A truly cost-effective way to set up your new business

If you are leaving a well-paid recruitment job to start your own business, your personal finances may be tight for a while as your new company starts to generate its first invoices.

At 3R, we are conscious of a recruitment entrepreneur’s personal finances during the early months and have structured our pricing to avoid chunky set-up charges and monthly subscriptions.

Our fees simply apply to what you invoice – we only charge a fee when you are making money.

When starting a new business, it is crucial to have a detailed understanding of your costs. We are committed to clear and transparent pricing and will provide you with three clear stages to help you account for every penny.

Understand what is included

We provide a comprehensive start-up service. However, certain overheads that you may require such as office space and IT equipment are not bundled into our overall service. Before anybody signs up with 3R, we produce a personalised, detailed proposal which explains everything, and help provide budget costs for anything that is not included.
