The undeniable path to enduring SME relationships for Accountants and Advisers is understanding the SME client’s business; past, present and future. What action can you take to place yourself at the forefront of business planning opportunities and drive a deeper relationship? The answer rests in the financial statements and using this information as your platform to ask powerful questions, lift the bonnet on the business, and create a strong impression as a trusted adviser. It is about piercing the SME psyche to have them excited about their numbers and reaching out for professional help in goal setting and forward planning.

The plan is to demonstrate how to cut through the clutter and strip away the mystery of reading and interpreting financial statements. We introduce concepts and processes that act as bell ringers for business owners and create a desire to act on optimising their cash flow, increasing profitability, funding growth aspirations and building the enterprise value

We focus on creating a business scorecard and narrowing it down to the metrics that matter and explore the power of benchmarking and what you can do to implement.
