You don’t need to be an expert in all things finance to run your own business, that’s where we come in!
Your outsourced finance function
Fingers in too many pies? It’s time to stop wasting your precious resource on juggling financial tasks you don’t have the time or confidence to do correctly.
Small businesses simply don’t need an entire finance department, they just need to find a reliable, outsourced service to do it for them. By tapping into our finance and payroll services, you get access to a team of down-to-earth experts who are rooting for your food and drink business to succeed.
Our finance team is your finance team
Why outsource your financial tasks? Why not?! We act as your bookkeeper, accountant, payroll professional and finance director – all in one efficient and convenient package, which is ideal for small, growing businesses.
At Portt & Co, we take away the pressure so that you have the time and data to manage and grow your business. Let’s face it, you didn’t start your business so that you could spend most of your time worrying about bookkeeping or accounting, or dreading the monthly payroll!
Our finance team is perfect for start ups and growing businesses in the food and drink industry. Having managed the finance functions of small restaurants, right up to £200m manufacturing operations, we have the skills and experience to advise organisations on the structure and efficiency of their internal finance function.
The great thing about our finance team is that as your business grows, you don’t have to worry about hiring additional staff. Our service grows alongside yours, making sure you get everything you need for whatever stage you’re at.
Don’t worry, we’re honest, we know that the time will come when your business outgrows us and you’ll be big enough for your own finance team – to us, that counts as success. We’ll even help you to set it up and offer guidance and support.
When we act as your outsourced finance function, this can include support services, such as:
- Real-time Xero bookkeeping
- Sales invoicing
- Credit control
- Facilitating payments
- Management accounting
- Payroll and auto enrolment
Strategic Financial Support
Where a few hours or days of strategic support are required, we can offer this either remotely across the UK or on site in London and Somerset. When working with larger companies, we are happy to work alongside an in-house Finance Director or Accountant. Our outsourced finance department is tailored to your business needs, so think of us as an extended arm of your team.
If you’re looking for a consultancy only service, that’s fine too. We will review your current processes, suggest and configure a new structure and then train your team to operate the new procedures.
As a B Corp, we’re part of a growing community of people using business as a force for good.
Our entire social and environment impact has been measured and we’re proud to have achieved certification in February 2022.
We’re a likeminded team who share a vision to make a difference and helping our clients to do the same.
You can rely on us, we’re honest and trustworthy. You can’t depend on someone who will simply tell you what you want to hear!
