In the Black understands the needs of your small business

Having professional financial expertise on hand is a valuable asset for any small business, whether you are just starting up or are growing a well-established business. A professional and objective view of your business practices will offer new insights and identify areas that need to be improved – this is how we aim to consistently add value for our clients.

Start your business with the right support in place

Before starting a business, it’s important to minimise the risks by having the right skills, knowing your market and your competitors, and having a clear understanding of what makes your business concept different to others. It takes time to establish a new business and to build that all important client base – and it can be tough. So having professional support and expertise on hand to provide advice and guidance is invaluable.

Ready to take your business to the next level?

If you’ve already been through many of the growing pains of a developing business you may be tempted to sit back a little. But this will only allow your competition to thrive. In business you can’t afford to relax; you need to constantly review, refresh and update your business offering.

We’ll support you from the beginning and as you grow

A Business Review by In the Black will help clarify and address potential problems before they affect the successful growth of your company. We’ll then help prepare a business plan, bringing together all aspects of your business clearly and covering the important questions of ‘what’, ‘why’, ‘when’ and ‘how’. In addressing the ‘how’ question, it’s important to demonstrate how all the elements will fit together and work in the short and medium term. This is where our knowledge and expertise will really help. We’ll prepare financial predictions for your business and produce budget profit and loss, balance sheets and cashflow forecast over a period of time.

We can conduct a Business Review just once or as often as you need. Designed to provide you with practical and expert advice on how to maximise the performance of your business, either through increasing revenues or reducing costs, you will know exactly how your business is performing and where it’s heading.

Need help setting up your accounting and finance systems?

Whether you are just starting out or feel that your current systems need to be reviewed, we can help you choose, install and implement accounting and administration software and systems that will suit your specific needs. We can also supply training for yourself and your staff to ensure that your business will benefit from the systems you’ve chosen.
