Nordens’ Spotlight – Securing Funding To Grow Your Business With MarketFinance’s Steve Lomax
Securing funding is a common occurrence in businesses of all shapes and sizes, enabling you to take the next step in growth and success. Many businesses automatically head directly to the bank thinking it would naturally secure the best type of funding for their circumstances. However, often this is certainly not the case with many financial lenders able to provide a more comprehensive and appropriate package which adheres to the client’s best interests. We work with a number of financial…
Personal Tax Returns (PTRs) – All You Need To Know

  Why I Founded Nordens
Accounting 2 You

In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier. The difficult part, for me, was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
