Finance Alliance Supporting Midlands Manufacturers

Advantage Business Agency is delighted to announce their new alliance with Business Solutions (Midlands) and the Debt Recovery Bureau.  Both of these well-established businesses specialise in working with manufacturing companies in the Midlands and further afield.

You can now find all the finance support you need from a team of specialists who bring their considerable experience, knowledge and unique expertise together- to make the whole greater than the sum of its parts.

Advantage Business Agency through this alliance will continue to provide a full accountancy service including Year End Accounts, VAT, Payroll, Personal Tax, Corporate Tax (both Strategy and Compliance) in addition to their Virtual Financial Director service supported by the provision of key up-to-date financial management information on a timely basis. Our accountancy service provides the vital support and flow of information to manufacturing companies who want to expand and ensure their business has a long-term future

You can effectively expand your manufacturing firm by first gaining solid financial control which requires the regular production and review of strategic reports, budgets and cashflow projections.  This fundamental information supports your decision making on purchasing new equipment, employing more staff, moving to larger premises, exploring new markets etc. 

It is these investments which will ensure your expansion and guarantee your long-term future.   However, you need to make sure you have the right amount of money in the bank- too much can be almost as bad as too little for your business- and that you minimise your trade debt and reduce your bad debt risk.    

Business Solutions can help you claim tax credits which go straight to your bottom line and the Debt Recovery Bureau will reduce your trade debt rapidly and improve your cashflow. 

Business Solutions are the experts at claiming R&D tax credits for manufacturers.  The team is comprised of scientists and engineers who understand the manufacturing and engineering sectors.  It is this understanding which sets them and their results apart from their competition.  

The average Business Solutions R&D tax claimis 30% higher than the national average.  This is only achievable by a business who fully understands the tax system, their client’s company and the business sectors they operate in.

Accountants can make a claim based on their understanding of the tax system.  However, you can achieve much better results with an experienced and specialist R&D Tax Credit consultancy that understands your business and the manufacturing industry.  

How much effort does it take for your business to make a £60,000 profit? 

£60,000 is Business Solutions average R&D tax claim.   As they work on a "no win, no fee basis" and only charge a percentage of your refund when you get it then this could be the easiest way to make a profit that we've ever seen.  

The Debt Recovery Bureau offer a no fee service to manufacturers on all their business to business debts.  In other words, for all of your B2B debts, their service is completely free to you. They add their fee to your debtor's bill.

Free up time and energy and remove the frustration for your accounts staff while ensuring that your invoices are given priority by your debtors.  

The simplest thing is to give DRB your debt book to manage and relax knowing that your late and bad debts are being collected in a professional and efficient manner.  This:

  • Helps your cashflow,
  • Minimises the risk of bad debt and
  • Let’s you get on with the real business.  

Debt collection is a personal service and through understanding the manufacturing industry they will get the best result for you.  The DRB team have been expertly collecting late and bad debts for local, national and international businesses since 2003.
