Strategic Evaluation in your business – is this your New Years resolution

Business strategic evaluation

When a company commences there should be a clear vision about what the business strategy should be and how this will be achieved. In addition there should be a time horizon on growing the business with specific objectives in mind, including eventually the option to exit, whether by sale or ceasing. A business should re-evaluate its strategy every few years or more frequently to assess if the vision remains valid, or needs to be adapted to changing internal or external factors.

MW Interim Finance assists owner managers and directors in an objective review of their strategy and provides the resource to deliver on the changes identified.

Small Beer UK Budget ?

As is the case with any budget in recent times there is a mix of good and bad news for both consumer and business and the one delivered last week by the Chancellor was somewhat flat, (a bit like the 1p reduction in beer duty). This will do nothing to radically get the UK out of the economic woes for some years, with projections of better times past the next election. No matter who is in power politics appears to be more important than positive action.

There was good news for the increase in personal allowance for 2013/14 and the £10k allowance for the following year. The non addition of duty on petrol is not actually a saving to consumers who are consistently paying higher prices from the oil companies anyway.

For small businesses, the additional National Insurance relief of £2k on the hiring of new employees is a welcome move however this is not effective until April 2014. The move to a 20% corporation tax rate is good for larger corporate enterprises but does nothing for the rest of business. Other good news was the increase in annual investment relief for plant and machinery to £250k which reverses the decrease from last year and is effective for two years.

If you have a business with a will, but no senior level resource to implement operational improvements, strategic restructuring or if there is a project that requires review and delivery, an independent short-term interim finance director may be a way to make the changes. MW Interim Finance can provide a dedicated commercially focused finance director and business partner in “managing change effectively”.

Angel News – “Pitching for Management” Review

MW Interim Finance recently attended an Angel News sponsored event in central London, “Pitching for Management” and Martin Walby was asked for his views “This is the second event of this type I have attended via The Boulevard networking community. I was impressed by the enthusiasm and commitment of the companies presenting, both in terms of their products and service offering and the honesty with which they outlined their immediate management resource requirements. As an independent interim finance director it was also refreshing to encounter so many early stage businesses with growth potential against the background of a struggling UK economy.”
