At this time of year business owners could fall into two quite different camps.
– those who are comfortable with progress, business development and sales so far;
– those that are embarking on a final push in all directions so that they feel that Christmas targets are achievable
For either of these groups, the opportunity to have a financial health check at regular intervals throughout the year can give can provide visibility and confidence. With a fresh pair of eyes to check over issues such as accounts, tax planning, banking, funding requirements, efficiency and internal processes, a financial health check provides the opportunity to address any issues before they become critical.
Carrying out this exercise on a regular basis, preferably on a quarterly or at least on a bi-annual basis is the best way to gauge how the business has performed and allows business owners to adjust their plans based on current performance and targets.
If your businesses hasn’t met the targets that you set, it’s important to have the opportunity to assess which areas have not delivered and determine the next course of action to get things back on track. Re-assessing the reasoning and assumptions that surrounded the targets can be part of the exercise as this helps to understand the best direction to take and ultimately achieve the success desired.
Areas for consideration could be new products and services that can offer business opportunities for growth or it may be as simple as a re-evaluation of the current pricing or fee structure.
