Get peace of mind around your business and it’s systems
It’s often overlooked, but this transition also requires a shift in mentality and strong change management. Advisory services require a team approach – you must be open to working in new ways and making changes.
You might not need or want or need a full-time administrative staff member but you can still benefit from strong professional advice. That’s where we ca help.
A bookkeeping consultant doesn’t want to come into your business and do what you do. We just want to help you keep things on track. We accomplish this by getting to know your business and offering advice about organisational, financial, and management strategies. We can provide services and implement solutions to help your business grow.
What exactly does this mean for you, well, this is one of my Client Profiles I have worked with:
This is a Builder Client that I started working with a few years ago
The phone call I received from his accountant really was a 111 call and he said he called 0800 help and he got me at the other end of the phone. So, when we started working together he struggled to pay Inland Revenue his GST, his suppliers, and other payments as they fell due.
He was unsure what to pay and when, what was due when and what was owed to him so,
- We setup some meetings
- Setup some office procedures for him
- Started to track his jobs in Xero
- Looked at his hourly charge out rates
- Looked at his reporting and overheads
- Appraised where he was now and where he wanted to be
- Wrapped it up with accountability and a support network
Now, 3 years later, he has just purchased his first home, married and has a wee family. Business has expanded and he has let go of the clients who were not paying him, but costing him in his overdraft fees. He is out of the red, and has signed on a massive building contract that he never thought was possible.
Along the way there have been challenges which we have all worked through and advice is always available as to what he could use inline with his accounting package and time taken to check these, liaising with his accountant and anyone else involved as and when required.
