Following a successful event in September, advisers from the D2N2 Growth Hub and Beeston-based Wren Accountancy will be on hand on Wednesday 22nd November to offer advice and support on how to grow your business.

D2N2 Growth Hub Health Checks will provide:

  • Valuable advice and insight to help existing businesses flourish,

  • Relevant information on access to finance to expand, guidance on the latest legislation or practical business support,

  • The right advice for business needs.
  • These sessions are most suited to businesses who have been trading for over a year, and those who are looking to grow, expand, and operate within the B2B sector (businesses selling/servicing to other businesses).

    Wren Accountancy advice sessions include:

  • Tax and accountancy support to pre-start, start up and existing businesses including business trading in the most appropriate structure (sole trader, partnership, limited company, Community Interest Company, etc), what is the best accounting or book-keeping package for businesses and tips on ways to keep business tax liability to a minimum.

  • Free guides on Starting Up in Business, Tax Saving Tips and 57 Ways to Grow Your Business were also available to those interested.
  • Previous attendees to these one-to-one sessions spoke of the “really helpful and professional advisers”, with some stating that “they took away barriers to starting up."

    The sessions are hosted by D2N2 Growth Hub and Wren Accountancy in partnership with Broxtowe Borough Council and are made possible thanks to funding by the European Regional Development fund and Wren Accountancy’s support.

    Once connected with the D2N2 Growth Hub, the businesses who attended have access to workshops and events, regular updates on the latest funding news and regional or national programmes that will help with growth plans.
