Business Advisory

A good advisory service will help a client achieve their business goals. It’s as simple as that.

Virtual CFO

Many small businesses struggle to afford a full time CFO. This is where a virtual CFO is an excellent alternative and can make an overall difference to the success of a business.

SiDCOR has a team who are responsible for helping clients with business and commercial matters beyond tax and asset protection. These services are fundamental to how we help business owners achieve their goals, supporting them with issues such as cash flow, profitability and growth aspirations. We customise all Virtual CFO services based on individual needs and circumstances.

Business Valuations

Knowing the value of your business is critical particularly if you are looking to buy or sell, to make your business public, or even just to meet your tax obligations.

The team at SiDCOR work with clients from all industries to assist with their valuation needs, including forward planning around the company’s strategic goals and desired outcomes, and addressing the legal and commercial requirements in the process. We take into account the relevant sector, operational structure, and stakeholder expectations in order to prepare any documentation including Independent Experts Reports (IER).

Business Acquisitions

When looking to acquire any business it is crucial to gain an understanding of its true financial position and the extent to which it is performing operationally.

Our team at SiDCOR will help you ascertain whether this is the right business to achieve your overall objectives, and if so, help navigate the complexities involved in the purchase. These include evaluating the business structure, due diligence, managing tax liabilities and making sure all tax concessions are optimised, as well as reviewing all legal documentation.

Business Sales

Several factors that business owners may not be aware of can lead to sale prices being below expectation which aren’t apparent on a profit and loss or balance sheet.

Maximising a business’s sale value is a process that can start years earlier. Having a clear plan of what is required and time to work through it is essential. As is presenting a business in the best possible light to attract buyers and desired price. Our team can help you maximise the saleability and help future-proof your business.

Advisory Boards

An advisory board is a select group of people, independent from the business, who provide advice and support to the owners, directors or shareholders.

SiDCOR can help you establish, coordinate, and capture data from your board, to help you keep a finger on the ‘pulse’ by tracking areas such as profitability, cash flow, tax obligations, pricing, and spending. Understanding these core details of your business can help when business is booming as well as when things aren’t going to plan.

Finance Applications

Our team at SiDCOR can provide you with advice on applying for finance and help you with the application process.

We aim to achieve the best results for our clients by working closely with your financial broker or bank in all stages of the credit application process, particularly in the early stages where financial institutions are increasingly relying on experts to explain the business health and future prospects of an applicant.

What we do as Virtual CFOs?

We start with an initial review to get a high-level understanding of a client’s business model, the core challenges and opportunities. This process will include: Initial discussions with the client & their accountant to understand any specific needs or issues, review of relevant business planning materials to understand where the client wants to go, financial statement analysis of recent financial statements and management accounts to identify any changing trends or performance variance against benchmarks.

David Edmunds – Business Advisory Director

I like to think my job is helping clients find the best possible way to improve the performance of their business. How can we reallocate resources to get a better outcome? Why is cash flow slowing, and what can we do to change that? How could we reduce the business’s risk exposure? Working through these types of questions with clients and seeing the impact it has on their lives when answered is extremely rewarding. It makes it very easy for me to come to work each day.
