Bates Weston’s business advisory service, BW Insight delivers real time advice based on real time information. Advice that you can act on right away to give you firm financial control, take decisions confidently and drive business improvements.
Specifically, when we can see your digital business records, we can work with you to manage cashflow, evaluate finance options, look at funding opportunities, provide forecasts and analyse budgets. We can work together to improve the performance of your business.
We tailor our service to your business, tracking the data we believe will help you the most, and providing you with analysis and insight as often as you ask for it.
You can find more information on BW Insight Business Advisory Service here, or call and talk it over with Stuart Hulland or Kay Brookes. No obligation, just a friendly chat to see how we may be able to help.
We are curious and straight talking, and we are an SME too. We understand the problems businesses face, and we’ve helped many to overcome them and go on to thrive and grow. We can use that experience and insight to help your business. But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what one client Adrian Radford, Managing Director of Key Survival Equipment, has to say about our advisory service:
“Having Bates Weston working alongside us, gives us peace of mind. We know our financial position in real time, we forecast our cashflow position and we can see how our business is performing, taking action to address potential problems before they arise or making the most of new market opportunities with a clear understanding of the likely financial impact.
Here’s an example. Our industry is highly volatile. We have severe peaks and troughs in revenue. Trying to forecast cashflow with a clunky spreadsheet was a problem. Bates Weston suggested integrated cashflow forecasting, and our cashflow became far easier to manage.
We embrace technology, realising the time it can save us as a business. But we also get peace of mind, knowing our exact financial position and that Bates Weston are seeing it too. We talk regularly, and if an anomaly is spotted, they can fix it straight away.”
All accountants, worth their salt, can produce accounts and tax returns based on your historic data, but if you are keen to look forward, get a grip on your finances and make real improvements to your business, you need one that looks ahead. Like driving, the best drivers keep their eyes on the road ahead, with an occasional look in the rear view mirror.
