ADVANCED BUSINESS SERVICES FROM PRACTICAL ACCOUNTANTS

Who advise, mentor and encourage you to achieve your dreams

The dream of creating a successful, profitable business to support their lifestyle is the goal of many entrepreneurs. However, those dreams can be frustrated, not because the business is flawed, but because you reach a level of financial expertise that’s beyond your experience. It’s just not your strength.

That’s where Grampian Accounting can step in and act as your ‘virtual’ Finance Director: accountants who are ‘switched on’ and can advise, mentor and encourage you in all matters financial; helping you focus on working ‘on’ your business rather than working ‘in’ it; always available to offer opinions drawn from years of experience and helping you break through to new levels – perhaps even beyond your dreams – and at considerably less cost than employing your own full-time FD!

Our business services include:

Business strategy, planning and forecasts

Need a business plan? Cash flow forecast? Presentation for the bank? No problem. Want to work through some ‘What if’ scenarios, but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry. We’ll help you set the targets for your business – then keep you on track, month after month.

Management information

Regular management information is the life-blood of any successful business. After all, you can’t manage what you can’t measure! We work closely with you to prepare your monthly or quarterly management accounts so you always have reliable and accurate information at your fingertips. We’ll review the accounts and do a ‘sense-check’ on where you are now and where you are likely to be at the year end, so we – and you – can make plans accordingly. It’s this aspect of forward planning that can substantially impact your profitability and your liability to tax at the year end.

Business development and consultancy

Need help with credit control, stock control, budgeting or financial reporting systems? Or have a problem with gross margins, cost control or stock valuation? We’ll put you back in control of your business with our consultancy service.

HM Revenue & Customs Investigations

A tax investigation by HM Revenue & Customs can be a stressful and worrying experience for any business owner. If you are about to be the subject of an investigation, we can provide expert help and support. What’s more, all our clients have the option to be covered by insurance against fees incurred in HMRC investigations, so you won’t be faced with a nasty bill.

Accounting software training

As well as recommending appropriate accounting software packages to suit your business, we also provide training for you and your staff, so you can quickly grasp the essentials and provide regular management information that will ultimately reduce our charges for producing your annual accounts.
