Who we help
What problems are you experiencing in the property sector?
- Residential development
- Commercial development
- Land planning
- Buy to let
- First time buyers
- Tax rules & changes
Helping creatives solve problems primarily centres around helping you save
chargeable time, releasing you to get new work in to your agency.
An example is a company we worked with recently who was spending a full day
a month on bookkeeping work. We worked out that at the rate of creative time,
they could save over £12,000 a year in chargeable time, releasing them to get
the opportunities that are before them. In this particular company’s case, within a month they had gotten a new creative job worth £11,900…and there were still 11 months yet to go in the year!
We now work with this creative company on a regular basis, not only providing
their bookkeeping but attending quarterly board meetings and providing the
support of a virtual Finance Director to keep the agency focused on what matters.
When your business is family-owned, you combine all the challenges of family
issues with those of running a business.
If your business is in this category, we are particularly well placed to help:
- Between £750k and £20m in turnover
- High growth or with aspirations for higher growth
- Facing challenges that could pull you back from that high growth
High growth business
What constitutes a ‘high growth business’? In our experience, you will have some or all of these characteristics:
- Great potential
- Clearly defined plan for a growth strategy (not just seeing how it goes)
- Defined targets in these areas:
- Some non-financial aspirations
- Industry – could be any industry type, but typically it would be:
- Internet-based businesses
- High cash burn followed by massive growth in turnover and profitability
- People who have an idea
- R&D – something unique that solves a problem
An example is a client of ours who sold his business for £60 million. Following that he got bored, and decided to try again with a brand new startup. His targets were £1 million in the first year, £10 million in the second, and £20 million in the third. That’s a clear target!
