There is much ongoing uncertainty in the country right now and this has the potential to impact all aspects of our lives, from what we buy, to how we work and travel. Any sort of disruption to the economy, however big or small, will have a knock-on effect to business.

Business planning

Whether you are starting a new business venture or restructuring an established organisation, a comprehensive business plan is key to success. Planning for the future helps clarify your long term strategy and identifies the resources you need to keep on track.

Our business planning advice can be used for many functions. You may be considering a merger but are unsure if now is a good time, or you may wish to seek finance from banks or government grantsOur directors have experience in numerous cases of corporate finance, business acquisitions and family successions. We can deliver advice and reports to help you make a more informed decision or support your business case. 

Our business planning service includes:

Market analysis – We were founded in 1983 and throughout this time we have helped many business thrive, however when the economy has suffered we have seen businesses deteriorate. Through our extensive experience we can guide you through the storm with management accounts, profit projections and budgets to enable you to analyse exactly how you are performing and comparing with rivals in your industry. 

Business analysis – We produce financial reports to understand where your business currently sits and where it is going. We assess your progress and can assist with any upcoming challenges you face for example, correspondence with HMRC, company law or restructuring, as well as provide guidance on how to approach them.

Cash flow forecasts – Cash flow management is vital when running a business. We look at your business and see how you are managing your suppliers, the credit terms offered to customers and your overhead payments, to ensure that liquidity isn’t an issue for your business.

Grant audits

Innovation and development within your company can be greatly enhanced financially with assistance from grant schemes available from Innovate UK, Regional Growth Fund and many more.
