Business Advisory Services

Moving your business forward

With the lock-down restrictions in Melbourne about to ease, is now the time to push your business forward and take business risks, or should you bunker down and play it safe? 

While it may be business as usual for some, our economy in the longer term is anyone’s guess. So if you run your own business, you are most likely experiencing a great deal of uncertainty; all because we have seen the economy move up, down and sideways.

So what does tomorrow look like? You might even be asking yourself what your business will look like in 6 or 12 months, or if your business will be in a good position when you retire in 5 or 10 years? 

Perhaps your business has taken a substantial hit, so you’ve put a plan in place, but you continue to ask yourself if your plan is solid enough? Have you been given the right advice? Should you get a second opinion?

Do I need a business advisor?

To help you make an informed decision about taking on a business advisor, we have put together some common business challenges faced by business owners just like you; hardworking, focused people, all looking to improve their business and better themselves. If you find yourself expereincing a similar scenario, we can help.

What is a business advisor?

If you’re still not quite sure what a business advisor is or does, watch our short client scenario example video (above), or read our short blog here.

What should I expect from my current accountant?

If your current accountant is just preparing historical financial statements and lodging your income tax return – you might be looking to face some very difficult times ahead.

We think a great accountant should be across the day-to-day operations of your business, casting a critical eye over the business to provide insight and advice about how your business is traveling. 

In fact, your accountant should regularly be working with you, to not only improve things now, but over the next 12-months and even 5-years time. 

Accountant service questionnaire

How does your current accountant stack up? If you don’t tick-off at least 2 boxes, we suggest you move your business elsewhere before you face some unexpected challenges.

Does your current accountant:

  1. Catch up with your regularly to find out how business is going?
  2. Work with you to plan and set goals, both short and longer term?
  3. Provide regular updates about new legislation and government incentives/payments?
  4. Run through your business from top to bottom to identify potential risks or opportunities?
  5. Regulary talk to you about your cash flow and your individual life goals?
