What we do
At intelligentPA we hit the ground running. When we work with you we appoint a dedicated assistant who is experienced in your industry – so we won’t waste valuable time learning about your sector.
We’ll spend that time getting to know you, your company and its culture and values. That way we can quickly integrate ourselves into your business and start acting as part of your team, complete with a dedicated company telephone number and email address.
So whatever tasks we’re performing for you, whether that’s social media updates or managing your diary, your clients and suppliers won’t know we’re an outsourced agency – as far as they’re concerned, we’re just another member of your growing empire.
But as well as us taking on all the mundane but essential admin tasks that keep your business running smoothly, you’re getting access to experts who can really help your startup thrive.
Our team consists of accountants and HR professionals who have decades of experience in the corporate world. So we can advise you on targeted, strategic growth and help you take the steps you need to dominate your sector.
So what exactly is it we do and how do we do it?
Not many of us start a business because we love a bit of bookkeeping. So it’s no surprise that for many of you this is the most stressful aspect of running your own business.
But fortunately for you we do love a bit of bookkeeping. Our finance experts will stay on top of your cashflow and management reporting, so you know exactly what’s coming in and going out on a monthly basis.
We’ll keep your accounts right up to date, and even complete your tax returns. All you need to do is send us your receipts and enjoy the strange sensation of feeling relaxed whenever you hear the phrase HMRC.
It’s the biggest step in growing your business. And unfortunately it’s the part that’s the biggest headache.
Taking on a new member of staff is a big decision. And an expensive one. Because you can waste a lot of money if you don’t know the best way of finding the best candidate.
From establishing your exact requirements, advertising the role, screening the applicants, arranging candidate interviews to putting a contract in place, we can do it all.
But our HR experts will also ensure help you get up to speed with employment law, so you don’t fall foul of the wide ranging legal responsibilities of being someone else’s boss.
From intimate training workshops to flamboyant soirees that wow your clients, we can plan and organise events that firmly put your business on the map.
Perhaps you need us to find a high-end networking location, complete with guest speakers, caterers and entertainment. Or maybe just a small room with 10 seats and a projector.
Whatever your requirements you just tell us when the event is taking place and who you want invited and we’ll do the rest.
Love them or hate them, meetings are the life blood of your business. But arranging when you and your client or supplier are available can take up much more of your valuable time than the actual meeting. Especially when there’s several parties involved.
So why not leave the logistical headaches and flurry of emails to us?
We’ll find out the times you are available, within a specified window, and before you know it all the integral appointments you need to grow your business will be booked in.
When you’ve set up your own business you’re going to be overwhelmed by phone calls. Unfortunately, not all of them are going to be the ones you want to receive.
Do you really want to discuss how you’re entitled to compensation from the car accident you didn’t have, when you’re rushing to meet a deadline?
Whether you want us to man your phones throughout the working week – or just be available when you aren’t – we’ll take messages, turn annoying salespeople away and only contact you when it’s the life changing business call you’ve been waiting for.
Or your mum – we know she’s important too. But we can also sweet talk her if it’s a particularly busy day.
Whether you’re a slave to the notification or check your inbox at regimented intervals with yogic discipline, how often does email bring your productive flow to an abrupt halt?
How many nights have you laid awake wondering how relaxed you’d be if you could just get your overflowing inbox down to double figures?
It’s an integral part of business but you’ll be amazed at how your productivity soars once we filter out all the unnecessary crap and only trouble you with the emails you really need to see, when you need to see them.
But company finance isn’t just about keeping the books in order. And the more you grow, the more difficult it can be know your assets from your cashflow.
We understand that while you’re experts in your field business finance can be a complex subject to understand.
We’re not ones to brag but our clients tell us where we really make a difference to their business is by demystifying finance. We toss the financial jargon aside and explain our approach in a simple manner. So you can focus on business growth while we focus on the financial strategy.
Unfortunately there’s a downside to business growth. The bigger you get, the more admin there is.
But when you’re focussing on meeting client’s deadlines and landing new contracts you don’t have time to think about setting up a virtual phone line or setting up social media accounts for your business.
But you don’t need to worry about that, because as you probably know, we do virtually everything.
