Business Basics: free workshop for startups in Peterborough

This Business Basics workshop will be delivered on behalf of the Serious Impact team by Mandy MacKinnon, an experienced chartered accountant and business strategist who excels at advising clients how to overcome growth and profitability issues. As a founder member of the Firm’s Business Strategy Group, formed in 2001, Mandy has worked with a wide variety of SMEs from a range of sectors over the years. Business owners and management teams have benefited from her help with developing robust strategic plans that have improved the value of their businesses.

Mandy will outline the basics of setting up in business from both a commercial viewpoint and from an administrative angle.

To keep the session interactive, she will mix the essentials of what to include in your business action plan, along with an overview of the practical administrative issues you need to consider, such as record keeping and HMRC expectations.

Both of these will boost your chances of success with your new business in terms of making sure you focus on the right activities to generate and maintain profitable sales and keep on the right side of HMRC.
