That’s where Five Rivers can come in and using your numbers, help you take a dispassionate objective look at your business and its profitability. The kinds of areas we can advise on include:

Procurement - is your purchasing the most cost effective and are your suppliers delivering value for money ?
Inventory - are you holding the right amount of the right kinds of stock ?
Working Capital Management and Cash flow - is your business starved of cash because you have too much money tied up in debtors and stock ?
Financing - does your bank deliver you value for money or are there better ways of raising finance for your business ?

Investments and Asset Purchases

Investments in plant, equipment and premises are often amongst the largest outlays that a business will make so ensuring that your investments are made effectively is crucial to your ongoing success.

Deciding on the best way to finance an asset purchase is a headache that most business owners face at some point or the other – is it better to lease, or to buy ? Should you use your own cash or borrow it from a bank ?
