Tackling the biggest challenges for business owners in Warrington and across Cheshire
In our experience as business accountants, the 7 biggest challenges for business owners are:
Information overload and difficult to get the insights that matter
Problems understanding the accounts/numbers
Cashflow is a constant battle, as is access to the right funding at the right price
Unreliable financial insights
Failing to break down the big goals into manageable steps
No clear planning
Lack of expert support
It's too tempting for business owners to simply check the bank balance and log out. But what if you’re missing amazing growth opportunities because you haven’t kept an eye on the incomings and outgoings? Or perhaps there’s an upcoming pitfall which you haven’t spotted? Maybe you could make your cash flow that bit smoother if you change your payment terms? What impact would it make to put your prices up? Plus the all important question.. what’s the tax bill going to look like at the end of this year?
