The collaborative working arrangement between the two businesses follows an increase in SMEs in the area now looking to grow following the pre-referendum uncertainty at the beginning of the year and the introduction of workplace pensions. Auto Enrolment, the low interest rates and grants now available have prompted businesses to turn to Mitchells for practical advice and help on setting up pensions and accessing grants and finance.

Richard Trueman, Managing Partner at Mitchells said: “We’re delighted to have Start Financial Planning on board with our Mitchells Financial Services product. Mitchells’ prides itself on both our practical accounting and business advice services, and the agreement with Start is a practical extension of this in response to client demand.”

Michael Heath, director of Start Financial Planning, explained:

“Historically financial advisers and accountants have worked independently of each other which is not necessarily in the best interests of business owners, particularly in the current economic climate.

“It made absolute sense to agree a collaborative working arrangement with Mitchells. By doing so we have created a one-stop-shop for owner managed businesses, offering practical advice in tax, accounting and investments, helping protect the financial future of the business for both the owner and employees.”

Richard added: “Start shares our passion for helping SMEs achieve their growth potential and through

our working partnership with Start, we are now able to offer our clients a better, seamless service when managing their business turnover and personal wealth.”

Thanks to the new collaboration with Start, Mitchells clients can be assured, that whether it’s pensions, investments, wealth management, Inheritance Tax Planning and advice on ISAs, shares, bonds and gilts, Mitchells Financial Services will provide the respected independent financial advice and assistance.
