  Financial Planning

Business planning is all about trying to predict what will happen and how your business can take advantage of future opportunities and mitigate risks.  We use our in depth industry knowledge, past experience and bespoke software to predict with greater clarity your income and expenditure over a specified period.

Our budgeting process always starts by assessing your needs and ambitions.  Since 1962 we have developed tried and tested methods to build budgets from the ground up by considering physical factors such as cropping, stocking, enterprise performance and the levels of overhead costs. Budgeting is more than a static prediction we will work with you to provide a wide range of options to help optimise the best way forward for your business. We make use of comparative (benchmark) information to challenge assumptions used in the budget.

We have a specialist in your region to help you with your business planning requirements.

Analysis and Appraisals

 “If you don’t know where you come from, then you don’t know where you are, and if you don’t know where you are then you don’t know where you are going. And if you don’t know where you’re going, then you’re probably going wrong”

Terry Pratchett

Promar business analysis and appraisals are designed precisely to enable you to understand where you are and how you can improve.

In practical terms analysis and appraisal of any business will consist of most of these steps.

If you want to get better it’s impossible to know what needs improving without understanding the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats you face.
