How can I help you?

I believe in a profit first philosophy, traditional accounting teaching us to focus on sales and expenses. But that approach does not help business owners building a profitable and sustainable business.

By regularly meeting with you, and inspecting your business sales, customers, expenses, profit, and cash flow, I can help you focus your efforts where it matters most. A better understanding of your business can help clarify your business’s future and enables you to make informed decisions based on accurate data. I can help bring consistency to your business by regularly meeting with you on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis.

By way of the insight of simple reporting, I will help give direction to your business by developing an actionable plan and comparing it with actual results. In this way, you will be better equipped to benchmark your business against others in your industry. In the long run, I help you to create longevity for your business, increasing its impact, cultivating readiness for the demands of your industry and structuring your cash flow.

Moreover, I also aim to give you back the gift of time by streamlining your business systems and day to day operations, so that you can invest your time where it is most needed.

My most Frequently asked questions:

1Do you know why you are running a business and if it is profitable or scalable?
Going back to the root of why you are running a business, often proves the best way to solve problems that seem like they have no solutions. Once the reason for your business’s existence is established, it becomes easier to identify profitability problems and address the way your business can change with the times.
2Do you know who your top customers are, and why they keep coming back to you?
Getting into the customer’s mind and seeing your business through their eyes will help you make decisions that will benefit both your business and your customers in the long run. The best place to start is by identifying the customers who rely on you the most. This may also help you understand why others leave.
3Are your biggest expenses truly beneficial to your business?
Every businessperson has received advice along the lines of “You have to spend money to make money.” But this advice should be taken with a pinch of salt. Revising your expenses will help you identify costs that may not be as beneficial to your business as they seemed at first.
4Do you analyse your cash flow on a regular basis?
Keeping track of where your money goes and comes from is a vital part of running a successful business. Expenses and income should never be taken for granted. Once you begin keeping a closer eye on your cash flow, you may be surprised at the potential for growth you will discover.
5Do you have a clear and detailed budget and financial goal for your business?
Knowing where you want to go will help you make decisions that get you there. But without the finer details, that goal can often seem unobtainable. With the assistance of an expert in the field, you will be able to put a feasible goal in place and detail the actions that will help you achieve it.
6Do you prepare management accounts for your business?
Management accounts help to see how your business is performing, and comparing to your budget. This will also help to forecast to see if you are on track reach your budget and forecast results.
7How often do you meet with your accountant?
Accountants are too often seen as individuals who only need to be contacted for very specific accounting needs. This means that the full potential of the accountant is never fully utilised. Accountants can offer vital insight in areas that may not usually be apparent but could be beneficial to your business.

Why is it important for you?

Over the years, as an accountant in practice, I have seen too many business owners who were ignorant of their numbers while they attempt to focus on their business. It so happens, that we get caught up in the day to day running of our business, that we neglect stopping and looking at where we are and where we want to go.

That is why I believe it is important that you regularly look at your sales, expenses, profits, and cash flow so that you know where you are and can plan a strategy for moving forward as you build a profitable business that can thrive in good times and survive the bad times.
