Why financial analysis matters for your small to medium sized business (SME).

Whether you’re just starting a business, growing a business or are ready to move on, having a clear understanding of your financial options is essential at every stage of your business life.

A detailed financial needs analysis provides the right information to develop and implement strategies best suited to your current business position.

Improve the performance of your business

Strong profits are essential to the performance of a business. If your business is floundering – or if your focus is on increasing business growth – it’s important to have a clear understanding of your financial performance.

Where are things not working?

Are there opportunities for improvement or growth?

A financial analyst takes an independent look at the bigger picture to identify issues that may exist within your business – and what you can do to remedy them – as well as suggesting possible opportunities for growth and improvement.

Manage business risk

Every business faces risks. They can arise internally (poor cashflow management, personnel issues, lack of planning and more) or externally (local and global economic influences, downturn in consumer confidence, natural disasters and more)

It’s crucial to understand what risks your business may face in order to effectively deal with them should they arise. Your financial analyst will examine a range of risk factors for your business and devise the best strategies to minimise your exposure to them.

Life beyond your business

At some point you will need to consider options to exit your business. You may wish to retire, or simply sell up and move on to new things. Having an exit strategy in place ensures you begin the next phase of your life from the best possible position.

Your financial analyst can help you develop exit strategies to sell your business, leave it to family, transfer it to existing partners, or explore other options based on your needs.

No matter what stage your business has reached, it makes sense to understand all your financial risks and opportunities in order to achieve the best results for your effort.
