How to get the best start to the new Financial Year

Welcome to our blog page! As you enter a new financial year, it’s essential to ensure that your finances are in order. Whether you’re looking to start a new business or maximise your returns, our team of experienced accountants and business advisors are here to help you nurture great business.

To help you get started, we have compiled the top three tips for starting out the financial year:

1. Review Your Financial Goals and Objectives

Take time to review your financial goals. This will determine the direction of your financial journey for the year ahead. Determine your short-term and long-term goals in alignment with your overall financial plan. You will then more easily prioritise your expenses and make informed financial decisions.

2. Cashflow Analysis, Planning and Management

Cash flow is the lifeblood of any business. Understanding your cash flow will enable you to make informed decisions around working capital requirements and have potential benefits to the bottom line. Developing a plan by analysing past and estimating future fluctuations will ensure that you don’t run into trouble having enough working capital.

Examine your historical cash flow data to identify any patterns or trends to help you understand when you can expect fluctuations. Analyse periods with large amounts of capital expenditure or when tax payments are due or when you have to pay your suppliers but there is a delay in debtor receipts. We can guide you through this with cashflow forecasts.

3. Tax Planning

Tax planning is a critical aspect of financial management. By assessing tax liabilities, estimating future tax payments, and implementing strategies to manage tax obligations, you can potentially save money and ensure that you are meeting your legal obligations.

Now is an excellent time to begin tax planning for the upcoming year. By assessing the results of the past year, estimating both provisional and terminal tax, and ensuring that you have a plan for the prospective tax payable, you can avoid any surprises and stay on top of your tax obligations.

By working with a tax professional, you can develop a comprehensive tax planning strategy, again we can help to ensure you meet your legal obligations and manage your cashflow.
