Stuart Coulthard (Director) presented to about 60 small to medium sized businesses at the Sandringham Yacht Club recently. There were 5 presenters in total covering topics including digital marketing, energy savings, business strategy, and improving business effectiveness. Stuart specifically discussed understanding your critical business numbers.

Stuart’s presentation included:

  • The results of a survey conducted by Rubiix of 50 small to medium sized businesses and what financial numbers they pay attention to. The results were cash is king.
    What about what financial numbers, what do you most pay attention to or track in business?
  • Small business tax tips. Tips to not pay too much FBT on cars and Christmas parties
  • Reviewing your own business and getting to understand what financial number drives your business. Once you understand that number, track it. Once it is tracked make decisions based on it
  • Benchmarking your business. By using the ATO industry benchmarks you can get an insight into what other businesses in the same industry or similar, are doing. Then you can implement a strategy to improve your business. Also the commentary provided from the ATO regarding their benchmarks, is it gives you a guide on any red flags for ATO review if you are outside the benchmark
  • Understanding your business valuation gap. Are you relying on a business sale for retirement? Do you know how much your business is worth? Will there be a gap in expected business valuation and actual valuation?
