This is an area we feel passionately about as our main objective is to ensure the survivability of our clients businesses so that we can all benefit from a stable long term relationship. We don’t claim to advise in every area of business and few people out there know enough to do that but we are happy to share our experiences as entrepreneurs and the lessons we learned through running Northants Accounting.
We offer our clients the opportunity to meet up twice a year to discuss their businesses and future plans, this can be achieved through informal discussion or a planning and objective setting exercise depending on their preferences.
One of the main challenges for entrepreneurs is understanding their performance and unfortunately burying their heads in the sand can be a natural defence in order to protect their confidence when things start to go off plan. We work hard to create a culture within our business and between our clients where openly discussing the issues and creating an effective plan to tackle them becomes second nature.
As accountants based in Northampton we are in an ideal situation to help local businesses thrive and prosper, if you would like to work with an accountant who feels like part of your business and will take the time to understand what you want to achieve then contact us today.
This is an absolutely critical area for any business as it helps owners and managers understand what’s coming up and any actions they need to take to protect the business or to make sure they are ready to exploit any opportunities. As Chartered Management Accountants we have long believed that forecasting is far more important than reviewing last year’s accounts as it involves looking at something you can still influence rather than opportunities that have long gone.
We offer various levels of forecasting services ranging from creating a model you can easily fill in yourself to managing the whole process and helping you understand the numbers that come out of it. Time after time we have found that even the smallest investment into forecasting can lead to great rewards when it comes to making better decisions and improving your confidence as an owner/manager.

Many business owners are put off from using management accounts as they believe that the cost is too high, however due to advancements in bookkeeping systems they can often be achieved at no additional cost. We help our clients use a bookkeeping package called Xero which provides excellent value for money and usability as well as a selection of management reports designed to help you understand your performance and keep track of your creditors.
There are business owners out there who feel that there gut instincts on how their business is performing is enough to effectively manage it, however as a business grows and expands then it can be difficult to keep track of its incomes and outgoings without a proper system. The worst case scenario is a business owner failing to recognise and address a drop in performance or perhaps even miss-pricing services because they don’t understand their overhead structure.
