Forecast Your Cashflow
We will have an initial meeting with you, where we look in depth at your last 12 months accounts, including the profit & loss and cashflow statement. We can then talk about what you think might happen over the next 12 months and forecast some examples.
If there is something major in the pipeline that may or may not happen (a new contract for example) we can look at both scenario’s and see what would happen in either one. The same can be done with something you may be thinking of; opening a new store, taking on more staff or taking out a business loan.
We will then work with you regularly to keep in top of what is actually happening in the business, alerting you if there are any major issues. We will give you monthly reports to show what is happening, and there is also an option of an in person review once a quarter.
