Are you ready to take the next step
Grow your business
Market is rapidly changing, new markets are presenting with new opportunities, competitors are excelling and stealing your customers by offering better products or service. You want to grow your revenue, launch new products, increase market share, enter new markets, win back your old customers but you don’t have in house expertise and tools to financially analyse and evaluate the options and opportunities, validate new strategy and/or measure its success financially.
Improve your financial performance
You want to improve your cash flow and liquidity or may be you want to improve your financing leverage or bring debt to equity ratio to a acceptable level, or may be you are concerned about your working capital situation. What ever the issue with your main stream finances, you know that unless you get it fixed, you run the risk of getting into major problems with going concern of your business.
Reduce your expenses and overheads
Your revenue is increasing and is healthy but its not reflecting in your net profits. You suspect the problem lies in overhead cost and expenses but you are struggling to bring them down to appropriate proportions because of lack of appropriate tools and expertise to confidently identify and analyse key focus areas in terms of avoidability and acceptability.
Control your business better
Things are getting messy. May be your policies and procedures need reviewing or your financial controls are not holding and you feel you are loosing control of your business.
Reduce your business risk
Businesses that do not foresee, plan and put measures in place to tackle business risks, always suffer. But how can you plan and put measures in place if you are unable to identify and quantify the impact of risks to your business operations. The bigger the stake, the more the risk control planning is needed.
To implement such initiatives successfully, you need the expertise and experience of a qualified finance professional
In house FD or CFO
A Finance Director or CFO usually undertake such kind of strategic initiatives as they have the relevant skills and experience to follow it through successfully. However a full time FD/CFO cost around £60k – £200k, which for a small business with limited needs, is not an ideal solution.
Hire external Consultants
The other option is to hire external consultants for the duration of the project. A consultant typically charge anywhere between £350 to £1000 per day and can be more expensive if you need to hire multiple consultants with different skill sets. The problem with this is that once the project is complete and consultants are gone and if you still don’t have in house expertise, you will have to hire another consultant(s) every time you need further help., which can be very costly for a small business.
Outsource to Business Advisory Firm
As hiring a full time FD/CFO or an external Consultant(s) is not the best cost effective solution for a small business, the best option is to outsource the business advisory/CFO service to a firm of Business Advisors. However as with consultants, you ideally want all the expertise from one firm for better coordination and synergy but as you know not many firms out there, have all the expertise and skills you want under one roof. Some who do are either too big to effectively serve small businesses or they are too just too expensive.
