Audit

Not just! a set of accounts and a signature on the audit report,Audit Services can recommend a truly comprehensive insight into the successful running of a business.

Conducted with genuine commitment to quality service as well as legal and financial reporting standards, auditing dovetails neatly with virtually every business service we provide.

Whether this involves Statutory Audits or Internal Audits, which are often required by larger organisations, or Voluntary Audits, to provide assurances to reassure yourself that the necessary financial disciplines are in place, the whole process of auditing has several other major benefits, including:

- Resolving Problems - by analysing, for example, gross and net profit margins, debt collection, credit control procedures, liquidity ratios, stock ratios etc. we are able to help you maximise profits.

- Providing Business Intelligence – gained by an in-depth knowledge of all key areas of your business, such as sales order processing, invoicing procedures and accounting systems, and based upon real, practical knowledge of your data.

- Improved Business Potential – through analytical review, reports and recommendations.

- Comparative Reviews – of your business within the marketplace and within the industry or sector in which you are operating.

All of which leads, of course to building an overall business strategy, adding up, we believe, to added value where it matters.

Business Planning

First hand strategic business advice is delivered by a professional s whose role is to understand your business, your marketplace, your goals and help you identify the best route to realising your full commercial potential. Business strategy, business planning – key phrases in starting, growing and maintaining a successful business. Through, for example:

- Business Plans – where we will help you devise the right plan to match your specific needs, whether for a new business or for further investment in an existing one. Essential to clarifying objectives, usually vital to securing funding from lending institutions, we will work with you to create a "living" plan that adapts to meet changing circumstances and takes advantage of emerging opportunities.

- Business Finance – do you need to borrow, and when? Should it be a loan or an overdraft, or both? What about hire purchase to buy machinery or perhaps equipment is best leased?

We have the answers because we have the experience – and all the right contacts in all the right places.

- Cash Flow – because, as every businessman knows, Cash is King. We can help you stay in control with regular cash flow forecasts.
