HOW WE DO IT

Regular meetings with business owner (and key staff as required) to analyse periodic performance and set the goals and tasks for the next period:

  • Fortnightly – for the larger business that requires high levels of support
  • Monthly – recommended for most sized businesses.
  • Quarterly – for smaller businesses or for ongoing maintenance after initial period of monthly meetings

Utilise your existing accounting software wherever possible

Utilise specialised software which feeds from your existing accounting software to provide additional analysis tools and reporting clarity

We are not the “doers”. We don’t replace your bookkeeper or accountant. Ie. We won’t be completing reconciliations or take over the internal or external accounting functions. We provide the guidance, instruction, information and support for you and your staff to take action in your business.
