CASH FLOW PROJECTION

Cash flow is crucial to the operation of any business and it is important to plan ahead in this regard. The preparation of a cash flow forecast will allow you to plan ahead in advance for any periods where cash flow will be in deficit or surplus. If you are equipped with the information in advance of requiring finance, things should run more smoothly. If you find you currently require finance, a cash flow projection should strengthen your case for obtaining finance, as it will show your ability to service the proposed debt while also showing financial management and control.

BUSINESS PLANS

Whether you are a new business starting out, trying to obtain finance, or an existing business looking to obtain finance to expand, a business plan can be a true asset to have. We can assist you in compiling a business plan. You can gain a great deal from the process of thinking critically about your business and can gain insight into your market and get a deeper understanding of the details of running your own business. We will work with you to prepare the financial forecasts for inclusion in the plan and can compile the final product using information you have supplied after our discussions. A business plan will generally be a pre-requisite to obtaining finance for a new business starting out. It is important to remember that a business plan should not be a document that is prepared on a one off basis, and we encourage you to amend your business plan regularly in the future as your business grows, changes, finds new opportunities and faces new challenges.

BUSINESS BUDGETS

Business budgets are an important part of the planning process as they will forecast the profitability of a business and can help in identifying loss making activities early on and where money is being unnecessarily spent. In good times when there is lots of income it is often easy for businesses to ignore this kind of expenditure, but when things are tighter it becomes more crucial to identify early on where the business can be run more financially efficient. In times of expansion it is also particularly important to scrutinise the budget to be aware of what additional costs will be incurred to carry out additional activities. Business budgets can also assist in identifying break even points of production and the effect on profits from increases and decreases in sales.

Although we do not arrange loans personally, we can arrange a time for you to meet one of our business affiliates to ensure that you are given the best advice possible to meet this aspect of your financing needs from a trusted advisor.
