Who is it for?

I designed our Finance Sidekick service with small yet mighty businesses in mind. So, if you've got big plans for the future you have come to the right place.

There's more to accounts than just looking back once a year. Successful businesses are those where the numbers are regularly viewed and compared against goals. What gets measured gets done and all that jazz.

Know where you are now and where you want to take your fabulous business but struggling to connect the dots? We can help answer those age-old questions—"Where did all the money go" and "How do I make more of it"! and give you better insight on your spending, revenue, and much more.

You'll get the most out of Finance Sidekick if you're consistently having £5k-minimum months and are actively moving to the next level, whatever that might look like for you.

Giving you not only peace of mind but the financial freedom to achieve those dream goals.

So, I know when you started your business you probably weren't "Yay! Can't wait to get to get stuck in to cashflows, tax and budgets". However, getting to grips with your cashflow and forecasting enables you to make those all-important decisions such as launching a new service line, bringing on a second pair of hands or even leasing space for your growing business.

Defining what success means to you

Success means different things to different people, so we'll tailor the key metrics we focus on to match what you want to achieve with your business.

We can help you ensure all your revenue streams are making the level of profit you need to make those moves. Want to grow the business slowly and steadily, bringing on staff and investing in training? We can guide you on the business strategy side ensuring you know the best time to invest in people, premises and much more.

Empowering you to make business decisions confidently

We'll work with you to ensure that your business is in the best financial health and running as profitably as possible. Providing easy to understand cashflow forecasting that covers the full financial year so you can see there aren't any nasty surprises in the distance.

As part of the forecasting, we will deep dive into your revenue streams, providing you with insights on savings you could make, which service lines are the most profitable and how to plan for increased taxation, seasonality and other market trends.

Whilst profit is important and the sign of a strong business, it's also important to have cash in the bank to help you reach those bigger goals so we'll take a look at how much cash you have in the bank and create an easy to follow plan to get you to the figure you need to smash those goals you have for your business.

This data really helps you to see the bigger picture when it comes to your business and gives you peace of mind that you are headed in the right direction.
