Financial Management

Profit Improvement:

 

Timely & Accurate management prepared financials

 

Financial Management – It’s critical that you have current, accurate and appropriately detailed management financials for review by your management team on at minimum, a monthly basis. You need to understand and use these management prepared financial statements to manage and grow your business. We can help prepare your internal financial statements for use by your management team. Your year end accountant will also benefit by having to make fewer adjustments at year end.

 

Inventory and other balance sheet reconciliations

 

Reconciliation is the process of comparing information that exists in two systems, analyzing differences and making corrections so that the information is accurate, complete and consistent in both systems. Balance sheet accounts should be reconciled on a periodic and timely basis to verify that all items were correctly posted to the account. Without performing reconciliations, inaccurate recording of transactions may occur that would result in incorrect reporting and could impact resources. If you are in the business of inventory, you need to ensure that the balance sheet and the stock ledger are in balance and provide a reasonable estimation of inventory on hand.

 

Forecasting and Planning

 

Adequate financial planning is a key element in the success of your business and not just for your NEW businesses. Indeed, planning and forecasting are tools often ignored by businesses already established but they are important keys to survival and growth providing the blueprint to financial viability and stability by planning, evaluating and controlling the business. Like a road map, the plan will provide the WHAT in terms of your business goals with both short term and long term financial forecasting and budgeting establishing the business strategy or the HOW to your goals. We can help you develop a realistic, simple and flexible business plan.

 

It is important to know how your business has performed in the past and compare your current results to past performance. It is even more important to know how your business should perform going forward and any variance between actual performance and forecasted performance.
