Frequently asked questions


Are tips that my staff receive taxable?

Yes – there are a number of ways that these can be dealt with. Either applied to each individual’s pay or via a “tronc” where tips are pooled and taxed together via a separate payroll system.

Banks will not lend in this industry how can you help?

This is a common misconception. Lenders will consider each application upon its own merits, and assess, affordability, security and profitability. It is vital that businesses can demonstrate a well thought through business plan and viable financial information.

How successful is my business compared to others in my industry?

We regularly obtain industry financial performance information. Whilst we appreciate that these are averages they give a good guide to business performance and can be used as a useful comparative to ratios, such as staff costs and gross profit margins, we can help identify areas for improvement with a view to increasing your profitability.

Should I operate as a Limited Company?

The answer to this question depends upon a number of factors such as borrowings, profitably, future plans etc. We can assess your overall financial position and advise accordingly.

Should I own my business premises via a Limited Company or Personally?

A number of factors should be taken into account when deciding the best option, such as taxation, future plans and funding to name a few. We can analyse your personal circumstances and provide you with detailed options for ownership.
