Bigger Business

Budgeting

A good budget is a necessity in a good business plan. It is one of the best business tools we have, allowing us to set financial targets and measure our performance.

The techniques we utilize in the formation of financial projections will allow you to consider future scenarios and give you goals to strive for in your business.

In addition to goal setting value, budgets will often improve your chances of acquiring funding as financers often require forecasts as a prerequisite for funding approval. Cashflow forecasting is a vital part of ensuring your business will always have the cash it needs, because profits don’t pay bills – cash does.

There are many types of budgets and we can help you design the right budget for your needs and requirements. Let us show you how a budget and a cashflow forecast are able to provide feedback to allow you to prepare for the future of your business.

Cashflow Forecasting

Have you ever wondered if you are holding too much inventory? Is this the right time to expand your business? Are you going to have enough cash to pay all expenses every month?

Survival in today’s business climate requires you to spend more time working on your business rather than in the business.

We can provide you with accurate, timely and informative cashflow forecasting reports – allowing you to:

  • Realize and understand when cash is available
  • Plan and prepare for expansion, stock control, and taxes
  • Analyse and anticipate key expenses

Armed with this information, we’ll work with you to develop action strategies to improve your bottom line

Payroll Services

Administering your payroll can be time-consuming and divert you from the core activities of your business. Payroll & employment legislation is growing increasingly complex.

We can relieve you of this burden by providing a comprehensive and confidential payroll service, including:

  • Customised payslips
  • Administration of PAYE, statutory sick pay, annual leave etc
  • IR-Filing to the IRD
  • Summaries and analyses of staff costs
  • Administration of incentive schemes, bonuses and termination payments

Even if you have only a few employees, you will make savings by engaging us to administer your payroll.

Strategic planning

The pressures of daily business can often mean strategic planning takes a back seat – but to have a successful business you must plan ahead.

We’ll help you establish a strategic plan that looks at where you want your business to be in the next 3-5 years and exactly how you and your team can achieve these aims and objectives.

Your strategic plan will:

  • Define the characteristics of your company in three to five years
  • Identify your competitors
  • Define your objectives and financial goals
  • Put in place an effective implementation plan to achieve your goals
