The First Business Team has 19 years’ experience in helping organisations in both the charitable and commercial sectors with a range of specialisms including the arts, new tech and media. We help your organisation with forecasting, planning, budgeting, mentoring, company set up plus HMRC and Companies House submissions and grant funding options.

Our dedicated team of specialist freelancers will flight check your organisation to ascertain any improvements to be made in your structure, procedures and practices, finance and sustainable budgeting, marketing and promotional activities including social media. They will recommend changes or additions your organisation should make for future progress.

As well as business advice and mentoring, we also have experience in navigating the tangled web of grant funding. Our experienced team can help with selecting the right grant for you, help to prepare your proposal and ensure your organisation has the best chance of success.  Recent challenges such as the pandemic and cost of living crisis, changed the funding landscape and saw our team successfully secure grants for a range of businesses and organisations helping them to survive the pandemic and go on to grasp new opportunities, expand their horizons and offering new services and projects.

Once funding has been secured, our team help you manage the process of reconciliation, submitting reports and accounts to the Charity Commission, HMRC, the grant funding organisation and Companies House. Well organised reports and submissions help with future grant applications.
