How we can help – IPA accelerator programme

Accelerate your business growth journey

Moore Kingston Smith is the only firm of accountants and advisers with a dedicated office of over 100 media specialists that proactively support the extensive range of business growth needs of independent media businesses.

We know it’s not just about the numbers. As well as providing accountancy, tax and corporate finance services, over the years, by working with some of the industry’s most successful companies, we have developed a deep understanding of what drives media businesses. As your trusted advisers we use this experience to work in partnership with you to help maximise your growth and profit potential. We conduct extensive research into industry performance every year with a view to understanding not just the benchmarking data, but also identifying what the best performers do to achieve exceptional results. Our well-developed structured approach to our strategic advisory services helps you effectively manage risks, build revenues, attract and engage people and identify key opportunities to improve performance and enterprise value.

All this means we are well placed to support you on your growth journey:

  • Outsourced finance and year-end accounting
    We can act as your full-time finance team so that you can focus on managing your new business or we can provide ad hoc support alongside completing your annual accounts and corporation tax filings.
  • Management accounts and key performance indicator analysis
    We can help you understand your numbers, monitor the most relevant ratios for your agency and compare your own performance against the industry averages and specific competitors.
  • Talent management
    Your employees are your most valuable asset. We can support you on all aspects, from payroll and people advisory, through to designing and implementing the most effective incentive scheme to ensure your talent are engaged and motivated.
  • Strategic growth and exit planning
    We do not just focus on the compliance but want to help agencies succeed. As businesses grow, leaders must manage a multitude of daily challenges and opportunities such as winning clients, managing people and keeping on top of finances. They often have little time for proactive strategic planning. Our business growth services, combined with our sector knowledge, help you work through these challenges to ensure you are getting the best out of your business.

Every agency is different, so we customise our support to suit. Please get in touch to discuss how we can partner with you on your business growth journey.
