Financial MOT

If you are a little confused with your accounting or finance:

  • My cashflow is unpredictable
  • I don’t have useful or timely financial reports
  • I’d like some effective, independent financial advice
  • I feel my accounting could be improved, but I don’t know how
  • I need to raise some funds

Then try our highly subsidized (£590) and refundable Financial MOT to solve these issues in a low-risk manner.

What is the purpose of the Financial MOT?

The purpose of the Financial MOT is to identify profit improvement opportunities. This can be through identifying;

– Efficiency improvements
– Process enhancements
– Cost reductions
– Growth options
– Improved performance information

Depending on your needs, we can undertake a General MOT or a Customised MOT.

Our Options

Standard MOT

Customised MOT

Choosing the right option

Two types of Financial MOT are available;standard and customised.  Both seek to identify potential areas for improvement

Option 1: Standard MOT

For a standard MOT, we will review all financial aspects of your business to identify opportunities to improve processes, performance and cashflow.

Using our extensive financial experience in a variety of industries, we identify weaknesses that can be solved and opportunities available but not yet taken.

Contact us to discuss your detailed requirements. 

Option 2: Customised MOT

Alternatively, if you have a specific requirement you receive a customised  MOT where we focus on a particular financial aspect which you have already identified as an area of interest.  Often this might be a need for financing. If you need funding: Ex-city banking experience and a successful track record in completing various forms of financing will maximise your chances of securing funds.  Based on your current and future performance we will advise you on the most suitable form of financing available, its sizing and likely impact on your business.

Contact us to discuss your detailed requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

A financial MOT is a very quick and cheap way of identifying financial problems that you might not even be aware of yet together with opportunities to improve profits and cashflow.  It also allows both parties to build up a working relationship.

Having demonstrated the benefits to both parties of working together and building up trust, a successful MOT will naturally progress to a broader and on-going agreement to work together.

The whole process incorporating financial analyses, site visits and a concluding report is completed within one month.
