We provide accounting and business support to start ups in Manchester across a wide range of industry sectors. Our services can be invaluable to start ups as statistics show that fewer than 25% of new businesses actually succeed. Many of these failures are down to poor cash flow management and weaknesses within the financial framework.

Having a great idea for start up and spotting a gap in the market is only the first step in creating a successful business. The financial side of start ups is just as important, if not more so, but many business owners don’t have the experience, knowledge to time to get to grips with it. Which is fine – we believe that business owners should focus on the actual running of the business whilst we help with the financial side.

Who We

Our relevant and real life experience sets us apart from other accountancy practices in that our Managing Partner, Rob Jones, has been in the front line of businesses for many years. Working as both a financial director and investor for various companies, across a wide range of industries, Rob has a hands-on understanding of the best ways to make businesses more profitable.Rob has passed this expertise on to the staff here at RJF, some of whom have worked with him within companies where he has been the FD.

That’s why we’re confident that we offer a superior service to your typical accountancy firms. We’re much more than that – we are a real business partner.

Whether you’re a startup or an early stage business in Manchester we provide high impact business and financial advice to make you more productive and to give you the freedom to focus on the day-to-day running of your enterprise.
