How Finance Function Works Hand-in-Hand with Business Advisory

7 Mar

At Dua & Co, our team of accountants in Watford and London expertly combine finance function services with big-picture business advisory to maximise the potential of both your business and your personal wealth. We carry out your daily record-keeping and ensure that your business is fully compliant, and we also help you strategise for the long-term health of your company.

We believe that the unique coupling of finance function and business advisory is incredibly effective and valuable for business owners, and we’ve determined four key areas that demonstrate the power of this union. Read on to discover how the pairing of finance function and business advisory can transform your business and set you on the path to financial and professional success.

1. Cashflow Forecasting

Accurate cashflow forecasting is essential for business growth, and our Finance Function department expertly carries out cashflow analysis to help you assess your progress and understand what the future may hold for your business. Meanwhile, our business advisors are able to use these forecasts to project any potential setbacks and prepare your business. They think about what cashflow means for your business and strategise accordingly.

2. Profitability and Management Accounts

Our Finance Function department’s in-depth knowledge of your company’s bookkeeping allows us to apply management accounting techniques, then our business advisors can help you translate these numbers into real-world strategies.  We help you analyse areas such as income streams, marketing success, budgeting and resource allocation to help you make decisions that boost profitability and faster business growth.

3. Tax reduction and efficiency

We work to compliantly minimise your tax liability and increase your tax efficiency. Our understanding of your business’s finance function informs how our tax specialists develop tailored solutions for you, while our business advisory experts walk you through the long-term implications of your taxes and planning for future tax payments without disrupting business cashflow requirements.

4. Talent

By examining your business from the perspective of both Finance Function specialists and business advisors, we help you determine the type of talent which will drive your business’s profits and bolster its longevity. We recognise that one of the best ways to build your business is by investing in people, and we can advise you on how to nurture the talent within your company through financial incentives and streamlined processes. Furthermore, we can work with you to develop a business structure that will fully utilise the skills of your employees. Your employees are the heart of your business, and we help you optimise your business financially to ensure that your talent functions at the highest level.

Dua & Co’s advisors and accountants know that both attention to detail and a wider perspective are necessary for sustainable business success. That’s why we’ve married meticulous finance function with long-term business advisory. As a business owner, you don’t have time to keep track of all the numerical intricacies of your company yourself, and you also can’t spend each day entirely focused on the future vision of your business. You need to concentrate on the present, implementing the strategies that will encourage growth in the here and now – and with Dua & Co on your side, you can do just that. We manage the financial details and big-picture strategies that contribute to your success, while you run your business as only you can.
