Developing a business strategy to navigate the changing environment is an area we work on very closely with our clients.
New technologies and products have changed the way we do business more in the last twenty years than the previous hundred. Entire industries have arisen and disappeared in a rapidly changing environment that is still accelerating. From the corner store to a media empire, no-one is unaffected, but whoever adapts, survives and thrives.
So how do you navigate your business through interesting times? RSM business strategies aren’t documents that are read and filed away. They are adaptive tools that you can put to use every day to keep you focussed on your purpose, deliver on your promise, steer your business on its mission and stay true to its vision
Cloud accounting is revolutionising not only how companies manage their accounts but also how accountants are able to maintain and access business intelligence. It is well past the 'new' stage with many mature products and services now available, offering world class, real time dashboards for your business at a relatively low entry cost.
We’ve already helped many businesses make the switch to the cloud. Don’t think that your systems are too unique, complex or different, because we’ll take the time to know the way you work and provide prompt, honest advice.
Outsource your accounting and finance function and focus on your business goals instead.

Superannuation can be a major vehicle for wealth accumulation in your life.
But it’s important to understand where your super money is going so you can take specific measures to maximise your return.
It’s also important to structure your investments according to the level of risk you are comfortable accepting. Super funds usually have various risk options you can choose from. With so many funds and options to choose from, it's important to take the time to set up a superannuation strategy that is right for you. The set up of a self-managed super fund (SMSF) can be an appealing option for business owners and individuals who want to control their superannuation assets. Operating as a trust, with you as the trustee and member, this option also enables other family members to join, paying their contributions into the SMSF/s bank account. Once you have money in your fund, it needs to be invested to help you generate a return. Each type of investment carries its own potential risks and rewards and the investment portfolio you select will impact how much money you end up with when you reach retirement.
Succession & Estate Planning
Business people, whether primary producers, manufacturers, retailers or others, must all consider the succession planning and estate planning of their business.
The impact of a poorly planned succession can be substantial in terms of taxation, administrative costs, relationships and stress, so it is essential to plan for the future handover of your business. Those SME owners who opt for a well-planned succession enjoy greater benefits, both financial and personal.
Our succession planning consultants help SME owners plan and execute the smooth succession of their business, whether it be to new owners, the next family generation or upon their death or incapacity. As required, we draw on the advice of solicitors for legal issues.
Accounting and Business Advisory
While we provide peace of mind through taking care of the usual business accounting and tax compliance matters, our real value lies in helping you address business challenges and uncover opportunities.
We do this by developing a deep understanding of your needs, challenges and ambitions − taking a proactive approach in working with you across all facets of the business. By offering fresh insights and perspectives, combined with practical and pragmatic business advice, we can help you make critical decisions with confidence.
Whether it’s working with you to protect your assets, fund your business growth, or develop an exit business strategy to maximise your return for a comfortable retirement, our advisory services devise practical solutions to help you achieve your goals.
