So, here is the serious bit… Square One is a business consultancy that offers free consultancy services to new and expanding businesses within the small to medium enterprise sector. On average 56% of startups don’t continue to trade beyond the three-year point, we are here to change that.
With our assistance we can ensure that your business is built on a solid foundation, our team is made up of professionals in various fields which allows us to understand every stage of opening a new business, whether it be business plan review, commercial property search, marketing or contract negotiations, we do it all.
We have worked hard to negotiate partnerships with many suppliers in different sectors which we can offer to our clients. Do you want to pay 75% less than the market average for a telephone line to be installed? We have it covered. Want a really good deal on those personalised coffee mugs? We have that covered too. Maybe you want to design a free logo without getting to the end of the process, to be told it will cost more than you make in a week? We have that covered too.

Running cost Report
A detailed Running cost report is the foundation of any successful business. Our running cost report feature will not only help you secure the finance you need, but will ensure the smooth running of your business.
Web & Digital
Website and marketing strategies are no longer considered a luxury, but an essential tool for growing your business. Sounds costly? Not with us! Discuss our pay monthly options with your Account Manager today.
Commercial Property Search
The right business premises speaks volumes about your business. But we can sometimes overlook the importance of key factors to consider. A tailored property search based on your budget, industry and your competition, let us do the leg work for you.
Whether you require start-up capital, looking to expand or cover an unforeseen cost, use our finance section to compare against 150 lenders without effecting your credit rating.
There is so much resource available for start-ups for those all-important documents you need to run a business efficiently, but we understand it can take a while to hunt them down, so we have already done the leg work so that you don’t have to.
There are so many different accountancy options available that it’s hard to decide what is right for your business. Then you have to consider if you are going to set up as a limited company or a sole trader or if you should be registered for VAT. So we have tried to explain it all a little clearer.
This is the section of the website where we recommend new products to you. Whether it be a new accountancy app, easy to use video promotion software or a new brand of coffee. We will have tried and rated the product so you don’t have to.
Yes, we are a business and as much as we love what we do we also have hobbies to fund and bills to pay just like everyone else. But we feel it’s important that as we may be potentially working together for years to come, that we are honest from the get-go.
As a consultancy that’s exactly what we do. We consult you, offer guidance and point you in the right direction so that you can go on to run a successful business, with us on hand should you need us, now the way our competition would monetise this is by charging you a fee for the services they offer.
However we know how important every penny to a startup is so we have negotiated terms with your possible suppliers so that should you choose to place your business with them, we will receive a set commission fee. In some industries this may result in you being placed with a supplier who pays the most commission. So to overcome that black cloud, we have the same fee no matter what suppliers you pick. That way we really are just trying to get you the best deals.
