Finance is tricky!  Isn’t it?

Most business people want to spend more time running their business and less time ‘doing’ their accounts.

Without a clear view of where your business is with regard to client invoices, supplier invoices, VAT submissions, cash flow, overhead management to mention a few areas, it’s no wonder that many businesses feel overwhelmed by the accounting and management accounting needs of the business.

It doesn’t have to be complicated, and while of course it’s necessary to have an accountant manage your affairs, the day to day running of your business can be made much more visible to you and key management can be focussed to the areas that need attention in real time.

I have helped many organisations – large and small operate more effectively by implementing a management accounting process based on Sage Line 50. The product provides a well established framework for making sure that for example you can easily,

  • Make complex business decisions and plan ahead
  • See an instant snapshot of earnings and spending
  • Handle everything to do with products/services
  • Control budgets for key areas of your business
  • Improve cash flow though better planning
  • Produce financial reports to suit your business
  • Find out who’s your best customer
  • Find contact details quickly and easily
  • Decide if you should charge more for products services
  • Control and track all credit control related dealings
  • Tackle quotations and invoicing
  • Apply flexible discounts to win business
  • Track costs and profits related to win business


Sage Line 50

Sage 50 accounts is the UK market leader with more than 90% of accountants recommending the product to SMEs. Little wonder because it does much more than manage day-to-day finances, it provides a full integrated accounting solution that allows you to control and manage all the financial aspects of your business and most importantly to grow as your business grow.

I have assisted numerous organisations to make better use of their accounting information, establish Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) and improve business processes relating to management information and ‘useful and meaningful accounting data’.
