Too many small business owners work too hard, for too many hours for far too little return.

As Michael Gerber points out in his book, 'The E Myth - Why Most Businesses Don’t Work and What To Do About It', "Most people work IN their business. The secret is NOT to work in it; it's to work ON it so that you don't have to work IN it"

With over 40 years experience, we are not your 'average' accounting firm that just 'keeps the score'. Far from it. Rather than just have an accountant, our business clients enjoy a 'business coach' relationship. We work ON your business to develop a business independent of you.

We develop strategies, systems and processes to ensure your marketing generates a better return and repeat business. We use tools and techniques to increase sales, productivity and make your financials more meaningful. When you work with us you have a true business advisor committed to your results.

We combine our knowledge of your business with our expertise and consulting tools to help you achieve more than you imagined possible.

Knowledge is power. If you know how your business is performing, you can make informed decisions and have the power to control your results. We can help identify emerging issues so that a minor problem never becomes a major crisis. No matter what size your business is, success comes down to strategically thinking about the future.

We use tools such as 'business benchmarking' to systematically measure your operating performance over time and then compare the results against similar businesses. It helps identify key strengths and weaknesses which in turn allows us to develop strategies to improve the operating performance of the business. Statistics, ratios and Key Performance Indicators (KPI'S) that focus on key areas of your business are also monitored and we compare them to prior periods and available industry data.

Growing a business can be even more challenging than the initial start up phase. You might find you need to employ staff, relocate to larger premises, take on additional product lines, begin to manufacture your own products or possibly acquire another business. Each of these scenarios can have significant cash flow, compliance, legal and tax implications.

Whatever your growth plans entail we can collaborate with you to help develop a detailed business plan and then assist with implementation. In some circumstances this can require additional specialist expertise and we can call on our network of alliance partners from a range of disciplines including marketing, information technology (IT) and legal.

As a business owner you need an accountant who does more than just 'keep the score'. For this reason we don’t just look at what happened in the past, we look at what could happen in the future and aim to help you build a more robust and profitable business. We focus on the four ways to grow your business which are:

  • Increase the number of customers (of the type you want)
  • Increase the number of times customers come back
  • Increase the average value of each sale
  • Increase the effectiveness of each process in the business

One of the most important aspects of managing a growing business is to set realistic revenue targets and financial goals. These are usually based on a sound understanding of current, historical and projected financials.

We will work with you to set key financial milestones and performance indicators that measure the progress of your growth plan. We are not your average accountant and understand what 'growing pains' really mean. We assist clients in the growth phase of their business life cycle by providing innovative, practical solutions tailored to their specific needs. We are passionate about small business and the success of our clients.
