Benchmarking Review

We can compare the results of your business compared with other businesses in your sector based on the recognised Companies House SIC codes. We can compare to whatever level of detail you require, giving you an ability to plan your business development based on the best performer in your sector.

Accounting Systems Installation

We have assisted many businesses with installation of their accounting software. We will ensure that the chart of accounts in your business is set to a standard that reflects the needs in your commercial sector and not just a standard chart of accounts produced by the software writers. We will advise on suitable back up routines and period end processes and set up your period end check lists.

One Page Business Plans

The balances scorecard developed by Kaplan and Allen Consulting has set the standard for the implementation of Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) in business. What really drives your business success? By the time your profit (or loss) has been determined, it is too late to do anything about it. It may be in your business that measuring leads generated and leads converted are absolutely key to future financial success. We will help you develop your own set of KPI’s for cash, profit, sales and cost drivers, as well as non financial measures such as consumer satisfaction and team happiness.

Cash Flow and Profit Forecasts

Why not let us produce a custom built cash flow and profit forecast for your business. This will help you measure actual results and identify where you are above or below expectations. Too many SME’s still run their business on a reactive and not proactive basis. The later a wrong course of action is corrected the further off course the business will get. Similarly the sooner a positive trend is identified then early exploitation can improve results exponentially.

Management Accounts

We can produce your management accounts on a monthly or quarterly basis. Our use of the Annual Moving Forecast ensures that you do not measure against static and inappropriate budgets.

Board Meetings

For a fixed fee we can attend your board meetings as virtual FD, minute taker, sounding board or impartial chairman. Research shows that even one person businesses who hold regular board meetings, produce better results than comparative businesses that do not.
