Using our Business Advisory Service to improve your business

As a business owner or entrepreneur, you may be familiar with the term ‘business advisory’ but it’s not always clear what it means – or how it can benefit your business. At its core, business advisory involves providing expert advice and insights to help you make informed decisions about your company’s future. At CBHC, our team of accountants and business advisors are dedicated to providing this kind of value to our clients.

Performance metrics

One of the key components of business advisory is reporting on performance. As accountants, we have access to your financial records and we can provide detailed insights into how your business is performing. This includes everything from analysing revenue and expenses, to identifying areas where you can improve efficiency and profitability. By looking at historical data and trends, we can help you make strategic decisions about the future direction of your business.

Future planning

However, business advisory is about more than just looking back at past performance. It’s also about helping you plan for the future. At CBHC, we work closely with our clients to develop strategic plans that take into account both short-term and long-term goals. This might involve analysing market trends, identifying potential risks and exploring new growth opportunities. By taking a holistic view of your business, we can help you make informed decisions that will position you for long-term success.

Your future leadership

Another important aspect of business advisory is succession planning. If you’re like most business owners & directors, you’ve invested a lot of time and effort into building your company. But what happens when it’s time to pass the reins over to someone else? This could be through an MBO, a Trade Sale or an EOT (Employee Ownership Trust). Succession planning is all about preparing for that transition, whether it’s through selling your business or passing it on to family members or employees. At CBHC, we can help you develop a comprehensive succession plan that takes into account your personal and financial goals, as well as the needs of your business.

Market development

It’s worth noting that finance and accounting tie into most, if not all, business decisions. Whether you’re considering a major investment, exploring new markets, or planning for growth, you need to have a solid understanding of your financial position and the potential risks and rewards involved. By working with a team of experienced accountants and business advisors, you can ensure that you have the insights and expertise you need to make informed decisions about the future of your business.
