Business Development for Profit Improvement
Every year you have annual accounts produced that tell you how well the business did last year. Business owners tend to prefer to look forward rather than look back and while useful lessons can be learned from looking at past track record, we also need to look at other meaningful information to be able to drive the business forward.
Businesses need to set goals and objectives and translate these into budgets and future targets. This allows the owners to measure actual performance against target and then fine tune the plans.
As well as comparing your results to target and previous years, we can produce benchmarking information to allow you to compare your performance with others in your industry. This allows us to look at the worth of your business and assess the value you are adding each year.
You can then use this information to develop future plans for performance as well as looking into the long term at your exit strategy.
We can help you look at your business in more depth, reviewing key factors such as the number of customers, sales levels and prices, overhead costs, profits and the tax to pay, but also looking at other issues such as how many hours you have to work a week and how many weeks holiday you can take a year and how you can improve your work life balance.
