Manage your team spendings with smart software
Looking for a sophisticated tech solution that allows you to manage your company’s transactions in one place? Spend management solution Payhawk offers company cards, expense management software, AP (Accounts Payable software), invoice management and subscription management, among other features. The Payhawk cards have built-in controls, so finance teams and managers can set their own spend limits, ATM withdrawal caps and approval workflows for fund requests. This means there’s almost zero risk of overspending. Cards are also connected to Payhawk’s innovative expense management software, so payments are seen in real time and your finance team can monitor cash flow and budgets. At the same time, Payhawk’s OCR (Optical Character Recognition) tech makes receipt data capture easy, while integrations with ERPs (enterprise resource planning platforms) and accounting software mean that all spend data is perfectly synced.

Stay compliant with a smart health and safety platform
Manage any workplace incidents or accidents easily and efficiently by downloading Notify.

Employees, contractors and visitors can report issues on the go, while customers gain clear visibility on the importance your business attaches to safety, health and environmental compliance. Digital audit trails (tracking the progress of an incident after it’s logged), photographs and video (which can be added to the app) support clients with incident investigations and claims management. Notify also offers software for audits, inspections and risk assessments, providing companies with a fully digital safety, health and environmental management system.

Discover a different way to sell your business
Looking for a potentially lucrative exit strategy? An employee ownership trust (EOT) could be worth considering. EOT is an ownership structure where a trust is established to hold a controlling interest in a limited company on behalf of the company’s employees. It offers many benefits to a business owner, including the ability to sell the business at fair market value, while removing the need to negotiate with third-party buyers. There are also financial benefits, such as potentially lower transaction expenses, the sale of a controlling interest to the EOT being exempt from capital gains tax, and the ability to distribute excess cash to the vendors tax-free as part of equity value. Employees never obtain direct ownership of shares held by the trust, but they do receive financial benefits such as qualifying for income tax-free bonuses and tax-advantaged share schemes.
