What to Expect

After your discovery call and signing your proposal for the services you need, we will arrange an onboarding meeting with your Onboarding Manager. Our team will walk you through our processes, talk over the services selected, and gather all the relevant information we need from you to get started.

Our onboarding process has been built to ensure you experience a smooth and easy transition to us and ensures we can quickly start to make a difference to your business. The steps could differ depending on the services selected, but here is an example of how we would onboard you for our Full Finance Function service.

Client Stories

“I moved to NA a few years ago after being very frustrated with my existing ‘high profile’ accounts firm; they made the whole process easy, despite my concerns about the switch. They took control of all the tasks I was trying to manage myself as well as the more complicated stuff. Now I never get stressed about accounts related issues & I actually look forward to meetings with the NA team. They’re friendly, accessible, good at what they do & go that bit further to keep clients happy & informed, with added value services as part of the package that other companies charge unnecessary fees for. I would highly recommend them & have done several times before to associates & friends in business.”
