Useful Accounting that can make a real difference…
Yes, we are qualified accountants that can do the year-end accounts and tax – but when you have business decisions to make, you need an accountant that really UNDERSTANDS BUSINESS – not just the numbers on the page.
We will be working alongside you as another member of your team – think of us as your ‘Finance Director’, who is there to make the decisions – and your life – easier. So it’s not just you making the decisions, we’ll be there with the expertise and the finance ‘tool-kit’ to make sure that you are making the right decisions, at the right time.
How we do this:
Management Accounts and Management Information
Not all accounting is the same! ‘Management Accounting’ could really be called ‘meaningful accounting’ or ‘useful accounting’ – it combines accounting, finance and management with leading edge techniques needed to drive successful businesses.
- Benchmarking your business
- The ‘Balanced Scorecard’ for your business
- Key performance Indicators (KPIs)
- Profitability analysis
- Customer Profitability
- Supplier Management
Business Planning & Budgeting
You’ve probably heard the saying “Failing to plan is planning to fail”. Having a well thought-out business plan – with goals and actions that need to be taken in order to make that plan happen – is critical to ensuring that your business achieves the success that you want. We can help you create that plan and implement it – and then help you monitor whether you are achieving the milestones along the way.
Cashflow Management & Forecasting
Cash is king – no business can survive long-term without managing their cash flow properly – both keeping up to date with what’s happening NOW and knowing what is around the corner.
Business Strategy & Advice
We can help you work out what is good in your business – and how to do more of that. We’ll also help you spot what needs improving, or what you may be better-off NOT doing – for example, are there some customers that are actually costing you more to look after than they bring in? Good information and analysis can bring this information to light – then you can act on it.
Could there be an advantage to you in setting up as a limited company, rather than being a sole-trader? We can look into this for you, work out the best option AND take care of the process and paperwork involved in making it happen.
