“They’re typically pre-revenue or cash-poor, need a bit more guidance on budgeting and forecasting, and are more focused on raising capital, building an MVP, or R&D.”

Mr Stott told myGC that the biggest problem for e-commerce startups and customers is the lack of specialist accountants.

“Startups can’t afford the typical accountant, but need guidance and direction, especially in the early stages, to grow and get them to market,” he said.

“That’s where we can help. We specialize in the e-commerce and startup space, advising founders on exactly how to navigate this challenging yet exciting space.

“Having an advisor working with founders in a financial capacity to advise and guide them through the process is one of the best tools for startups and e-commerce businesses to break through that barrier and get them to the next level. superior.”

In a post-covid world, Mr Stott said focusing on future growth is one of the most crucial things for any business.

“Traditional accounting firms focus on back-end compliance rather than strategic growth of a business, but at Aero Group we are changing the way an accounting firm operates,” he said.

Guests can expect big bills, no fancy boardrooms, and, surprisingly, no suits.

“With an outside-the-box approach to any job, we work hard to satisfy our customers,” Mr. Stott said.

“Our business model focuses on a fixed cost approach. The client has certainty of what we are going to do and the process, how much it will cost and the resulting billing schedule as well. It gives them peace of mind and also allows them to be able to budget for that. »
