For Businesses and Startups

What is ESG accounting?

A good accountant identifies opportunities that you never knew existed like potential cost savings, tax efficiencies or government grants. As well as making sure your books are accurate, on time and comply with laws and regulations.

ESG accounting does exactly the same. Take an electric vehicle for example, in many countries there are purchase incentives and tax breaks that mean you can get a top-of-the line vehicle at a fraction of the cost.

Does ESG affect my business? Take 30 seconds to find out now.

Over 10,000 owners of small businesses just like yours are concerned that getting involved will be costly and a big time commitment. To find out if ESG effects your business just answer “yes” or “no” to these six questions.

Let's start with the here and now…

Does your business have financial accounts and records for 1 full year?

Do you currently provide goods or services as part of a large company’s supply chain (i.e. a public company or one with over 500 employees or 250 in France)?

Do you currently have external investors (not friends and family)?

It looks like you need ESG Accounting

And that's not bad news. Professional ESG accounting helps small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) to identify the opportunities of ESG and unlock up to 4% more profit. And because it's online and purpose-built for SMEs, it only takes 2-4 hours and costs £1,000-£3,000 (based on the number of employees), so you only pay what’s fair for your business.
 

Now thinking about your plans for the future. In the next 2 years…

Are you likely to grow your team and hire more staff?

Are you likely to get a bank loan to invest in the business?

Are you considering raising capital from external investors (i.e. seed investors, venture capital, private equity, public listing)?

You don't need ESG accounting right now

Based on your answers you probably don't need to get involved with ESG right now, but you might choose to. Professional ESG accounting helps small and medium-size businesses to identify the opportunities of ESG and unlock up to 4% more profit.
