Understanding your business story should be ELEMENTARY; a simplified way of analysing your business’s financial accounts and performance over a period of time.
ELEMENTARY assesses your business’s trading cycle highlighting where you were, where you are, and where you want to go.
Where you were
To know where you’re going, you need to know where you’ve been.
ELEMENTARY makes it easy to establish a clear baseline on which to build on, knowing exactly where your business has been tells us exactly where it should go.

Built from the data contained in your financial accounts, it highlights what needs to be fixed and changed, so that we can ensure that the business gets what it needs – making it far more profitable.

- Mature Businesses
Here is where ELEMENTARY can be crucial in helping you get to the next level. Once your business is established and the day-to-day operations are going smoothly, ELEMENTARY uses real-time “What if (?) Scenarios” using The POWER of ONE tool to illustrate any future financial decisions.

For most business owners, this can be the hardest transition to make. You are now ready to exit the business world and reap the fruits of your labour.
