About Us

Unlike many other companies offering business advice, Cornwall Business Solutions comes from a banking and finance rather than marketing and PR background. Raising a company’s profile is important, of course, and we work with marketing partners to achieve that, but success will always be limited if sound business structures are not put in place first.

That means we can help with important things like business planning, incorporation of your business as a Limited Company, payment and de-risking solutions, training in sales, customer service, and people management, and much more.

When it comes to recommending providers of other services, we will point you to those who are right for you. As an independent agency our recommendations are unbiased.

We will highlight the pitfalls and ask the difficult questions, but we will also address them. We will tell you whether your business idea is viable and, if it isn’t, we will find ways of strengthening it. We will offer different approaches to improve the end result.

Are you nervous about approaching your bank manager for financial help? We will tell you what he or she will want to know, and how to respond.

At Cornwall Business Solutions we like to keep things simple. We avoid confusing you with jargon and ‘legalese’, we set out plans that are easy to understand and put into action, and we do everything we can to make your life easier.

We think you will enjoy working with us and we very much look forward to working with you.
