To help small business owners who want to better understand, manage and control their business finances, Ivan has just written and published a brand new book “Small Business Financial Management: how to manage and control the finances in your small business”. It’s out now on Amazon.
The book covers a wide range of financial topics that are specifically relevant to people who want to start, run and grow small enterprises – including for-profit, not-for-profit and charities, too.
Part 1 starts with the absolute basics – no prior financial knowledge assumed – before building up to more advanced topics in parts 2 and 3, and concluding in part 4 with a discussion of some of the biggest financial decisions that small business owners often take at some stage in their career.
The book can be used as a complete introduction to small business financial management, or, for those who are confident about the basics, a reference book on specific financial management issues.
A small selection of topics covered in the book include:
- Basic financial processes
- Selecting accounting software
- How to read profit & loss, balance sheet and cash flow statements
- Preparing and interpreting management accounts
- Financial analysis and ratios
- Cash flow management and working capital
- Choosing a business structure
- Managing dividends
- Registering for VAT
- Paying yourself
- Employing staff
- Buying business premises
The book is now available to buy on Amazon, and (from next week) in our Kirkwall and Edinburgh offices. Priced at only £12.99 for over 300 pages of solid financial tips and guidance written specifically for the small business owner, we hope the book will make a really positive impact.
