CASHFLOW, FORECASTING AND MANAGEMENT REPORTS

Poor cashflow is the number one reason businesses fail.

So important, usually overlooked. In these Covid times though, banks are wanting to see these more and more. We ditch the spreadsheets and use software to speed it up report production and reduce errors.

What's more, we talk to you in language you understand.

Cashflow planning is best practice in any business and critical to survival and growth. 

Setting targets and monitoring your actual cashflow against your forecast will enable you to predict large cash outflows and respond to changes in your business.

Whether your bank has requested a Cashflow Forecast or not, every business owner needs an understanding of cash and liquidity for better decision making.  All businesses should have a Cashflow Forecast in place at the beginning of the new financial year.  Having said that, we can prepare one at any time. 

Cashflow Management Coaching

Helping our clients look ahead with confidence is core to our purpose as your accountants.  We want to work with you beyond preparing a Cashflow Forecast. 

Our Cashflow Management Coaching service has been designed to treat the underlying causes of poor cashflow - starting with your Cash Conversion Cycle.

Together we’ll conduct a thorough review of the potential causes of your cashflow challenges.  We will set annual goals and devise a 90 day action plan for improvement and hold you accountable to implementing simple strategies to maximise cashflow. 

Inadequate cashflow is a symptom of management problems in a business, NOT the cause.  We must fix the underlying issues.

Benefits of Cashflow Management Coaching:

  • Monitor actual cashflow against forecast in your accounting or reporting software

  • Allows you to predict and plan for large cash outflows

  • Understand key cashflow drivers and your business’s Cash Conversion Cycle

  • Identify ways to avoid late payment penalties and interest

  • Improve your relationships with financiers and suppliers

  • Gain an understanding of cash and liquidity for better decision making

  • Peace of mind that your cashflow needs are known and properly funded

  • Improve business processes to boost cashflow, profit and business value

  • Drive your business to achieving your goals in a managed way

Profitable businesses can experience extreme cashflow problems, just as unprofitable businesses can survive if they’re well-funded. 

Understanding the difference between profit and cash and your business’s Cash Conversion Cycle is essential for your business to be viable in the long-term.

Contact us today - the sooner we complete a Cashflow Forecast for you, the sooner we can work together to agree strategies for improvement.

SUCCESSION PLANNING

Having an effective Succession Plan encourages the growth and sustainability of your business….

A robust Succession Plan takes a minimum of 3 - 5 years from initial planning to implementation.  To extract maximum value from your business you must have one in place.

Succession Planning allows you to transition your business to new ownership in a managed and systematic way; reducing stress while achieving a greater outcome.

It’s not just about extracting maximum value from your business.If you were hit by a bus tomorrow, how seamless and pain free would the immediate transition be - both for your business and for those who rely on it?

We will work with you to develop your Succession Plan by identifying your succession options, clarifying your objectives - considering business, personal and family expectations - and defining the steps you’ll take to achieve them.

Lack of planning can cause unnecessary stress and compromise your sale price, client relationships and your overall business reputation.

Whether you want to sell, pass on to a family member or simply take a more passive role, taking time to plan now will benefit all involved.

Succession Planning is a process; not an event… the earlier you start planning the greater the outcome for everyone involved.

Benefits of Succession Planning:

  • Determine what you want from your business

  • Stimulate strategic discussion around ‘what if’ scenarios

  • Clarify your succession process, defining tasks and actions to maximise your outcome

  • Prioritise key goals and milestones

  • Achieve alignment amongst owners / family members

  • Develop a tool to communicate your Succession Plan with family and other key stakeholders

  • We’ll act as an impartial sounding board to help you make decisions

We’ve developed this service to ensure that when you do exit you get the maximum return on the hard work and capital you’ve invested, and that the expectations of all parties are successfully met.

It’s crucial to consider Succession Planning as an important aspect of your overall business strategy that requires regular reflection and ongoing development.

Many business owners don’t recognise the importance of Succession Planning until it’s too late, resulting in a stressful journey and significantly reduced sales outcome.

Call us now to get started on Succession Planning so that you can extract the maximum value from your business with minimal stress.
