Consultancy & systems advice

Your professional and personal goals are central to our consulting services; we take the time to get to know you better so we can offer the best advice.

Finance Director Service

For many businesses the cost of employing a full-time finance director can be prohibitive. However, at Wilkinson and Partners you can make use of our Finance Director Service as and when you require. This may be for a few hours each month to provide input at your board meetings, or as part of a one-off project such as an acquisition.

Working as your finance director we can:

  • Regularly interrogate your financial and management information to help you make informed business decisions (we can also help you improve the systems you use to generate this information).
  • Support you during a business acquisition or merger, or help prepare your business for sale.
  • Pull together the required information to help secure funding.
  • Bridge the gap between your own finance director or accounts person leaving and the next person starting.
  • Provide top level financial and accountancy experience.

When operating as your finance director we work with your existing team including sales, operations, accounts and bookkeeping staff and of course your management team. Our aim is to produce (or check) financial and management information to help you make the right decisions. We don’t just look at things from an accountant’s perspective, our experience enables us to look at your business and the opportunities it has from an entrepreneurial viewpoint as well.

Outsourcing the finance director role can take a lot of pressure off you and your team and really help to drive your business forward.

Management consultancy

Our management consultancy service can review your credit control, stock control, budgeting and financial reporting systems and allow you to take full control of these key areas of your business. We can also help you address specific problem areas in your business such as gross profit , cost control and stock valuation.

Effective management information will allow you to seize opportunities when they arise or identify problems quickly so you can take effective corrective action.
