GROWING AND MANAGING YOUR BUSINESS
GOT AN IDEA OR NEED A SOLUTION?
Talk to us because we get to know your business almost as well as you do, particularly the financial side.
Having input from someone who knows your business, is professional qualified and does not have the same emotional attachment is priceless. It provides you with another independent person to discuss plans with, or bounce ideas off.
CREATING A PLAN FROM YOUR IDEAS
We can help you translate your ideas into plans. We create action plans together with profit forecasts, break-even analysis and cashflow forecasting, and we put systems in place to monitor all of these.
We have qualified teams who can assist you with strategic planning and the implementation of these plans.
HOW DO YOU COMPARE?
How is your business performing compared with your competitors? What is the average bottom line?
Are you spending enough on advertising? Too much on rent? How do your staff costs compare?
We can help with all of this by providing you with benchmarking reports, and interpreting them with you to develop business strategies to improve your bottom line.
Growing your business is great, but can present some ‘nice to have’ problems. For example, you may not have the desire to recruit additional staff to carry out administration such as accounting, payroll, HR and marketing. CooperAitken has an experienced team who can look after this for you.
Planning ahead is vital. We can assist with interpreting and providing financial information and advice to better prepare for:
- Buying and/or merging a business
- Selling a business
- Succession planning – allowing you to step away from your business
- Success Planning
- Estate Planning – make sure your assets are dealt with in the manner you choose
