Advisory Services

Burton Sweet’s way of working may not be unique, but we certainly believe it sets us apart from many. Far from being a group of solely (and soulless) number crunchers, we are a mixed team of people that provides expertise and experience in a diverse range of business and commercial sectors.

Yes, we can complete your tax return. And yes, we can submit your company’s annual return to Companies House. But our ability to provide broader advisory services means we often become vital partners to our clients, helping them to steer their course through the business world.

Advice on specific issues

You can obtain our balanced advice on most topics that might influence your business’s success.

Asset and vendor finance
Do you buy or lease? Do you customers buy or lease from you? Weighing up the pros and cons is invaluable when it comes to choosing whether to invest in an asset or set up a fixed term leasing agreement. Leasing keeps working capital within the business, negates the need for a substantial investment, reduces risk and improves margins.

Burton Sweet Asset Finance is a joint venture with Cabot Asset Finance.

Accounting and payroll software and IT Support
Understanding both the end product and all the stages taken to get there, we are very well placed to advise on procurement of accounting software and IT hardware. We are happy to support you in the implementation of both, and the subsequent training of accounting software and IT software as well as the training of internal teams looking after payroll.
