In order for the owner to make better decisions, our advisors analyse the finances of the business. The information gathered from this process is organised into reports that are used to determine the financial health of a business. As a business owner, you have a duty to meet your compliance obligations, and a business accountant can help you do that. From assisting with data management, financial analysis, the generation of financial reports, as well as ensuring that your accounting practices satisfy regulatory requirements, business accountants can assist the success of your business.

We work with you to understand your needs, challenges and ambitions – and take a proactive approach to supporting your success. Leverage our fresh insights and perspectives, combined with practical business advice, so you can make critical decisions with confidence - get in touch with RSM today.

The connection between cash flow and profit is always interesting, with  Non-cash charges, facility upgrades and revenue items mean there is a low level of correlation between profit and cash flow.

Understanding and managing cash flow requires the insight that can only be gained from advisers who specialise in this area. Our experience in cash flow forecasting and review assists our clients generate the cash flow they need to ensure sustainability of their operations and allows them to maximise the use of any excess cash liquidity.

One of the ways to keep cash flow ticking over in challenging times is to make better use of government incentives and grants. As an example, we often find as business ramps back up from the Christmas break, we see manufacturing clients taking a keener interest in seeking grants and accessing other tax breaks. Government incentives and grant programs can enable businesses to continue to develop new and innovative products and processes.

At RSM, we work with thousands of large and small business owners to help them lay the best possible financial foundations so they can stay focused on a successful future.

SMSF benefits also include the flexibility of borrowing within your fund for investment purposes. Also, some small business owners may hold their business premises within their SMSF for a variety of reasons including asset-protection, succession planning and security of tenancy.   

However, managing a self-managed superfund certainly isn’t easy – there are significant compliance requirements and a whole host of issues that can arise as your fund follows you through the everyday situations that unfold in your business and life.

Our SMSF specialists partner with clients who are seeking expert advice and support to manage an established SMSF. As a dedicated local team, we are only ever a phone call away when you need us.
