Increase profits by increasing your financial knowledge

You get your accountant to do the books and the tax return each year, right? With some relatively simple techniques, you could be the one telling him/her how you’ve improved the profitability of the business. It’s not only empowering to educate yourself financially, it’s part of your responsibility as a business owner.

Work financial targets, measuring and adjustments into a regular schedule

The best way to approach financial analysis is to be methodical and consistent. Rather than wait until tax time, BAS time, reporting time or auditing time – make your own time where you address finances so they are always ready for documentation and presentation.

The better your financial records and documentation the more attractive your business is to a potential buyer.

It’s the one area that business owners often neglect when selling a business. They assume  the strength of the business will speak for itself. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

A prospective buyer will look at your financials first and foremost and the less work they have to do to understand the exact financial position of your business the more likely they will be to buy.
