Increase your profit

You Create.
We Maximise Your Profit.

"Profit is what happens when you do everything else right"

Our superstar FDs & CFOs can work part-time – remotely or at your premises – to help you increase cash, profit, and valuation, freeing you from the burden of day-to-day operations.

Cash flow is just one of the 12 building blocks of a world class finance function.

We’ll help you drive profit through close analysis of the underlying numbers. Here are some pointers for starters:
  1. Start with your WHY

    What is your reason for being in business beyond making a profit? This will fire the engine and ultimately ensure you generate greater profits.
  2. Pricing

    Increase (or potentially decrease) your pricing. Small changes can make big differences: on average, a 1% price increase yields an 11% increase in profit.
  3. Reducing costs

    Reduce costs and implement a company-wide expense controls programme.
  4. Improving payment collection

    Improve and automate payment collection.
  5. Measurement/KPIs

    What you measure, moves. Deep dive into trends, build intelligent KPIs and focus on what really matters.
  6. Supplier management

    Manage suppliers tightly and look for bulk-buying opportunities, consolidation of costs and discounts.
  7. Lending facilities

    Review lending facilities with the bank. A well-managed finance function will engender trust from the bank and give you greater leverage for improved facilities.
  8. Grants

    Investigate all possible opportunities for grant funding.
  9. R&D tax credits

    Explore options for R&D tax credits.
  10. Optimisation

    Optimise all working parts of your finance function – ‘The 12 Boxes’ – to improve efficiency and productivity and increase your output.
  11. Improved proposition

    Tighten up your value proposition to increase your conversion rate; reduce the cost of new customer acquisition.
  12. Customer retention

    Customer retention is just as important (if not more so) than new customer acquisition. Focus on achieving a healthy balance between the two.
  13. Outsourcing

    Investigate opportunities for outsourcing for reduced costs, increased flexibility and improved access to skills.

It’s not just about profit…
