Accounting

Find Out What Charter Partners Can Do For Your Business!

Today’s business owners have a myriad of responsibilities to manage, and overlooking any of them, for even a short time, can have a negative impact on the profitability and even survival of the business. Many owners cannot carry the ongoing costs of additional staff to help them manage the day-to-day operational issues, so how are they to keep on top of all the competing priorities?

If you were to engage Charter Partners to provide accounting services, you would find that not only are we excellent accountants, but we also have a range of specialist technical areas where we deliver broader outcomes that strengthen and build the business. Of course, if all you want is basic accounting services then we can deliver that, but why would you not take advantage of our many years of experience, and at least look at the programs we offer that improve your business in ways you cannot yet imagine.

The most important purpose of any management reporting system is to provide accurate and timely information on which to base business decisions. If your business is relying only on cash flow projections, income statements and balance sheet information, you are making corrective decisions on information gained after the fact. What you need to be successful in this unpredictable business environment is information that alerts you to possible issues before they happen, so you can take corrective action.

This is the type of information that we, at Charter Partners, can assist you to develop. Using techniques and strategies such as business benchmarking, graphical analysis and special purpose financial reports, we can provide you with an overall picture of the health of your business when compared to others in the same industry. If there are any statutory compliance issues you are unable to monitor effectively, Charter Partners can assist you.

Computerised Bookkeeping Systems – We Get It Right the First Time

Your business may have matured to the stage where your old, original bookkeeping systems are out of date and need replacing with computerised systems to be effective. Some owners make the mistake of buying off-the-shelf accounting software and trying to install it themselves, in the guise of keeping costs under control. By the time they have paid for a technical expert to fix their mistakes, retrieve important historical data, transfer it to the new system and get it running, it has cost thousands.

The productivity lost during the time their accounting system was not functioning can never be recovered. Charter Partners have technical experts who can set up your computerised bookkeeping systems and have them running like clockwork without your current systems missing a beat. We also provide ongoing software support for several popular accounting packages including MYOB and Quickbooks.

For clients whose needs are more simplistic, we at Charter Partners, are happy to provide assistance with WorkCover, cash flow projections, general purpose financial reports and statutory compliance.

We also work with clients who have several financial interests and wish to consolidate them into a single entity. Consolidations give our clients the opportunity to re-evaluate their business structure and optimise it for ease of management and also for any tax benefits that are available. Using negative gearing as a business strategy requires specialist accounting techniques which we can also provide.

Assistance to Prepare your Business for Sale

We sometimes have clients who have worked for many years to build a successful business and finally decide it is time to sell and either do something different, or retire. We assist them with solid and substantiated business valuations so that there is a proven justification for the asking price of the business. Our Profit and Loss for Sale strategy is an essential tool in any negotiations for the sale of the business to enable our client to receive the maximum price.

Our business expertise is proven and our service delivery exemplary. We offer our clients fixed price agreements that are clearly documented and contain details of the services to be performed, the price and the payment terms. You can budget confidently for accounting expenses because when the work is completed and the account arrives, there will be no surprises. There are no unexpected fees, no catches and you have full and unlimited access to all our team.

Let the specialists at Charter Partners manage your accounting and compliance issues, so you can get on with what you do best – running and building your business. We are sincere about building long-term relationships with our clients, and we are excited for them when they succeed. It means that we have delivered them the service we promised, and this has contributed to their overall result. This is an excellent outcome for both of us.
