$20K per quarter being wasted – Business owner’s shocking discovery!


A combination of suppliers being overpaid and paid too quickly, customers paying too slowly and GST being handled incorrectly came to a total of $20K in wasted cash flow!


Lucky for the business owner, this was uncovered by one of our CFO On Call people, who also discovered:

    • The Balance Sheet was wrong (unhelpful if you’re applying for finance/leases, selling a business etc.)
    • GST was unbalanced i.e. transactions had been incorrectly posted to the control account meaning overpayment of GST.
    • Reporting wasn’t right – business owners were getting the wrong picture of performance.
    • General Ledger set up incorrectly – causing issues with reporting
    • Accountants being given the wrong information for tax reporting – causing overpayment of tax
    • Things being done inefficiently – wasting money and time
    • No organisation of who was doing what – causing confusion and stress
    • Too much complexity – simplicity saves time and headaches!


And what did it cost to get an in-depth and insightful review like that?


The CFO completed this comprehensive review for the business owner in just one day at a cost of just $2K.  That’s a ROI of 40 times what they paid!  Not to mention the cost of interest on overdraft, now less than necessary.  Also the stress of cash flow headaches… Now non-existent.  They spoke with their operations manager and bookkeeper to unearth these issues, both of whom were delighted with the outcome.
