Entity Selection

There are many different possible entity structures. Choosing the right entity structure in the beginning can help solve unforeseen future problems.

Succession planning, tax minimisation, asset protection, retirement, and potential sale of the business are examples of the points that need to be considered when beginning a business.

If you’re already in business we will assess your current entity selection and advise on any action, if any, is required to better suit your needs.

We will discuss your personal situation and advise on the best entity structure for your needs.


A good budget is a necessity in a good business plan. It is one of the best business tools we have, allowing us to set financial targets and measure our performance.

The techniques we utilize in the formation of financial projections will allow you to consider future scenarios and give you goals to strive for in your business.

In addition to goal setting value, budgets will often improve your chances of acquiring funding as financers often require forecasts as a prerequisite for funding approval. Cash flow forecasting is a vital part of ensuring your business will always have the cash it needs, because profits don’t pay bills – cash does.

There are many types of budgets and we can help you design the right budget for your needs and requirements. Let us show you how a budget and a cash-flow forecast are able to provide feedback to allow you to prepare for the future of your business.

Cash-flow Forecasting

Have you ever wondered if you are holding too much inventory? Is this the right time to expand your business? Are you going to have enough cash to pay all expenses every month?

Survival in today’s business climate requires you to spend more time working on your business rather than in the business.

We can provide you with accurate, timely and informative cash flow forecasting reports – allowing you to:

  • Realize and understand when cash is available
  • Plan and prepare for expansion, stock control, and taxes
  • Analyse and anticipate key expenses

Armed with this information, we’ll work with you to develop action strategies to improve your bottom line.
