FDO Business Advice Line
All you have to do is call. Advice when you need it. We offer you the ability to discuss with us how best to handle any difficult or abnormal issue.
Interpretation of management information
It is one thing producing management accounts, it is another understanding what those accounts are showing and what implications they have for the business. We do all we can to ensure you understand how your business is performing. Better information enables better business decisions.
Many companies have periodic management meetings to review progress. We can attend such meetings to provide both strategic and detailed financial input. In the absence of formal meetings we find it beneficial to discuss performance on at least a quarterly basis.
We also provide consultancy assistance to tackle specific projects as required. Recent projects have included the preparation of Research & Development claims, upgrading of management information systems, assisting with the acquisition of another business and reviewing the cost-effectiveness of a company’s finance function.
