Fashion

The UK is recognised as one of the most influential players in fashion designing, manufacturing and retailing. From entrepreneurial start-ups to high end corporate fashion brands, we act as their financial lynchpin in a competitive global marketplace.

SUPPORTING INFLUENTIAL DESIGNERS & GLOBAL FASHION

We support a diverse and highly influential portfolio of fashion clients including global high end fashion brands, models, prominent photographers, and well-known designers.

Our work might involve setting up and running an entire back office function for the UK operation of a foreign fashion house, including bookkeeping, accounting, ecommerce support, VAT compliance, tax planning and HR advice. Alternatively, a model, photographer or social media influencer may need guidance with managing cash flow, forecasting income, or tax advice around wealth planning, investments and acquisitions.

Whatever the structure, we work as part of our clients’ trusted management team, integral to their day-to-day finances and decision-making. We also have particular expertise in advising UK clients expanding overseas, and foreign businesses relocating to the UK.
