Financial and business planning

Decision makers today are continually challenged to cut costs, increase revenue, improve financial performance and achieve projects and strategic goals.

The challenge is in marrying conflicting priorities:

  • driving the business forward; and
  • protecting the organisations financial assets.

Successful organisations need every part of their structure to provide value. At RSM, we believe the finance function should be no different. Today's finance function shouldn't be just a support operation. Rather, it should be a true partner within the organisation, actively contributing to its strategic aims and objectives. Organisations can achieve this by reducing their transaction processing effort and freeing resources to focus on value-adding activities like decision support. At RSM, we believe that driving performance in finance does not have to mean additional costs. By identifying inefficiencies and non-value-adding activities we can improve the service you offer and deliver a capability that reflects the demands of your organisation. Our finance function advisory service starts by determining the current situation. In this, we focus on four key areas:

  • capability and capacity;
  • organisational alignment;
  • process and reporting; and
  • technology.

The finance function needs to be aligned to the business strategy, and provide financial analysis and insight to support corporate decision making. With a global network of professionals, RSM helps CFO's and senior finance executives make their finance function more efficient, effective and aligned to the overarching business strategy so that the organisation can realise and sustain value over the long term.

Our experience of working with a broad range of clients across a wide spectrum of the economy has given us the insight and capability to enable your organisation to deliver its objectives. We’ll achieve this together through putting in place the right technology, people and processes in finance.
