- Development of Management Information Systems
Somebody once said "If you think management information is expensive, try ignorance".
All businesses can benefit from basic costing and budgeting techniques using most small business software systems. It is often far too late to
discover that you are not trading profitably when you get your year end accounts.
Regular management accounts with basic budgetary control and
cash flow monitoring will steer you away from potential problems before they creep up and hit you like an iceberg you didn't see.
- Product Costing
If you are a manufacturer then you will need to know how to calculate the full cost of your products, for both cost control and viable pricing purposes.
I can advise on how to prepare product cost specifications, showing your prime costs of manufacture (materials and direct labour), oncost for manufacturing expenses and how to absorb fixed and variable overheads.
Once we have a total cost of production then we can build up a target selling price based on expected operating profit margins.
I use the very popular Access Database system to produce bespoke business solutions.
Please contact us to discuss your individual requirements. Costs may be either on a fixed
price basis, or a negotiated rate per hour, depending on the type of work involved.
Monthly instalments from £ 20 may be available for straightforward accounts and tax cases.
