    What are management accounts?

    Management accounts serve a number of purposes, the most important being to facilitate the analysis of a business’ recent performance and to forecast sales, cash flow and profits. 

    Typically produced on a monthly or quarterly basis, management accounts provide updated business information that allows directors to monitor progress against the expectations and forecasts that were set at the start of the year. 

    When produced with a thorough, detailed approach, management accounts should provide business owners and directors with accurate information that builds a comprehensive understanding of how every aspect of their company is performing. 

    By revealing costs, margins and break-even points, management accounts should form the basis for making informed financial decisions and guiding strategy. 

    Our management accounts service

    The relationships Simpson Wood has forged with its management accounts clients are particularly strong, given the regularity and frequency of the contact we have with these businesses. 

    Hiring us as your management accountant gives you access to financial information produced by people who understand every nuance of your business, available throughout the year to guide your planning and decision making. 

    We help our management accounts clients to take a pro-active approach to their businesses, and find ways for them to make savings, navigate growth periods, and demonstrate transparency to potential investors. 

    Our management accounts service includes: 

    • A profit and loss account and a balance sheet as a bare minimum, 
    • Regular management reports including recommended performance measures, 
    • Regular face-to-face meetings to discuss your progress, 
    • Advice on tax-saving opportunities, 
    • Flexible support as and when you need it. 

    We can provide as much or as little involvement as you require, depending on your circumstances. 

    Our team has experience of a variety of accounting systems, including Sage, Xero & Quickbooks, and can produce invaluable management information to suit your business, helping you to make informed business decisions. 

    This may be by advising on how to extract information from your system, or by preparing monthly or quarterly management accounts.
