How We Work
We start with a free consultation at one of our offices, we’ll sit with you and discuss the details of your planned business venture over a cup of coffee or tea. Once we have a firm understanding of your business idea and your future goals for it, we will explain how we can help make those goals a reality. Of course, there are no strings attached to this meeting, if you don’t think we’re the right fit for you that’s completely fine.
Should you agree to use our business startup service though, you’ll benefit from all the perks of being an Aston Shaw client! All Aston Shaw clients are assigned a Client Manager who will be their sole point of contact, meaning you can build a meaningful relationship with someone who really understands your business rather than dealing with lots of people and never really establishing an all-important one-on-one relationship.
As a client of Aston Shaw, unlimited advice and support come as standard. You can call, email or pop into any one of our offices as much as you like and we’ll always do our very best to assist you. We suspect, however, that once you’ve visited our office and had a barista style coffee or one of the many cold drinks we have on offer, popping into our office to meet with your Client Manager will be your preferred mode of contact!
Our prices are always fixed fee and our payment methods are always flexible. Whether you would rather pay all in one go or spread the costs over the course of 10 months is completely up to you. We always strive to make things as convenient as possible for our clients.
