Here are some of the ways you can save money, improve cash flow, increase profitability, meet your legal requirements, save time and create wealth.
1. Profit
  • Effective tax planning will ensure any tax payments are minimised.
  • Identify and block leakages.
  • Use benchmarks to ensure your income and expenses are in line with that of your competitors.
  • Are your prices set so that you remain competitive? Analyse gross margin and overheads, break even analysis.
  • Don’t just look at numbers of sales but more at the profitability of each sale.
  • Investigate stock controls, cash controls, purchase controls and sales controls.
2. Growth and Wealth Creation
  • Channel marketing into high margin products.
  • Allow your trusted staff the freedom to come up with ideas to grow your business, customer base and products and services.
  • Regularly review (monthly) some aspects of your long term goals.
  • Focus on one area at a time.
  • Let the market know what you do differently to your competitors.
  • Do you network regularly?
3. Time
  • Use systems to ensure that all staff know what to do and how to do it. This will be a massive time saver and ensure accuracy.
  • Accurate and user friendly bookkeeping / accounting software.
  • Employ experts in their particular area.
  • Employing additional employees can free you up to grow your business.
  • Communicate with your accountant or trusted advisor before making major decisions.
4. Cash Flow
  • Do you have a strict debtors system?
  • Are budgets in place, not so much to constrain spending but to know where the money is being spent and if income targets are being met?
  • Is the banking of cash and cheques being rotated among the staff? Do staff take regular leave?
  • Are you taking advantage of discount offers?
  • Is stock being over-ordered?
  • Is your GST registration appropriate?
5. Asset Protection
  • Do you know if your business structure is appropriate for your business?
  • Insurances.
