Strong focused financial management is essential to any business that wants to remain successful. Good financial management enables you to keep a close eye on day to day running costs of the business, including operational and sales and marketing costs. It will tell you on a week to week basis whether you are  breaking even, making a profit, what your present and future cash flow will look like, how to set, monitor and manage budgets, staffing and whether you are complying with within a legal framework.

Key areas to keep an eye on and manage are:

1. Sales turnover
2. ProfitabilityFifty pounds
3. Cashflow
4. Product & service pricing
5. Operational performance
6. Overhead
7. Managing budgets
8. Managing customers
9. Discounting
10. Managing suppliers
11. Investment planning
12. Tax planning

  Financial Issues:

Financial management becomes an issue when you don’t know your breakeven point, how profitable you really are or how well your cashflow is going to perform over the next 3 to 6 months.  Unless you can determine how well your business is running on a daily/weekly/monthly you are in danger of overly discounting your product & services to your customers (thereby losing money) , not be able to manage budgets because you don’t know the true cost of delivering your product or service.

“ We used the report to help us pinpoint where we were going wrong and identify where we could make improvements. The results were nothing short of enlightening as we were able to identify hidden weaknesses we didn’t know we had. These were quickly dealt with and the business has gone from strength to strength. I would highly recommend it. ”
