Running a business is a full-time job, so it’s not surprising that many owners are often too busy to think about the bigger picture.
But if you want to maximise your business’s potential for success, you need a clear idea of where you are going and how to get there. That’s where our independent, expert advice can help.
We’ll help you to look at your business with fresh eyes and develop a strategy that defines your goals, your game plan and the funding, management tools and work practices that you will need achieve your objectives.
Your strategy will change over time – through the different stages of the life of your business, to deal with difficult trading conditions or to help you obtain the maximum benefit in a disposal of the business, for example.
In any case, we’ll work alongside you to regularly review your business strategy – whether this is monthly, quarterly or to look at a specific issue – so that you stay on track to achieve what you want and to measure your progress against your targets.
When you’re busy running and building a business, you juggle dozens of different demands every day. So finding the time and resources to deal with day-to-day financial matters, like bookkeeping, can represent a real extra burden.
For any business, it is essential to keep track of money coming in and out, to help you manage your cash flow and ensure that it is positive rather than negative.
So more and more businesses find that outsourcing – employing external specialists to deliver these services – provides an efficient, cost-effective solution.
At Maximus Accountants, we offer an expert, professional bookkeeping service that includes keeping records of your payments and receipts up to date and maintaining your VAT records.
Because we’ll be keeping track of your bills and invoices, you’ll be able to make payments on time, helping you to stay on good terms with suppliers, and to chase any payments that are at risk of becoming overdue.
Whether you need weekly, monthly or quarterly bookkeeping services, we’ll provide an efficient, accurate service, designed to streamline the preparation of your annual accounts.
In the competitive commercial world, having professionals experienced in corporate finance behind you is a real advantage.
We’ll start working with you by assessing your circumstances, including any existing financial arrangements, so that we can tailor our advice to your needs.
At different times in the life of your business, you might need finance to support you in starting out, making an acquisition or restructuring your financial commitments to give you greater flexibility and make it easier to attract new investment.
Whether you need to arrange a hire purchase or leasing agreement to bring in new assets, or need to bring in investment to make sure your business continues to thrive after you retire, we can help.
We have long-standing business relationships with a range of providers and will source the right finance options for you, ranging from banks to business angels and venture capitalists to government grants.
We can help you to present your proposal for funding in the most effective way, with all the relevant information to hand, and negotiate on your behalf to help you achieve the finance you need on the best available terms.
