We are pro-active in our dealings with you. Wherever possible we will help and advise you to get the best from your business. This is the way we do business – if we can help you do well, we will ultimately be rewarded by an increase in our business.
Clients often consider us as an additional director, trying to improve the overall profitability of the business.
However, sometimes this may not be enough. You may need help on a more formal basis. Perhaps you are expanding, purchasing another business, have a specific problem etc. In these cases you may want to employ us as consultants to look in depth and produce reports and recommendations.
You can discuss all aspects of your business in confidence and decide whether a consultancy role is appropriate.
Rest assured that our charges will not be excessive and we will agree these with you in advance.
An experienced outside viewpoint can often be the catalyst to making your business grow. You are involved in the day to day operation which often makes it difficult to step back and take a critical, unbiased, look at the overall picture. Our Management Consultancy service does just that, examining the methods used and the aims of the business, taking full account of the individual needs of the owners. Asking the awkward questions can make you reappraise the direction in which your business is headed – then suggesting ways to achieve what you want.
Surprisingly simple, and inexpensive, changes highlighted during the consultation can make significant differences to the profitability of your business.
You may not actually want to increase your profits but are trying to find ways of reducing your involvement, or finding a successor – or possibly preparing your business for sale. Our extensive expertise covers manufacturing, retail and service industries and we have experience of marketing and promotion, training, import, export etc. Because we are also accountants, our feet are always firmly on the ground and we are aware that all suggestions must be cost effective.
Whatever your requirement, we should be able to help. A chat will cost you nothing and you can assess us – and may get some free initial thoughts. Call us on (01509) 816150.
The majority of businesses only bother with a Business Plan when they start looking for a loan. They are often taken aback by a bank’s request to provide a Business Plan and Cashflow.
They then create a Business Plan aimed at getting the funding they want.
This often bears little relationship to reality and is generally dumped in a drawer and never looked at again once the loan is in place.
Really successful businesses have a plan which they consult regularly and compare what they have actually achieved with what they planned to achieve. Having a plan is a fundamental requirement of a successful business. If you were setting off to sail across the Atlantic you would have a reasonable idea of how you were going to get there. You wouldn’t simply head off in a westerly direction (Columbus did, but he was probably lucky – and he didn’t end up where he wanted to go).
