Business & Personal Consulting – “Analysis and Follow Up”
  • Business Plans/Forecasts/Profitability Analysis

For start-up as well as existing businesses utilizing one, three, or five year plans with follow-up systems comparing actual results. This lends itself to better profitability analysis and allows businesses to function according to an established plan as opposed to things happening by accident. Budgets and forecasts can be used not only for internal business situations but also for external financing, buy/sell situations which require forecasts and payback calculations, as well as in start-up businesses where accurate budgets and forecasts are crucial in the first year of a new business.

  • Overhead Analysis

An important area for all businesses, overhead analysis and control can be the difference between profit and loss, and can significantly affect your gross profit percentage. A lower gross profit percentage will increase your break-even points. Our office will analyze not only your fixed overhead but also the variable portion of overhead especially in manufacturing and construction arenas. Overhead analysis greatly influences the results of your product or service cost system as well as your ability to price your service or products profitably.

  • Cost Reduction Programs

Usually go hand-in-hand with overhead analysis to lower overall costs and identify problem areas. This can be done on a product by product basis or an overall company basis. Identification of cost problem areas and controlling future cost outlays is crucial in any re-organization or restructuring plan as well. The entire circle of events from problem identification to cost reduction will produce better future results in any restructuring plan.

  • Debt Management

Is important in any organization. Interest expense and other debt service costs can eat away at your bottom line. Use of credit cards, high interest credit lines and short-term financing are only quick fixes and should be streamlined as soon as possible to utilize long-term rates and payment plans to enhance cash flow. Remember, while gross profit percentages and operating profits may be excellent, you still may not have cash flow due to debt service requirements. This can leave your business without the ability to re-invest its profits back into the company and forever hold your business hostage to the financing industry. Turn those credit cards and lines of credit into long-term debt as soon as possible!

  • Business Management

Our expertise allows us to assist companies in reviewing their internal reporting and paper flow systems which sometimes falter either because of age, technology, or employee turnover. This analysis gives rise to redevelopment of new systems that could simplify reporting in your company and allow management to receive better information on a more timely basis. Whether you are a small construction company, a medium size manufacturing company or a small service/merchandising business, our expertise can enhance the reporting systems and the response time to business problems, subsequently increasing profits and reduce costs. Early, timely information eliminates emergency management and brings to light problem situations much sooner.
