Wisteria Formations Releases New Complete Company Formation Guide

Wisteria formations, the UK’s leading online company formation agent, confirms the release of their complete company formations guide. Following an increasing number of enquiries from clients, Wisteria Formations can announce the release of the complete company formations guide. Wisteria Formations is one of the UK’s leading company formation agents. The company is backed by Wisteria Chartered Accountants, the accounting, tax and business plan specialists. They have been able to draw on all of this knowledge to produce a complete guide to incorporating a company in the UK, available for free download on their website, www.wisteriaformations.co.uk.

Andrew Millet, Director of Wisteria Formations and Wisteria Chartered Accountants, explains what prompted the release of the guide, “We often receive enquiries from clients regarding what they need to think about when setting up a company, as well as more specific queries. There is a lot of information available on the internet, but it was not easy for clients starting out for the first time to know where to look for it. In addition, you can’t always get all of the information you need in one place. The aim when producing our new company formation guide was to help our clients understand the process of forming their company and the things they need to think about. We have ensured it is easily found by placing a PDF version of it on our homepage in an accessible format.”

The company formations guide is designed to help people in a wide range of situations, from complete beginners to those who may have incorporated a number of companies before. It deals with issues arising at the conception of the business such as which business structure to use and takes you through the formation process step by step dealing with the issues you need to consider after formation. The majority of the guide is about how to go about forming a limited company and responsibilities you take on by doing so. This is useful for many new company formations as often people start a limited company without being fully aware of the responsibilities that they will take on as a director of a company.

Other information on the internet comes from many different sources and you will often find conflicting advice which can easily lead to a misunderstanding. The complete company formation guide aims to rectify this problem by taking people step by step through everything you need to consider when forming a limited company.

Wisteria Formations are happy to offer free support and advice when working through the online company formation process, through their UK customer support team. This, along with this the creation of the new company formations guide, will hopefully help to improve the understanding of limited companies in the future.

BT Business Has Launched A New Web-Based Accounting Application, To Replace The Complex Software Blighting Smaller Firms

BT Business has launched a new web-based accounting application, to replace the complex software blighting smaller firms, forcing their employees to work longer hours.


The launch of Xero, a new online tool designed for firms and their advisors, is supported by new research by BT Business which finds that almost 50 per cent of smaller business staff work extra hours to clear their current workloads, with 41 per cent admitting that they actually waste work time because of poor technology and systems.

Accessible f r o m any internet or mobile connection, Xero is aimed at helping businesses access, update, review and control their finances in the downturn anywhere, f r o m any device. The simple, software-as-a-service (SaaS) package will provide customers with 24/7 secure online access to bank transactions, invoices, reports, VAT returns and management reporting.

Chris Lindsay, general manager at BT Business applications, said: “Customer feedback is that traditional accounting packages are complicated to use, and can only be accessed while in the office. As a result, managers put book keeping off and spend too many late evenings or weekends in the office. Owner managers tend not to be finance experts, and dread having to file their accounts with these systems. The research shows that employees are working harder and longer during the downturn anyway, so we hope that Xero users will instantly be more productive and redress an often dire work/life balance.”

Xero is available as a free 30 day BT Business trial. Features include a real time dashboard of a firm’s transactions, online accrual to keep book-keeping up to date, daily bank reconciliation function, web-based accounting f r o m anywhere with an internet connection, expense claim processing and reporting for financial advisors.

Andrew Sandiford, head of Business Advisory and Assurance at Target feels that Xero eliminates all the problems of not feeling ‘part of the client’s business’ for his accountants: “With Xero, you can access a client’s accounts at any time. More importantly, you know you are looking at the same ‘version’ of the accounts as the client because there is only one ledger. Xero is fantastic for us, as it means we can offer ‘real-time’ advice, basing our recommendations on the up-to-date financial data we can see.”

Delivered as SaaS, Xero can also be implemented quickly without the upfront licence fees, maintenance or upgrade costs associated with on-premise software. Cloud computing applications like Xero reside online and are accessed by a simple web browser. Businesses only pay for the resources they use.

BT Business provides everything f r o m hands e t s to applications to help smaller firms work, share and manage common operational processes including Ribbit for Salesforce which is designed to improve sales team productivity, eSignature and CRM systems salesforce.com, Netsuite and SugarCRM.

Accounting firm Morrison, Brown, Argiz & Farra, LLP, has been listed as the 43rd largest firm in the nation, as ranked in the March 17th issue of an independent trade publication, Accounting Today. Additionally, MBAF maintained its number one position as Florida’s largest independent public accounting firm and rose to the 5th largest firm in the Southeast.

Published annually, the Accounting Today Top 100 recognizes the nation’s largest accounting firms based on fiscal performance. The 2008 results were based upon responses collected from more than 220 firms across the country, which reflected the largest candidate pools to date. The listing is widely accepted as one of the most reliable barometers of both the changes and the growth of the profession.

The firm assumed the top spot based on 2007 net revenues of over $55 million, representing a 30% increase from the previous fiscal year-end and exceeding the Top 100 average industry growth rate of 11%.

“This has been a stellar year for Morrison, Brown, Argiz & Farra which has resulted in a strong financial showing,” said Tony Argiz, managing partner of MBAF.

According to the report, MBAF’s exceptional growth for the year can be directly attributed to the expansion of the firm’s client-focused offerings, among of which include the formalization of its Private Wealth Group, the launch of an anti-money-laundering consulting practice and a new office location in Boca Raton.

MBAF is ranked in the top 50 accounting firms in the nation and is the largest Florida-based CPA firm in the State. The firm has been ranked as “Best of the Best,” the list of the top 25 performing firms in the country, for 12 years. For more information, please visit www.mbafcpa.com.
