Accounting for your Future....

In all business, planning business going forward is the key to success and achieving goals.

There are some easy steps to take to make sure that business can achieve their goals and check their financial health and if you would like us to help then please make sure you as us.

Some things to think about when starting your business are:

  • Have a plan, even if it is written down manually.
  • Create a goal - have something to aim for and focus on
  • Get clarity on what you provide as a service or product
  • Ask for help if you need to get your goals in order 
  • Regularly check your progress - if you are a visual person, create a chart to follow
  • Always pay your tax - the IRD will not go easy on you even in your first year
  • We like the idea of having a business "buddy" (for the want of a better word) to catch up with every month to talk about the business
  • Remember that doing your trade well does not mean you can run a business well - ask for help
  • Do you have enough money to start up - you will need working capital so plan carefully
  • If in doubt, ask.... we have a vast range of smart people in our network we can call on for help if needed.

Some things to think about when buying a business are:

  • Have a plan, even if it is written down manually.
  • Create a goal - have something to aim for and focus on
  • Check the "real profit" to make sure that all is correct - get a second opinion if needed

Here is an idea of what we will do for you….
