Cygnets Business Start-Up Programme


Cygnets Programme

Welcome to Cygnets - a launch accelerator for start-ups; providing support, resource, experience, and reassuring guidance as you find your feet.

Having heard the phrase “I wish I had known that when I started my business” Cygnets was born. Giving new business owners such as yourself, all the basic information to run a business; helping to build strong foundations for your business future.


The Cygnets programme is designed to support start-up businesses and help them to build strong foundations for growth. The package can be tailored to match any stage of start-up business from legal registrations and incorporations to the end of your first financial year.

The full package is accessed via Microsoft Teams and will guide you through all you need to develop your business. You can work your way through from beginning to end or dip in and out, gaining information as you need it.

We train you to help you understand and make the best use of your accountancy software, along with the guidance for choosing the best package to suit your needs. As your business expands we can support you with the payroll bureau and making payroll calculations.

Cygnets' allows you to get on with the critical task of developing your business, whilst we take care of the administration.

Cygnets Modules - A Brief Overview

The Cygnets programme is broken down into 10 bite-size modules. Subscribers have access to all modules and can work through them in their own timescale. You can also then use them as a library to refer back to when the need arises.

Swann Systems gives you peace of mind. They have a good team of experienced and well-trained people. The way Sheila treats my company with attention and care, defending my interest against third parties makes Swann the right decision for accounting, taxes and general companies advice.

I would just like to thank you and your team, particularly Caroline, for doing such an amazing job. I get the reports I want, and everything is done in a timely and professional way. This leaves me with the time I need to run my business and not have to worry about the book-keeping.
