Help You Grow

Everything you need to develop and expand your business



Tax Planning

As the famous Mr Kerry Packer once said, "Any one who pays too much tax needs his head read".

We take your tax obligations seriously and always aim to get you the best result. 

Part of this process is our periodical tax planning service which looks at your specific situation BEFORE the year ends. 

This will provide you with the guidance to:
  • get the best tax outcome
  • beat any deadline
  • make the right decisions and, of course
  • SAVE TAX



Management Meetings & Performance Monitoring

We have the experience to help you manage and monitor your business and its performance.  Are your sales on track?  Were they greater than last year?  Are overheads increasing?  Are your staff levels suitable?  The answers to these questions aren't always easy but, if we work together to find them, you'll have a more profitable business as a result.  We use a range of tools as part of our management and performance services including:

  • Benchmarking
  • ROI Analysis
  • Periodic reporting
  • Cashflow and Budgets
  • Planning days
  • Advisory Boards

 

 



Benchmark Report

Have you ever wondered how your business performs compared to your competitors?  What is their average profit?  Are their sales higher (or lower) than yours?  Are you spending enough on advertising?  Are you paying too much rent?  Are your staff costs too high?  Surviving in today's business climate requires you to spend more time working on your business rather than in it. 

 

We can provide you with accurate, timely, informative benchmarking reports that enable you to:

  • See how your business compares to your competitors
  • Understand more about how the rest of your industry works
  • Analyse the key performance indicators in your industry

Equipped with this information, we'll work with you to develop action strategies that improve your bottom line.

 

Benchmarking is so powerful and informative, we recommend it as an annual process.

Strategic Planning Day - S.O.A.R Analysis

The pressures of daily business can often mean strategic planning takes a back seat, but to have a successful business it is vital to plan. We'll help you develop a strategic plan that examines where your strengths and opportunities lie, considers your aspirations then develops targeted results. If you want to know where your business will be in the next 3-5 years then you need a SOAR Analysis. Our plan will give you an insightful vision for the future, providing inspiration and challenge to you and your team.  

 

Our SOAR strategic planning process centres around:

  • Strengths – defining what you do well, together with your key resources, capabilities and accomplishments.
  • Opportunities – finding circumstances for leverage, competitive advantage and the elimination of weaknesses.
  • Aspirations – knowing what you want to be and what you what to achieve. A future vision to provide inspiration and challenge.
  • Results – Developing tangible outcomes to measure and demonstrate progress.



Cashflow and Budgeting

Are you holding too much inventory? Is this the right time to expand your business? Are you going to have enough cash to pay all your expenses every month? Surviving in today's business climate requires you to spend more time working on your business than in it.

We can provide you with accurate, timely, informative cash flow forecasting reports that enable you to:

  • Realise and understand when cash is available
  • Plan and prepare for expansion, stock control, and taxes
  • Analyse and anticipate key expenses

Equipped with this information, we'll work with you to develop action strategies that improve your bottom line.

To manage cash flow, you need a good budget. It is one of the best business tools you can have, enabling you to set financial targets and measure your performance.

Budgets will often improve your chances of acquiring funding as Financiers often require budgets as a prerequisite for funding approval.

The techniques we utilise to form your budget will enable you to consider future scenarios and provide you with goals and targets. There are many types of budgets. We can help you design the right budget for your requirements.

 



Client Advisory Board

Whether you are large or small, the value of business experience can never be underestimated. Opportunities can often be missed, or mistakes be made, purely due to inexperience at management level. The senior advisory group at Macquarie Business Accountants have more than 70 years combined business advisory experience across a broad spectrum of businesses. Whatever your business is, chances are we have helped or are still helping, others in a similar Industry as you. More importantly, our role allows us to work and learn from great managers across many businesses, continually helping us to develop and improve our own management skills. We have helped develop and grow many small, medium and large businesses and can bring invaluable industry experience to your Board or Management Team.
