Raising Funding

Whether you're an ambitious start-up looking for seed capital or an established business looking to grow through fresh funding or flotation, an understanding of the proper procedures and who to approach will maximise your chances of success and help you avoid the many possible pitfalls.

Funding Options

At the heart of any successful funding is a coherent strategy, and at Berley we will help you construct a sound corporate approach and the appropriate legal framework to accompany your application for loan or equity capital. We'll work closely with you and your solicitor to ensure that the application stands the best chance of success, and we will look to capitalise on the wide range of available government schemes and grants.

We're experienced in overseeing fundraising through a full range of potential sources including:

  • Government grants and incentives
  • Bank loans and overdrafts 
  • Mortgage finance  
  • Instalment credit
  • Issuing shares

Planning for growth

For growing businesses looking to expand through the public issue of shares, we can guide you through the process of entering an Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) or obtaining a listing on the Stock Exchange.

Berley's approach

There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all business funding advice. At Berley, we believe in supporting entrepreneurs and giving them the best advice that is bespoke to their business. We know that getting the right source of funding is key to making your business a financial success. You may have a good idea but you may find that if you follow a funding route, things may not always come up roses. Getting a second opinion from experienced entrepreneur accountants like Berley can ensure that this doesn’t happen.

We represent a diverse cross section of the business community, which provides us with broad range of expertise across all sectors that we are happy to pass on to you. These include, but are not limited to:

Understanding which funding option works best for your circumstances can be difficult, and that’s why we will put all our experience into finding you a solution that works for you.
