Ask Valerie is about giving business owners timely, accurate financial information. Getting the details right for tax compliance and giving control of their ledger back to business owners, so that they know more about their business.
Financial reports can herald growth, profits and success – and flag contraction, cash flow problems and potential losses. They help decision making, for example, increasing/decreasing employment, investing in equipment, what-if analysis with prices and quantities. Analysis of break-even point is essential for all businesses to know their cost structures. It helps to have those numbers right!
We’re also about making sure that the business information is collected, recorded and stored in an appropriate accessible manner and place. Making sure the “paperwork” is handled well allows us to remove it from the field of stress.
