An effective and value-adding finance department – led by a dynamic Finance Director – is a powerful competitive advantage in today’s business world.
Is your finance department/ director providing you with a competitive advantage; giving you an edge over our competitors? Or if you don’t have a finance department/ director, would you like to gain such this edge?
If you haven’t already got a finance department/ director, our outsource solution will help you to develop your business and grow your profits through strategic accounting, while also taking care of your financial matters, both operational and compliance issues.
If you do have an existing department/director, in a great many cases our solution can add significantly more value to your business while invariably costing you less.
We know that replacing an internal department with an external solution is a major business decision – but a decision worth making? We can work with you to plan and implement this change, phasing out staffing within an agreed timescale, without any disruption to business services.
How does the solution work? Each solution is tailor-made, designed to suit your exact business requirements, but in essence all of our solutions work in three levels…
In essence, the first level means that you will never have to worry about financial administration or management again.
All you have to do is collect your financial documents – and then send these to us (or we’ll send a courier to collect) every day, week or month. We’ll do the rest from our end.
We will do all of your bookkeeping and record keeping, manage your payroll, complete your VAT returns and such like. We can make supplier and other payments or produce a list of supplier/ other payments due for you to pay your end. We can also produce your invoices and provide credit control services. Equally we can administer purchase/ sale order procedures and provide the necessary liaison between relevant departments/staff. We can help you with any other financial aspects should you like us to.
We will produce financial reports in terms of sales/ purchases etc on a daily, weekly or month basis – sent to the relevant individual/ department in an agreed format.
Where necessary, we can provide a bespoke telephone line for your company (your finance department number) for use by suppliers and staff. You will have a single dedicated contact for operational, compliance and payroll issues – who will be available throughout the day to respond to queries and provide information.
As part of the solution, we will prepare your year-end statutory accounts and tax returns. We will also create a bespoke tax plan for you, which means that we will closely monitor the director(s) remuneration to ensure the most optimal method of profit extraction is followed. The aim here is to maximise your business and personal wealth – allowing you to keep more of what you make.
You will have your own dedicated Finance Director, who will manage your finance department but more importantly be available to provide expert analysis and invaluable input into your business.
You will meet with your Finance Director for regular business growth consultations, which are designed to be at Board level – giving you all the benefits of a Finance Director, just at a fraction of the price.
These sessions will focus mainly on developing your business, working on a number of areas in which to make improvements, overcome problems and exploit opportunities. Just some of the topics covered might be strategies relating to: your product range/ services, your client base, your team, your costs, your pricing, your volume of sales, new business opportunities, your 80/20, marketing activities, and so on.
During the consultations, your Finance Director and you will also review developments and changes in the business. Each meeting will be assisted by a management accounts report, including bespoke reports such as bench-marking, key performance indicators and forecasting.
The first stage once you start working with your Finance Director is to hold a half- or full-day company alignment session, in which we map out the company’s short-, medium- and long-term goals and plot the course from here to achieving these goals.
Of course, your Director and their team will always be available for ad hoc meetings, telephone calls or e-mails, should you ever need to discuss a matter with them, however big or small.
