Initial Consultation / Appointment Request

If you would like to speak with one of our business advisors, we will set up an appointment with you for your initial consultation. During the initial consultation, the consultant will review with you your personal facts and circumstances, discuss the options which may be appropriate for you, and provide you with a fee/retainer quote. If you are outside the UK, Coddan can provide an initial consultation by phone, post or via e-mail.

Please bring any documents you have regarding your case to your initial consultation appointment. If you have a phone or e-mail consultation, please fax your documents to us ahead of time.

When you schedule the telephone appointment, we will require a credit card to secure the consultation. One of our business consultants will speak with you on the date and time scheduled.

We do not know of any experienced professionals who provide free consultations with new clients. You may want to contact the Business Link (http://www.businesslink.gov.uk/) at 0845 6000 787 to get information on their referral service.

  • Date and time of consultation

  • Business objectives

  • My situation engages

  • My current accountant does not explain what all the numbers on the reports he/she gives me mean.
    I do get an explanation of what the numbers mean in theory, but I don't know how they relate to my business.
    My current accountant is okay with explaining the numbers to me but he/she doesn't have the time/skills to do anything else to help me do something about them .

  • I am too busy running my day-to-day operations to implement any profit or growth improvement strategies.
    I'm not sure the time that me or my staff will spend on any strategy will be worth the end result.
    I would devote some time to profit or growth strategies if I knew which one to make a priority.

  • I'm doing okay, but could really use some fresh ideas to invigorate me and/or my staff.
    I'm having difficulty moving to the next business life stage (e.g., I seem to be stuck in the start-up phase, etc.).
    It seems as though my competitors are doing much better than I am and I can't put my finger on why.

  • I need a review of my current business structure (e.g., I am a sole proprietor but I'm thinking of incorporating or taking on a partner, etc.).
    I am thinking of selling or closing my business or parts of it.
    I am thinking of starting a new business.
