Helping business owners understand where to focus
There is a lot of talk in the accounting profession about business advisory. What is it, and what is it not?
At OBT, we believe that advisory is not a logical extension of traditional accounting services. It is an entirely different skill set. A cricket batsman could not do the job of the bowler. But they are both cricketers. The oboist could not do the job of the violinist. But they are both musicians in an orchestra. A grower will unlikely fatten cattle. But both are primary production.
So why would you expect to be able to ‘flick a switch’ and suddenly expect your accountant to become a business advisor? At OBT we have the expertise and leveraged solutions, supported by an experienced Business Solutions team to help our clients in new ways.
Key benefits when working with a business advisor:
- Build on your strength with numbers to show what is possible in your business
- Discover how to zero in on the most impactful drivers of revenue and profit
- Having the language to engage your team in setting strategic direction
