It is said that a good accountant can save you money. At the same time we believe with this Business Improvement Programme, we can also help you achieve real success.
So what is included?
Originally based on the research of what the UK's successful businesses do every year, and developed over the last 5+ years, we offer you an 8 step Business Improvement Programme.
However, you decide how much input and support you want, which step or steps you need and the programme is then personalised to suit your business and requirements.
The programme includes planning, forecasting, measuring, evaluation, comparison, improvement and valuation.
Here's a little more information, but we invite you to meet with us and discuss what each step really means for you.
Step 1: Decide what you want really want to achieve
Start with the end in mind. We will work with you to really understand your business objectives and personal goals. We will establish how you will measure your success and ensure that the business planning process covers all the key issues. This is a key stage to understand the purpose of your business and how the success will be achieved, whilst identifying those key factors that helps drive your motivation, decision making and strategy.
As part of this step, we will assist with your forecasting and budget, to plan how the numbers will need to work to deliver your objectives. From step one, you will have clarity of the activities in your business that need your time, attention and commitment. Our 3-way forecasting enables you to create an effective forecast with relevant reports that help you manage the business, make key decisions and plan for the future.
Step 2: Measure how well you actually perform each month
We help measure those key drivers that matter for your business, using a range of tools and analysis work. We will produce a regular summary of your financial performance with management accounts information and performance reports.
This step enables you to react to situations in a timely manner and not when it is too late or the opportunity has been missed. We will share our experience and expertise to reflect on the numbers to keep you on track to achieve your objectives.
We have a saying: Turnover and profit are only outcomes. We will help you to identify what is influencing your headline numbers and make the numbers work in relation to your business.
Step 3: Measure your full year's performance
For this step, we will evaluate your financial performance using a range of ratios and trend analysis. This evaluation step will clearly show how the business has performed year on year and what has influenced the changes.
We will review your business, using a sensitivity analysis, to suggest how certain improvements can make a difference in your business. This could be more sales, the improvement of your margins or driving lower costs, but at all times we will keep in balance, your objectives, your team, your customers and your suppliers.
We want all our clients to be successful, so work with them to establish an improvement plan and establish how this can be practically delivered in their business.
