Accountants are often accused of just looking at history, and how last year’s numbers added up to a tax bill and a profit and loss statement.
At Starfish Accounting, we know your business is about more than just the numbers. Our aim is to understand your motivation and approach so we can advise you on the best way to achieve your goals. Why settle with reviewing difficult to understand accounts months after the end of the year. We can provide you with ongoing access to up to date information, and tailor our recommendations to your individual needs.
We are committed to looking ahead and how you can use your past performance to anticipate and improve future performance. We offer Business Growth strategies, tools and tactics to help you reach your business and personal financial goals, and then exceed them.
Many of us grow our companies organically, but is there a better way? Through our Growth Analysis programme, we can examine with you new growth possibilities including profit improvement strategies and sales process improvement.
Where are the greatest profit opportunities in your business? Are you sure?
We take Financial Review beyond looking at your historic business numbers.
With the use of a Personal Balance Sheet and Lifetime Financial Responsibility analysis, we can highlight and recommend tax and estate planning strategies to help you reach your personal and family financial goals.
How are you doing compared with others ‘like you’? We have access to one of the most comprehensive Benchmarking tools for businesses of all sizes and industries. Would you like to find out how you can compete with the best with your financial results?
Of course we can assist with the financial sections of your Business Plan, financial forecasts and what-if scenarios, but there’s more.
Learn tactics to develop and improve your new business processes and how to monitor your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
Do you discount or charge premium prices? When should you put prices up? What are the effects of price changes in your business?
We can help you predict results from varying pricing decisions. What-if scenarios and forecasting tools can help you make complex pricing decisions a lot more easily with more predictable results.
We can apply our planning tools to help you make the best decisions around remuneration and getting the most from your business. Tools include:
- Remuneration tax planner
- Incorporation tax planner
Systems Review and Documentation
As you grow your business, your systems get stretched and need to be re-engineered or replaced.
We have tools and expertise available to not only analyse and improve your current systems, but offer alternative system solutions and help put in place the documentation so that all your staff are on the same page.
