Business Advice

Pro-activity and ongoing innovation is central to the DEB goal to provide clients with a business support that goes way beyond the narrow services offered by traditional accountants. Our goal is to offer pro-active and forward looking support to assist each client in meeting their specific personal and business goals.

There are many accountants who are good with a calculator and can show you clearly where you have been.

This is like trying to drive whilst only looking in the rear view mirror. DEB Accountants help and encourage clients, using pro-active support, to see where they are going. If you don’t know where you are going you are unlikely to get there.

To our clients in achieving their goals DEB offer pro-active support that can include :

  • Strategic Planning
  • ‘Understanding Your Accounts’ Session
  • Financial Forecasting
  • Management Reporting
  • Company Profiling
  • Taxation Advice
  • Sales & marketing Support
  • Business Health Checks
  • Company Sectretarial Services
  • Sage Training

Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is the process of defining a clear direction for the future of your business and formulating what you will do in order to pursue this strategy. Many business owners are so busy and hands-on involved in the day-to-day activities of their business that they don’t make time to take a step back and consider where their business is going.

Our Strategic Planning Sessions give you the opportunity to free yourself from the daily grind and focus on the bigger picture. As external advisors we can help you identify the issues that are of key importance to the future of your business and make strategic decisions to drive your business forward in the right direction. We can help you to identify the opportunities and threats that could impact on your business and assist you in formulating a structured and time specific ‘action plan’ which will get you to where you want to be.

The Strategic Planning Sessions are a pivotal component of a number of services that DEB can provide business owners to ensure they operate their business’s more effectively. Once you have established your goals this enables you to create plans to fulfill them. Our management account systems allows you to record your results and using our unique, innovative software we can assess your progress against your plan.

Financial Forecasting

Financial forecasting can be of great importance to your business. If you don’t know where you are going how can you hope to get to where you want to be? Financial forecasting can be a great way to consider the future progress of your business because it makes you consider the financial impact of uncertain future events and opportunities which may befall your business during the coming year. Financial forecasts are also often necessary when approaching lending institutions with business borrowing requirements.

Using DEB Forecaster, our in-house developed forecasting software, we can produce comprehensive reports showing how anticipated future events will impact upon your business’s sales, profitability, cash position and assets/liabilities over the next 12 months. We can also flex the reports to show how sensitive key figures in the reports, such as your anticipated profit and bank balance, are effected by other key variables such as anticipated sales. This effectively provides you with a number of different forecasted outcomes ranging from the best to the worst case scenarios (see below for a small extract of an example report).

DEB Forecaster forms an integral part of our extensive system which assists you in setting targets and goals, recording the actual results and analysing them in comparison to your targets. Via regular meetings we can help you review your progress and improve future performance and achieve better results.
