Blyth Accountants. Mary ran her first business when she was 18 and hasn’t stopped since. You can be sure she’ll tell you how it is, give clear advice and come to you with ideas and opportunities to grow.

On day one, you might wonder about your business structure. Does it need to a limited company, or can you keep running it on a sole trader basis? You’ll also need help getting registered with HMRC and maybe Companies House. Your accounting systems will need setting up – we recommend Xero, QuickBooks or an equivalent cloud accounting package.

Then, as your business matures, we’ll be there with guidance on long-term business planning, support in getting funding and even advice on exit strategies. After all, you want to get that big pay out one day, don’t you?

Get It Right.



When you’ve got the basics in place and done right you can focus on what really matters. From tax returns to statutory registrations, we’ll take care of this.


Business planning

You absolutely cannot wing it. Your startup needs a multi-year plan so you can measure your progress and win over investors and lenders.


Reporting and KPIs

Management accounting provides regular reports so you can spot weaknesses and opportunities. It’s about financial data and key performance indicators.


Go digital

Any new business that sets up today and doesn’t build its financial systems around cloud accounting technology is seriously missing a trick.

Startups like working with us

Entrepreneurs like our approach. The focus on cloud technology saves them time. Our care and attention to detail keeps them on track. And we help them push constantly towards growing their businesses.

When we established our business, Blyth Accountants came to as recommendation from a very well-respected business consultant. We engaged with Mary very soon afterwards and built a very professional relationship very quickly. We had huge problems with HMRC with regards to Excise approval, Mary dealt with them efficiently and with professionalism.
