Our Services

Our accountancy experts can offer strategic advice on everything from funding and investment, company structuring, key staff incentives, regulation and compliance through to tax planning and compliance.

In addition to our standard accounting and tax services we can assist with:

  • R&D Tax Credits and Patents Box.
  • Assisting with funding/investment and utilisation of the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS).
  • Attracting and retaining key staff through remuneration and incentives such as Enterprise Management Incentive (EMI) schemes.
  • Advising on business valuations and maximising value.
  • International VAT & Customs.
  • Structuring for investment, licensing, intellectual property protection and joint ventures.
  • Exit strategy planning
  • Specialist audits for grants funding.

In a competitive industry such as technology or software, the need to show key stakeholders in your organisation that you’re a serious, transparent company who is being honest about the financial position of your organisation is vital. Also, advances in technology have led to companies in this industry having to deal with a great deal of consumer information, this handling of sensitive data and the ensuing responsibility further embed the need, to be honest in your financial reporting.

Here at Williamson & Croft, we know the need for a thorough audit process to ensure there is a healthy relationship between business, consumers and stakeholders. Our audit process for your tech company begins with a planning phase which is a process of attaining up-to-date financial records which help us determine how to complete the audit. We then work with your management team to collect evidence, see the full transaction flow and understand the operational set-up of your finance team. Throughout our time working for you, we stress the need for technology businesses to provide all information and not hold back anything important.

We know that audits provide reassurance to investing stakeholders that their investment is with people who know what to do with it. And, by having an independent body complete the audit work, you provide confidence to relevant stakeholders in those early stages. Thanks to our cloud computing capabilities which allow us to access, upload and download documents remotely, we make the whole process thorough and modern. We’ll be there to offer your business insight and advice to help improve internal business processes, minimise the risk posed by cybersecurity and use data analytics to spot ways you can save money. We’ll ensure that, by implementing our recommendations, you can safeguard resources, increase efficiency and ensure you’re compliant with the law.

For more information about the process please contact our friendly team at Williamson & Croft by phone on 0161 399 0121 (Manchester), 0151 303 3112 (Liverpool) or contact our audit partner directly at

In addition we have a network of trusted advisors with specialist industry knowledge that can add real value to your business. From bankers and funders through to lawyers and patent attorneys, we’ve got you covered.
