Business Advisory

Business Advisory

We are a Business Advisory firm, not just Accountants, which means that we have the knowledge and expertise to advise you at every stage of your business journey.

Whether you want advice on how to grow your business, or need to raise finance, or maybe you want to retire in the next five years and need advice on exiting your business, our highly experienced Business Advisory Accountants will work alongside you and become part of your team.

Business Planning

Business Planning is crucial for both start up and established businesses.

It is the process of setting goals and defining strategies to achieve business goals – the business growth plan should include a detailed roadmap that outlines the actions required for the success of the business.

At Huddart, our Business Advisors can help you develop a strategic business plan, secure funding or investment, enabling you to adapt and respond to changing market conditions so that you achieve long term growth and sustainability.

Cash Flow Forecasting

Good cash flow forecasting methods are vital if you want to run a successful business.

Cash flow forecasting measures the cash flowing in and out of your business which enables you to see the financial health of your business on a daily basis. This is important if you are looking to buy equipment or you need a loan, for example.

As forward thinking Business Advisors, we use Xero cloud accounting software to produce a cash flow forecast analysis which shows you how your business is performing in real time, as opposed to relying on historical inaccurate data. This information is crucial to show to potential investors if you are looking to expand your business or if you require finance.

Exit Strategies

If you are a business owner looking to transition out of your business, there are several exit strategies available to you:

  • Selling the business – you can sell your business to a third party such as an investor, a competitor or a family member.
  • Family succession – you may consider passing your business down to a family member as part of your succession planning strategy.
  • Merger or acquisition – merging with another business or acquiring a new company can form part of a growth strategy where you may receive cash, stock or a combination of both as part of the deal.
  • Liquidation – as a business owner you may decide you want a quick exit. Liquidating your company involves selling off assets, paying off debts and winding down the business.

The above examples are just some of the ways you can exit your business. Our experienced Business Advisors can help you create a business exit strategy, ensuring you get the best outcome for your future goals and aspirations.
