UNDERSTAND YOUR NUMBERS
BEYOND FINANCIALS CONSULTING UNDERSTAND YOUR NUMBERS
Even the most savvy business owners don’t always understand their financial statements. They tend to rely on their bank balance to run the business and that approach fails over the long run. In addition, even the best bookkeepers and accountants are so focused on processing transactions or filing taxes that they don’t spend time helping their clients understand and IMPROVE their financial results. Understanding the current financial state of the business is integral in being able to make informed business decisions that will increase revenue, improve profits, or smooth out cash flow.
When a business owner understands what their financial metrics should be, they have targets and goals to work towards and can structure their spending around them. How healthy is your gross profit and net profit? What should your gross profit margin be? Are you able to pay yourself a reasonable salary for the work you are performing? Can you afford to hire your first employee or hire additional employees? These types of questions require insight and analysis of the results, not just spitting out reports.
