Driving your business or farm’s performance
Knowing the right drivers can get your business performing at the right level, keeping up with fast-paced changes and driving growth.
Many business owners know they need extra advice to expand or benefit from having a mechanism in place to freely discuss ideas and establish a plan to realise those ideas.
This is where financial business advice also comes into play. As accountants, we know to successfully grow, owners and managers of small and medium businesses need sound financial advice (not just focusing purely on their tax result).
“We understand the numbers and provide business advice as a way to bridge the gap,” says Daniel Bartkowski. “Advising on top of tax gets us working closely with our clients to help build the value of their businesses.”
A practical example is Carrick Aland’s monthly or quarterly meetings with owners to discuss all the operating cogs of their business.
“We work through any troubles they’re facing in their business operations, what marketing needs to occur, having the right workforce level to handle the work marketing generates, staff issues, software, systems and budgets,” says Daniel.
“We all then walk away with a list of tasks and who’s responsible with due dates that keep the business moving forward. We also report on performance compared to the budget.”
“By staying close to the numbers, we can model the financial impact of proposed changes in the business and establish metrics against which targets can be set and results measured. This helps with accountability as the numbers don’t lie.”
If your farm or business is growing and could use deeper input, Carrick Aland’s CAConnect services provide the accountability and competitive advantage your business needs. Read more at carrickaland.com.au/caconnect.
