Portt & Co

Who We Support

Small businesses

Supporting small food and drink businesses to be successful is our bread and butter.

Small businesses are vital to our economy, not only do they account for 90% of all businesses across OECD (The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries, they also account for three fifths of employment in the UK’s private sector.

As a small business ourselves, we know how to provide the very best support to help your business grow. Sorting your accounts and navigating payroll can be stressful when you’re trying to focus on KPIs, developments and moving forward. We take ownership of the services you request and ensure that you can have time to focus on what you do best.

Our outsourced finance function at Portt & Co is tailored to those businesses in the food and beverage industry. We have a wealth of experience in this sector and can make efficiencies in your business based on our knowledge of the sector.

Our payroll bureau service best suits businesses of under 500 employees, but serves businesses from all industries and sectors. Our trained and efficient payroll team can ensure your employees are paid accurately and on time, with minimal stress!


Growing from a startup ourselves means that we understand how to help businesses grow and succeed.

Startups…we’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt (with Portt & Co embroidery). When you’re first setting up your food and drink business things can feel daunting, stressful and uncertain, but most of all exciting!

You’ll want someone to support you through it who has been there themselves and has vast experience in your sector, that’s where we come in.

We start by listening and then listening some more. It’s important that we learn everything about your startup, not just where you began and where you are now, but where you want to be.

From there we’ll be able to offer our advice, expertise and provide you with the best support possible. From everything to setting up your company to Xero add-ons and apps.


It’s easy to find an accountant, but not as easy to find one who genuinely cares about your cause.

We’re proud to have supported a number of charities over the years, from payroll, to our Virtual Finance Director and fully outsourced Finance Department packages.

We understand that as a charity it’s not cost-effective for you to employ large staff teams to look after your finances or run your payroll, that’s where we come in. We guarantee you a high quality service, provided by a team of experts who are passionate about helping you succeed.
