GROWING YOUR BUSINESS?
If you’re planning for or expecting significant growth, we can support you in the following ways, either on a project basis, as part of our ongoing support to you as your Finance Director, or through flexible ad hoc support
Cashflow or profit trouble-shooting
Build the resilient route forward
Together we can locate the source of the problem. We’ll dig beneath the surface to locate issues affecting the wider business - and figure out what needs to be done to turnaround your cash flow and profit.
Identify your sources of profit, cash flow and commercialisation and discuss targeted recommended actions.
Root cause resolution
Troubleshoot with us on the deeper root causes of your current challenges and find direct routes to action.
Speed strategic problem solving
Gain insight so you can decisively plan for the future
Talk to an experienced and commercial finance director who understands what you’re going through. Find a way forward through a balance of challenging and thought-provoking questions and discussion.
Insightful business information
Gain understanding for your crucial decisions
Support your decision-making through our forward-planning management reporting. We’ll investigate what the current financials are telling us, what this means projected forward and deliver the analytics together with insightful commercial commentary. Collaboratively we’ll mapp operational and strategic options to move your business forward.
These reports can also form the basis to help you secure fund-raising from investors and lenders.
Modelling financial outcomes
Gain clarity to inform your complex decisions
When the future’s uncertain it’s hard to visualise all the options and outcomes. And yet decisions are critical at this time.
Our FD insight and modelling is helping clients project decision-focused options. Our models take into account multiple layers of unknowns and variables - the worst, good and best case scenarios.
These models can then be used to secure a loan, set business recovery options in place, plan for a restructure or to understand the impact of mergers and acquisitions.
Strategic business planning
Give direction and purpose to your hard work
Creating a budget on a spreadsheet is relatively easy, making it happen takes real understanding of the business and the people who will deliver it. Telling people what to do doesn’t work, especially when you need them to move with change.
We can work with you on a business and a people level, considering what is practical and deliverable strategically, financially and operationally. Together we can remove barriers to growth, add cashflow resilience and strengthen opportunities for profitable growth.
Mentoring your finance team
Increase the experience level of your in-house team
If you’re looking to maximise your team’s development and raise their contribution to your business, mentoring could be what you need. We can also give guidance on structuring your finance team as you grow.
Regular ongoing support
All the above, available to you every month
Acting as your finance director
Bring us on board for a regular number of days each month. We’ll share the financial oversight and strategic responsibility with your leadership team, providing projections, analysis and asking the right questions to help you commercially drive your business.
From £500 to £750 / day depending on FD level
Acting as your finance team
Whether you’re scaling up or an established SME, we can provide you with all the finance functions you might need, from bookkeeping and management accounting through to finance director.
The first step is to meet and understand your key priorities and challenges and together map out your requirements.

"I've been working with Amy since 2019 when I realised that I needed some expert finance support with my early-stage business. Amy on board was one of the best decisions I ever made for my business and she's played a critical role in helping me grow it. She's a mentor, advisor and expert accountant and a pleasure to work with. Recently I appointed her to my board as our NED CFO and I feel comforted knowing that the financial side of the business is in such good hands."
