Food and Drink

Operating as a business in the food and drink sector whether it is in manufacture, wholesale or distribution, or a combination of all three, brings unique challenges. We recognise that businesses in this sector are particularly susceptible to events that are outside your control - legislative changes, and any number of natural or man made events.

Our experienced business advisors to the food and drink sector focus on helping businesses to plan for what they know about, and help them to be fully prepared for the unexpected. Focusing on planning means you can ascertain your financial position at any time, make prompt and timely decisions, and operate as efficiently as possible. We help businesses to plan for what they know about, and help them to be fully prepared for the unexpected.

Sports Clubs

Running a sports club can often involve a complex trading structure, with parts of the organisation trading as a commercial entity and other parts operating under the not for profit umbrella.

Your sources of income and funding can affect the tax implications to the club. This requires careful consideration and attention to structure. Sports clubs need advisors who combine technical knowledge with commercial perspective - and that’s what we provide.

Our specialists will work with you to also advise you on business growth, organically or by acquisition
