Prepare for sale
Maybe the business you’ve founded is doing pretty well but you want to move on. Perhaps you’re retiring. Maybe you just want to explore new prospects.

He’ll help you find a great new manager and team, document all your processes, navigate you through regulations and legal requirements and make sure the sale satisfies all parties.
A budget is one of the most important parts of any business, yet there’s an art to planning one successfully.

"I have known Pat for over ten years – first when he was a client of mine and in more recent years, me as a client of Pats.
What I like most about Pat is that he is a straight shooter – he tells it how it is – whether its your books, your budget, or your business. But he doesn’t leave you wondering because he is able to home in and assist you with your business challenges – no matter how difficult and stressful they may be.
I’ve come to know Pat as the cash flow expert. He quickly sees where your business is leaking profit and can readily assist you to implement business strategies that will dramatically improve your cash flow.
If you are seeking a reliable accountant to keep your financials and tax obligations in order, Pat can do that for you without any fuss. But if you are seeking an accountant who will also strategise with you to reduce your expenses, boost your cash flow and keep your business growing, then I strongly recommend you talk with Pat. He’s a man you can like and trust to do what’s best for your business."
