Established Businesses

Looking for great advice to save tax, save time and help you to continue to build real wealth?

Successful, established businesses still need great advice. Business goals may have changed but you know you can’t stand still. Challenges still come along as you consider further growth, expansion, a partial or full exit or succession to the next generation. Or it maybe you feel you are simply paying way too much tax or need to restructure your business to save time? Whatever it is, it’s time for the next chapter.


We work with good businesses; those with a track record of success or a determination to find even more success – people who have dreams and who value service. We want to help you fulfil your goals and ambitions.

For almost 30 years, the Friend & Grant team have helped hundreds of businesses, like you, fulfil their dreams and prepare for the future. For example:

  • We firstly establish your business and personal goals using our unique One Page Business Plan. Understanding your destination means we can finely tune the services you’ll need.
  • We make sure we deliver a quality compliance service: everything prepared and filed on time.
  • We know every business owner needs support. It can be lonely at the top, with few people to bounce ideas off. We give you that support when you need it.
  • We are cloud accounting experts: Xero, Sage and Quickbooks accounting software.
  • We can work with you to raise finance and funds for new projects.
  • We will advise you how to reduce the tax burden, making sure you pay the legal minimum by looking forward as well as backwards and offering great tax advice.
  • We will work with you to identify and mitigate the risks in your business. We’ll discuss with you how to get the most from your business and how best to protect it.
  • We can provide bespoke planning on a range of taxation, accounting and business topics.
  • We can make sure your retirement is what you want, and with proactive estate planning / inheritance tax planning we can protect your wealth for the next generation.

Martin & Marilyn Harman
Kent Orchard Services Ltd Teynham

We have been in business for ten years and have long been looking for a reliable firm of accountants that best suit our needs – we now believe we have found that in Friend and Grant. They came highly recommended, and although they are not local to us, it has been well worth travelling to meetings at their Rochester offices.

They advised us that we needed to change to a limited company and handled the registration and changeover from our old partnership smoothly and efficiently. They are now handling all our accounts and advising us on all aspects of our business.

We have found all at Friend and Grant approachable, friendly and professional, from the receptionist Julie, to Simon our advisor, and Mark the managing director. Queries are dealt with promptly, and nothing is ever too much trouble. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

Larry Maynard – APG Ltd

We have worked together now through two recessions and there is little doubt that without the help you gave us last year with your cash flow forecast, which highlighted some serious times ahead and your suggestions for the various changes we would have to make to avoid these potential problems we could have found ourselves in dire straits.

Our 3 step risk-free guarantee puts your mind at rest and keeps us on our toes!
