Data, Reporting and Analysis

Management Accounting is one of our specialities at Ahead for Business. We are truly an accountant for your business; helping your business to achieve profitability as you grow.

We help ensure you have the most up-to-date financial data at your fingertips, using automated monthly management reporting.  We can help you ensure these reports are easily accessible via cloud solutions so that all your team can be informed, wherever they are located.

Our aim is to help you make the right decisions at the right time, based on the latest information and analysis of your position.  These monthly management reports include key drivers that are vital to the business’s performance. They are normally non-$ statistics and are basic enough to easily recognise and monitor so that you can make rapid adjustments and self-correct, in order to achieve your desired goals.

One example is the total hours in the day that can be charged to the customer.  It’s easier for staff to record and monitor time than convert this to the equivalent sales value in $.

Regular management reporting will help you improve your productivity, determine pricing decisions, look at profitability of different products and service offerings, determine trends in margins, isolate profit and cost centres and consolidate financial information of different entities.

We can help you to benchmark your financial information against reputable subscriber information, so you can compare your business’s performance (e.g. gross margin, staffing levels) against other businesses in your sector.

Budgeting and Forecasting

We will help you set realistic annual, quarterly and monthly budgets and therefore cashflow forecasts, which are integral parts of business operations and management decision-making.

Budgets form the basis of target setting and, to be effective, must be flexible and adjusted as situations change. Whilst budgets are often perceived as a pessimistic indicator, we will show you how budgets can be help drive team alignment and engagement in your desired goals.

At Ahead For Business, we pride ourselves on being one of the most proactive and innovative Accountants in South Melbourne. Our strong and reliable team of professionals have an unparalleled accounting prowess and are known to deliver practical, tailored solutions for clients.
