Planning and Growth

Markets change, technology advances, and local and global conditions fluctuate. As a business owner, your own systems, workforce and plans need to adapt and evolve. We refer to this as planning and growth.

When you need the financial analysis, market intelligence, forecasting tools, expertise and guidance that will help you stay ahead of the game, your FAJ accountant is the best choice.

It can be lonely as a business owner trying to succeed in an ever changing world. We can work with you to identify and take advantage of opportunities, to maximise your financial resilience, deal with issues or problems, and assist with matters ranging from personnel, to technology, productivity and succession planning. Together, we can create detailed strategies for ongoing development and success.

Choose the aspect of your business that you think merits the most immediate attention, and click on the link for the planning and growth service that best matches your area. If you’re not sure where to start, why not complete one or more of our free, short Business Insight Questionnaires, linked at the bottom of this page. The questions are designed to get you thinking more strategically about your business, and the answers will help us to determine how we can best help you achieve your business goals.

What our clients are saying about our planning and growth services

Adrian Wardlaw and the team at Francis A Jones have been instrumental in our business’ success over the past 5 years. The bookkeeping package has freed us up from administration, accounting and reporting to allow us to get on with our core business of providing quality psychological care to our clients. The regular Strategic Business Meetings with Adrian have been focused on keeping our business growing and on track, identifying non profitable contract margins, reducing overheads and unwanted business costs and planning for future business demands. I would recommend Adrian and FAJ to any business that requires a professional service to reduce the stress and worry of keeping up with accounting, reports, BAS requirements and needs assistance in getting a “helicopter view” of their business in going forward.

Funky Monkey Bars meets with Mark at Francis A Jones once a month to not only review the financials but also to talk about the big picture. It’s so valuable to have a third party who knows the numbers but is also strategically focused on our business. Mark has the business experience and is a great sounding board on all aspects of our business from Research and Development through to Human Resources.

Financial transparency of where you are now and where you are going is paramount in managing your businesses liquidity , cash management and funding requirements. Francis A Jones provides comprehensive projections and actuals which help us proactively manage any peaks and dips in our cash flow.

Business planning and strategy when your business starts to grow is critical. With so much going on its easy to lose your way and not stop and smell the roses. FAJ help us to stop and look at the big picture which provides us with clarity and purpose as we navigate a growing business with so many moving parts.
