Back office & business support

Our extensive experience in financial modelling allows us to scrutinise and interrogate business plans, in turn enabling management to make decisions based on legitimate assumptions.  We have a breadth of experience in developing flexible models and take a proactive and innovative approach in this regard. The smooth and profitable running of any business relies upon the quality of its core financial information.

We use contemporary cloud-based Quick Books, Sage and other accounting systems. So either using your systems or ours, we are able to provide advice on monthly, quarterly and annual accounts to ensure accurate accounting information in the interface that works for you.

We have designed and implemented accounting systems and control procedures for clients from new start-ups to successful enterprises across a range of platforms and industries to optimise their business process.
