Help You Reinvent
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.

Have you ever taken the time to consider what are the true strengths (or weaknesses) of your business? Or perhaps wondered which competitor may be the most threatening? Have you assessed if there are any new opportunities this year? Sometimes the answers to simple questions can provide powerful ideas and solutions for your business to grow. We can help you analyse these four basic areas of your business/industry and help create solutions that improve, protect and grow your business.
We can help monitor the value of your business (or a prospective business) using our Return on Investment Reporting (ROI).
By analysing the profitability of your business and its maintainable earnings, then giving consideration to all the factors specific to you and your Industry we can provide comprehensive guidance as to what prospective purchasers may pay for your business (or what you should pay for theirs). Take the guess work out of the process and get the confidence you need. Whether you are buying or selling - knowing the numbers is the key.
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:
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.
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.
As the famous Mr Kerry Packer once said, "Any one who pays too much tax needs his head read".

This will provide you with the guidance to:
