In business, being proactive and planning accordingly is essential to your business’s success. If you are looking to invest in a business, it’s important to do your due diligence, assessing profitability, the business worth and growth potential. We have many years’ experience and will make sure you make decisions based on relevant information.

Development strategies to help your business grow
Business processes are the flows of activities that get things done in your business. Once processes are identified and measured, you can automate, streamline and even redesign them in the best possible ways for your business.
We can assist you to identify your business KPI’s, cost drivers & pricing strategies to ensure the long term viability of your business.
Using investment structure to your business’s advantage
The choice of an optimal business or investment structure influences your tax liability, asset protection, ongoing costs or perhaps even your clients – so the right structure for your business is critical.
You can call on our up to minute knowledge to aid your decision making.
Help you manage budget and cash flow
The approach you take to use time and money wisely to grow your business is not a linear process, but more a discipline of regularly monitoring your business performance, scanning your business environment and making decisions about the best actions to take. The measures that track how well you manage time and money include cash flow, expenses and productivity.
Your CAS team can assist in formalising these numbers and facilitate the ongoing analysis and review.
Develop a successful business plan
Your business plan is essential for your business – it’s your blueprint for the future. It sets the direction for your business and keeps you on track once you’re up and running. It’s also an advantage when you’re seeking business finance.
Your team at CAS can guide you in the preparation and implementation of your business plan.
Succession planning begins with owners and managers establishing a vision for the business. As each organisation is different, CAS will work with you to formulate a clear succession plan to fit with your vision and ensure a stronger future for your business.
We will liaise with other advisors to ensure the plan is tailor made.
