Business Advice

Need to raise some extra finance? Draw up business plans for development or grant purposes? Manage asset sales and ownership issues? Whatever it is, Dodd & Co can help.

business advice

We can provide real no-nonsense independent advice on all aspects of business and banking matters. We have spent over 30 years advising clients on business structure and performance and we would be happy to do the same for you. We have a unique advantage here at Dodd & Co as our varied client base means we can base our advice on our vast database gathered from farmers, doctors, dentists, solicitors, hotels and a wide range of other business sectors. This gives us a firm indication of what is going on in your industry and what issues you are facing.

We can review your bank borrowings, both new and existing to make sure they are working as well as they possibly can for you, ensuring the term and repayment method are the most appropriate and that you are making the best use of any surplus funds.

We keep in regular contact with the main lending institutions and we are very happy to provide advice on the best borrowing deals available from an independent point of view. Our nurtured relationships in this area mean we can even introduce you to local relationship managers if requested.

Many of our appointments are grant aided and our success can be monitored by the number of clients willing to act as referees for us.

Dodd & Co, working in conjunction with the Cumbria Chamber of Commerce, are now running a free business start up course from our Rosehill office in Carlisle and another from Newton Rigg in Penrith. This 3 day course is specifically designed for those who are thinking of becoming self employed or those who have a business in the early years of trading. For more information click here.

If you think we can be of any assistance, please contact Alison Johnston.

I have known Alison Johnston for a number of years and have found her advice to be totally ‘spot on’, as is that of the rest of the ‘Dodds Team’. She is so much more than an ‘accountant’ – giving valuable advice on business planning, critiquing ideas and plans and offering the benefit of her experience. She has recently introduced us to ‘Kashflow’ – a tool which allows us to manage our own finances, from issuing invoices to calculating our VAT – invaluable! We are now working with her colleague Rob Bainbridge who has just completed our first set of accounts in our new business and who has been very patient with us and our many questions!! We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Dodd Accountants going forward.
