As Nobel laureate economist Herbert Simon said, "the scarce resource is not information; it is the processing capacity to attend to information."
Often, business operators are inundated with reports, calls, statutory requirement requests and more. Running a business today requires a high degree of sophistication and efficiency.
For example, have you ever found yourself asking these types of questions?
- After working twelve hours a day what have I made?
- Will I have enough cash?
- Where am I making money and how can I improve my business?
- How are my margins tracking and my net profitability?
- What should I focus on next?
- Am I achieving my goals?
- Am I so focused on day-to-day activities I’m missing what’s happening in the marketplace?
At KPMG we are passionate about helping our clients focus on the key items in their business. Not just documenting what they have to do to improve their business, but rather what they should do first. To help you achieve this, we offer these services.
"Even though our company is small with 8 full time staff, we have been working with KPMG for over 5 years. We find that the savings in stress and removal of roadblocks to success fairly reflect our ongoing investment in their services. KPMG is a valued source of independent advice, professionalism and assurance, which allows me to make more effective decisions for the growth and profitability of the business.
Through our ongoing engagement with one of KPMG’s strategic advisers, we have a great independent sounding board together with access to strong commercial guidance to prioritise opportunities and resolve major issues. On the other side, the accounting and tax services offer conservative, rigorous outputs, which we can rely on with confidence. "
