Financial Planning & Funding

Financial Planning & Funding

Take your accounts to the next level with a fresh look at how you manage your business finances in a simple step-by-step process.

Looking to get to grips with your business finances? Need to know your profit from your cashflow? This workshop is for you!

By taking your financial planning in bite sized chunks you will understand where there are opportunities to increase profits as well as avoiding potentially costly surprises later on.

Understanding your finances as well as knowing how to budget and where to access business funding is vital to ensure you can manage and grow your business effectively.

As many businesses have realised during the recent challenges, having a good grasp on your finances and being able to use that information to adapt quickly is very important to survive and thrive when the marketplace or entire industries change. We will look at ways to plan for future challenges so that you can develop a resilient and successful business, including diversification options.

During the workshop we will cover:

  • An overview of business accounts
  • Budgeting effectively
  • Forecasting & developing resilience
  • Understanding profit and cash flow
  • Capital and Revenue
  • Available funding and finance options
  • Adapting to changes
