Business Advisory Services for SMEs

Small to medium sized businesses make up the majority of New Zealand’s economy. We keep the wheels of commerce turning, and provide valuable products & services to people throughout the country.

The accounting and advisory needs for small businesses are much different than their larger competitors. Every company operates a little differently and has varying accounting requirements, depending on their size and stage in life.

Business Advice Tailored For You

To support the needs of small to medium sized business owners, we offer a range of business advisory services:

  • Business planning and goal setting – we can help you to develop a solid strategy to guide the direction of your financial future. By setting specific, measurable and realistic goals, we work together to craft a roadmap to bring your dreams to life.
  • Assistance with banking requirements – banks often need specific documentation to assess loan applications and open new accounts. When required, we can generate the right financial reports to simplify the process of working with banks.
  • Company structure – ensuring that your organization is setup properly to minimize risk, reduce tax and increase profits. We can get involved right at the beginning, or work with existing businesses to improve what is already in place.
  • Cashflow reports – in business, it is often said that cashflow is king. We can provide regular cashflow reports to help ensure that your finances remain in a healthy position. By understanding whether more money is entering or leaving your accounts each month (and where it is going), you can maintain a good pulse on the activities of your company.
  • Management reporting – by generating internal sets of management accounts on a periodic basis, you can gain a much deeper understanding of your operations at a glance. If you’re thinking about selling the business or merging with another organisation in the near future, management reporting can be very useful.
  • Support network – we have relationships with a wide range of service providers such as business brokers, bankers and lawyers. When your work is outside the scope of our skillset, we can put you in touch with a trusted professional to look after you.

Business Support to Guide You in the Right Direction

The accounting industry is evolving rapidly. Many of the tasks that were once performed manually are now automated or simplified by cloud-based accounting software such as Xero.

In this environment, the role of accountants is shifting from preparing reports to providing quality advice. This is where we are different – advisory is our strength.

By working with Spencer Lawrence Accounting, you get the best of both worlds: efficient technology to reduce your accounting costs and expert advisory services that are tailored to your needs.
