Business advice – with over 30 years in industry and having had to deal with most of the day to day issues which successful businesses have to face I believe that I can offer good practical support.
These are some of the areas which I have dealt with in the past:
1.Budgets,forecasting and cash flow planning.One area where the reality can be completely different from the theory.It is so easy to get swept away with the numbers so you always need to sense check what you are saying.
2. Costing.How do you cost your services and products? There are many different ways to do this and you might need to change the method over time.
3. Lost records and tax investigations. If you need to reconstruct previous accounting records or to deal with the figures behind a tax investigation then I can help. I learned my accountancy skills before computers started to automate bookkeeping and this expertise has proven invaluable time and again.
4. Staffing decisions.Having to restructure your workforce can be incredibly stressful. You have to balance financial requirements against your commitments to loyal employees. I have been through this process many times and can help you to make sense of it.
5.Overheads. We all know these should be reduced and tightly controlled.But sometimes you do need to spend to grow and it can be useful to have someone to talk to about the options.
