Business Planning

When was the last time you had space to think about the long-term future of your business? Our business planning team will work on your business closely, reporting back on actions to be completed.

Strategic Business Planning

We all know that having a plan is crucial to success. But the day-to-day running of a business is a full-time job, one that makes it hard to carve out time to consider your future goals.

Collaborating with a trusted third party gives you the time, insight and confidence to plan for the future.

 At Mazars, we have a proven three step approach to Business Planning.

The first is to help you determine your medium and long-term goals. Are you aiming for international growth or selling your company before retirement? We can bring clarity to these decisions. 

Our Business Planning team - made up of management consultants, industry specialists, accountants and economists - then put together a strategy to achieve these goals, together with a detailed plan and actionable steps, tracking performance through measurable KPIs.

Finally, we provide crucial ongoing support to ensure the plan is executed successfully and on schedule, making your business dreams a reality.

How we can help:

  • Strategic market research and analysis
  • Market positioning and commercial direction
  • Industry and competitor analysis and benchmarking
  • Financial modelling and decision support
  • Financial optimisation and margin improvement
  • Improved financial analysis and management reporting
  • Shareholder alignment

What our clients say

Richard Beal – Tate Business Group

"As a business, with an established team of over 15 years, it was refreshing to have Gareth and Helen work with us in developing our next step business plan. Helen and Gareth offered enthusiasm and support which encouraged us to step outside of our comfort zone and reflect on a different way of doing business.

Linking in to the tried and tested Optimize model stimulated the right questions to be asked, and as a result developed a new train of thought which has now moved us to a more focused, driven mind-set for the business. I am looking forward to our continued work with Gareth and Helen as we implement this new plan."
