New Year resolutions - do you pay lip service or take your business to task?
Did you, like many, resolve to do any number of things? If not, now is the time to be ready to grasp the opportunities coming your way as confidence slowly returns to the business sector

The pressures of New Year business issues (typically managing cash flow and juggling staff leave at this time of year) can often mean strategic planning takes a back seat.

If you're operating a small to medium business, or trying to get a new venture up and running, things might not quite be going your way, so it's not uncommon to feel a number of things like being overwhelmed, stressed or even conflicted.

With Dun and Bradstreet predicting a rise in business failure rates* and more businesses bankruptcies in 2013 yet to come, how can you safeguard your enterprise to be ready when full confidence returns?

To have a successful business you must plan ahead now - and the best way to do that is with our Strategic Business Review.

Let us help you strategically review your business operations to look at where you want your business to be in 2013 and the next 3-5 years, and exactly how you and your team can achieve these desired goals and objectives.

To complement your strategic review, Collins Hume proactively assists business owners to identify government grants for which you might be eligible. In the current economic climate, access to grant funding will be of considerable benefit to a growing number of small and medium enterprise operators who wish to make inroads to improving their business planning, marketing and e-commerce practices.

It is estimated that the total business grant market in Australia is in excess of $5 billion annually so why not check if you're eligible?
