What is a business advisory service?

Business advisory is a range of services and solutions specifically tailored to your unique business needs, extending beyond fulfilling your obligations to HMRC and Companies House.

To unlock your full potential, there are three essentials that every business should have:

  1. A business plan – where are you going?

  2. A business forecast – how will you get there?

  3. Ongoing reporting and accountability – Where are you now?

Understanding your goals and how you will achieve them, plus an awareness and knowledge of your current position, will empower you to make well-informed decisions and maintain focus on achieving your objectives.

For example, an entrepreneur aiming to enhance the value of their company for a future sale will require a different set of services and advice compared to an entrepreneur focused on transitioning away from any direct involvement in the day-to-day management of the business.

Why you may benefit from our business advisory

There are many reasons why you can benefit from our business advisory services, from putting you on the path to reach your business goals to helping steer your business in a new direction.

Here are just some of the reasons why you might benefit from our business advisory services:

  • You feel that your business is controlling you rather than you controlling the business.

  • You began with a clear vision for your business but have struggled to bring it to fruition.

  • You have fallen out of love with your business.

  • You have a never-ending list of things you need to achieve but don’t know where to start.

Our business advisory services

Looking to take your business to the next level? At Spotlight Accounting, we specialise in helping clients of all sizes and across various industries improve their core functions and achieve their goals.

Our business advisory services are here to push your business in the right direction by offering practical solutions, resources, technology, and advice to aspiring entrepreneurs. We’ll get to know you and your business so we can offer the right level of support to help your business thrive and grow.

Here’s how we’re making business easier for you:

Business plans

At the core of all advisory work is formulating a solid business plan. This requires a collaborative planning session where we work with you to create a concise, one-page business plan that serves as the roadmap to success.

During the session, we will identify and prioritise your business ideas and key goals, create effective strategies and establish a clear timeframe for achieving them.

Ultimately, this plan provides a clear, focused direction, eliminates procrastination, and puts you back on the pathway to success.

But first, we’ll need some essential information from you to really be able to tailor our services. We’ll ask you:

  • Why your business exists

  • The vision and direction of your business

  • The values of your business

  • What your business needs to deliver to you

  • What are the business opportunities

  • What are the vulnerabilities within your business

This session gives us the knowledge and resources to provide tailored advice and expertise for your business needs.

Raising capital

Part of getting your business to where it needs to be can involve raising capital to fuel growth. With the necessary finances, you’ll have more opportunities to invest in business expansion and navigate any challenges that may come your way.

We will work with you to secure the required funding for your business needs, whether through loans, equity finance or sourcing other investor opportunities. We’ll assist you through the entire process, from finding the best type of funding to ensuring all paperwork is complete.

Business acquisitions and mergers

If you plan to grow your business through acquisition or merger, our business advisory services provide the opportunity to do so with ease. We’ll cover all aspects of due diligence, business valuations, financial modelling and risk assessments so you can focus on growing and improving your business.

Financial consulting

Ensuring your finances are properly managed can help you overcome the various challenges of running a business. Our financial consulting support involves project-based initiatives aimed at achieving your business objectives. They encompass a range of activities, from strategic tax planning to navigating business restructures and refinancing.

Exit planning

Entrepreneurs are often so focused on building their businesses that little thought is given to planning their exit strategy.

Recognising this, it is crucial to understand how to effectively manage your exit and pinpoint the optimal moment, as it is fundamental to maximising the value of your business. Our business advisory services are designed to help you manage this process, working in partnership to help you achieve what you want from your business.
