There’s nothing we love more than seeing our clients kicking goals. At Collins & Co, we see our clients’ success as our success. That’s because we invest time, effort and passion into each and every one of our clients. We understand just how challenging it is to run a business, and it’s even harder if you feel like you’re doing it alone. That’s where we come in.
Just like all our services, our business advice solution starts with a good old chat. It’s really important that we understand what you’re looking to do, as no two businesses are the same. Our team will work closely with you to create a business plan that guides you to reach your goals.
Our business advisors at Collins & Co are available when you need them most, providing specific advice that relates directly to the challenges your business is facing.
Not only do we offer wise financial advice, we also work with you to achieve your business goals and meet your compliance obligations in the most cost-effective way.
Far too many business owners don’t see the need for a succession plan (exit strategy). Often that’s because they don’t plan on retiring any time soon or just don’t want to think about it. The issues with this are:
It is essential for every business owner to have an exit strategy that outlines when and how they will leave the business. This plan should start years before you plan to exit, so you have the time and the freedom to fully consider every available option.
We aim to help your business with the following:
Do you know the actual value of your business? Most business owners don’t. A business valuation determines the worth of a business which can be used to set a sale price for an owner to sell the business or for a purchaser to determine whether it’s a suitable investment.
Valuations are prepared for a number of reasons, including:
Collins & Co can help if you need to value your business. We offer an independent opinion so you can find out what your business is really worth.
Business valuations are often used in court proceedings where there is a dispute and Collins & Co has experience here also.
If you wish to have your business valued or are looking at purchasing a business please feel free to contact us.
A great business plan identifies the heart and soul of a business. We can help you create a solid business plan that outlines your goals, resources, weaknesses, growth opportunities and more.
The experienced team at Collins & Co have helped many business owners in Melbourne and beyond, and we’d love to help you get your business plan sorted too.
No matter how profitable your business is, if you cannot pay your bills, you might be forced to close.
Employees can’t wait for their paychecks just because you’re waiting on your customers to pay. Your landlord does not care that you are having difficulties collecting from your debtors. Suppliers may not be willing to extend further credit, and you may not be able to purchase the goods you need in order to supply your customers.
“More businesses fail due to lack of cash flow than lack of profit.”
We’ll help you with all these challenges, so your business can keep on growing. We’ll prepare cashflow projections so you know how cash will flow in and out in the coming months.
We help our clients by preparing cashflow projections and budgets to help them assess how their business is performing against expectations. This is also a good way to pre-empt potential future cashflow issues.
Using the most appropriate legal structure for your business is very important. If you haven’t chosen the best structure your assets might not be protected adequately, you might have personal liability for business debt, higher marginal tax, risks associated with ownership, and legal complexity.
We are happy to work with you and your legal advisors to find the structure that suits your business best.
A shareholder, unit holder or partnership agreement is an important document that controls the rights and obligations between the respective parties in the business. It also helps with the clarification of the understanding between business associates and owners on how changes in ownership, both voluntary and involuntary (in the event of death or incapacity) will affect the relevant parties.
We’ll help you and your team get an appropriate agreement in place, without the hassle.
We help client organisations manage their routine corporate and statutory secretarial needs. Our services cover a broad range of administrative and compliance tasks.
