Is your business struggling financially, operationally or you just do not have enough time to focus on the business.
Have you thought about restructuring your company? Have you heard the term “restructuring”, what is this, is this right for your business?
Restructuring is often misunderstood, and people think this of a negative thing. However, this is a positive thing. It means you are looking at the business from fresh pair of eyes. It is a positive exercise. Businesses operate in everchanging economical and financial world. What you are doing today might not be applicable in 10 years’ time. So of course, if you are still using a decade old methods you need to change. We often see various problems in the business operations. The legal structure is not right. Tax mitigation structures are not being used. The pricing tools are outdated. The bookkeeping methods are old and so on. When things done correctly the restructuring can deliver new methods of realising the full potential. The ultimate aim of any business is to be profitable and pay its creditors on time.
