Relevant reporting as a guideline for sound management
Nowadays, more than ever, it is vital to have an insight into your business situation, and to look proactively towards the future. This can be achieved on the basis of clear and uniform reporting. In this context, use is made of these financial details, possibly linked with operational data. Business reporting is necessary for anyone wanting to keep their business on track and who is constantly looking for improvements.
Why budget? Because it's worth the effort.
- Because your 'gut feeling' alone is not enough. To manage your business successfully, you must know how your company stands at certain points in time. The better informed you are, the stronger your negotiating position with clients and suppliers.
- Because the banks require professional, substantiated reporting of current and future figures. Well-structured financial information creates goodwill and trust.
- Because clear and regular reporting can also contribute to steering your employees in the right direction.
Using an Excel tool, it is possible to map the historic situation, but more importantly, the situation as it is now and will be in the future. In the short term, and/or in the medium and long term.
The figures are discussed and interpreted; areas for optimisation are sought, as well as potential 'pitfalls'. We come up with solutions for the client.
The client is periodically (preferably monthly) 'forced' to look at activities from a strategic perspective. This dedicated approach requires an approach that is more generalised. This service starts where accounting ends.
