At Davisons we are experts in helping you realise your business ideas, from business start-ups, expansion, diversification, acquisition, through to succession planning and disposals. We have the breadth and depth of experience that you will need to make your plans a success. We can also act as a great sounding board for you to bounce new thoughts and ideas off and, as we don’t have the same emotional attachment to the business, can give you sound and honest advice.
Business owners are often so busy with the day-to-day running of their business that they do not invest time into looking into the wider business health matters of their business, or have time to explore new opportunities. Davisons can assist by bringing you an independent view to help spot opportunities, problem-solve, plan for the future and maximise growth and profitability. We have a large client base who have ambitions to grow and develop so we have come across many different scenarios and ideas. We are able to give you an unbiased view of what to look out for, to consider, and other options that you might not have considered.
Business Development and Planning is essential to help you maximise the profit within your business. Here at Davisons, we are able to assist with your business planning, including help you to identify your ideal clients and set up some agreed key measures for the performance of your company and its profitability.
From our experience with a number of different businesses, we have always found that measurement is key to any successful business. Our philosophy is that if you are unable to measure something in terms of numbers, then how do you know you are improving and growing? The service we can offer you includes:
- Audit your systems and processes
- Assistance in preparing a measurable business plan
- Identify key performance indicators
- Set achievable goals
- All with a view to helping you improve your company’s performance
Cash flow forecasting is another key area, if you have a challenge with your cash flow, this will inevitably lead to a business that fails.
Businesses which forecast their future financial performance and cash flow know what to expect, and are less likely to have hiccups than those who do not plan ahead. There is a saying that cash is king, but here at Davisons we also know that profit equals sanity. We can work with you to provide cash flow advice and forecasts to help you monitor your business, and also assist in presenting the numbers to Bank Managers, Crowd funders and other third parties that may require them.
We have a large network of trusted people who we work with to advise on choosing the right finance funding options for your business, including a variety of banks, and Crowd Funding, as well as other avenues. We have the flexibility of being able to work with your existing suppliers, or looking at new ones, depending on your requirements.
As well as helping you to prepare your company documentation for raising finance, we can also assist with:
- Evaluating alternative methods
- Asset purchases
- Alternative providers
- Assessing the tax implications of these options
We would like to work with you and if you have any questions or proposals, we would be happy to discuss them.
Grants can be a bit of a minefield, but here at Davisons, working with our Partners W D Consultants, we can help you ensure that your projects or propositions will have the highest opportunity of gaining a Grant. This could be for a newly formed business, a small business you want to grow, or a mid-sized one where you would like to expand.
Grants are normally time constrained and have a specific target in mind, with many applications being received for what is usually a limited pool of funds, it is imperative that you make the most of your application to make it stand out.
With our experience in successful grant applications, Davisons can help you to research and select a scheme that suits your requirements and enter a favourable submission by:
- Interpreting the conditions of the grant application correctly
- Providing the right level of detail and clarity within your application
- Identifying the benefits that the grant will bring to your business
- Detailing the costs involved, with a full explanation of the figures
- Demonstrating how the company would provide a return on the investment
We can also work with you if you are preparing to sell your business and can assist with:
