Tayside lawyers join expert business support initiative
Lawyers, bankers and accountants are joining forces to help companies in Perthshire, Tayside and Angus beat the recession.
The initiative sees solicitors Blackadders, the Clydesdale Bank and accountants EQ organising the distribution of a new business survival guide to more than 5,000 local firms.
The guide contains the advisers’ top 10 business tips, including “establish robust credit procedures – cash is king” and “stop working for customers who won’t pay, and take appropriate action”. Other issues covered in the guide include reviewing staffing arrangements and considering a business trading structure.
Free breakfast seminars are being arranged:
- Discovery Point, Dundee on Wednesday 11 February
- McDiarmid Park, Perth, on Thursday 12 February
- and the Stag Hotel, Forfar, on Friday 13 February.
Sandy Meiklejohn, a partner at Blackadders said: “Those who take action sooner rather than later are more likely to emerge leaner and fitter when things improve.”
