Reporting and Forecasting

Base your most important decisions on REAL DATA, not gut feeling

Traditional businesses are operating in an increasingly competitive environment and responding to rapidly changing markets. When strategy is key to survival, managing the cashflow and regularly reviewing management reports and forecasts becomes critical to business success.  

Gain insights beyond the Profit and Loss

“Never take your eyes off the cashflow because it’s the lifeblood of business” – Richard Branson

It’s often assumed that profit is what matters most. However, analysing your cash flows and budget variances can provide greater insights into how your business is performing in specific areas.

We often hear – “I’m worried I won’t be able to pay my employees every month.” and “Our sales are great, but takes so long to get paid.”.  This is why business cashflow and performance should be monitored month over month, quarter over quarter, or at a minimum year over year. Discussing management reports and scenarios with your accountant can shed light on the problems and opportunities you need to take action on and provide cashflow strategies to implement going forward.

Our management reporting and financial analysis tools  transform your accounting data into visual performance reports.

Our software seamlessly extracts your budgets and accounting data from Xero, Quickbooks, MYOB and Excel data so we can quickly and easily show you numbers that make sense in a visual layout.

Customised reports are designed to show what matters for your business. 

Monitor trends and assess profitability, cash flow, growth and other key performance indicators (KPI’s). See where your business is headed in the short and long terms and reach decisions on employing extra staff, investing in new equipment and business model innovation.

Dashboard reports provide a high-level and comprehensive overview of the business.

Present relevant information at directors meetings and to external stakeholders, such as suppliers, lenders and shareholders. Be better prepared for meetings with your business coach or financial planner. 

Annual services packages include management reporting.

We can structure your reporting for a one-off project or keep tabs on your business by reporting on a regular basis (recommended). All of our annual services packages incorporate some level of cost-effective reporting on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. 

Start making confident business decisions based on reality!

Customer Testimonials

We are fantastic work with.
But don’t just take our word for it, take theirs!

Giordana Cocco

I found Electra after trying three different (recommended) accountants and she has been looking after both my personal and business matters for several years now.
Electra and her truly fabulous team have always looked after my affairs in a rigorous and systematic manner.
Every member of the small team at Electra Frost Accounting is endlessly patient and great at explaining tax matters in layman’s terms. I feel in great hands with them because they are knowledgeable, highly reliable and work prudently, yet striving for the best results.
Their approach is modern and streamlined, their fees are transparent, and everyone goes the extra mile, providing precious peace of mind for clients.

Electra and her team have become an important part of my business
Electra Frost Accounting and I go back to 2013, when I made the decision to jump off the corporate ladder and start up a copywriting agency. Electra explained business structures and set-up my company with ASIC. Since those early days, Electra and her team have become an important part of my business. Whether it is providing advice on taxation, superannuation, GST and expenses to completing my annual company and personal tax returns. I’m now less terrible with numbers!
As an added bonus, Electra specialises in creative industries (which I am in) so understands the type of work I undertake. Whenever a fellow writer or creative type ask me for an accounting recommendation I always say, Electra Frost!’

It has been the most wonderful experience working with them. I run a small business and have tried numerous other accountants but nobody else has had the professionalism and efficient online tools to give me the best customer service around. I highly recommend them.

We have worked with Electra Frost Accounting for over ten years and are very happy with the service. Electra and her team have been an integral part of the journey of our business, including the growth we’ve experienced in the last few years. They have ensured that our financials are always in good shape when it comes to reporting time, of course, but I’ve also appreciated their time and patience when it comes to teaching us new systems and alerting us to better ways of managing our financial situation. We highly recommend Electra to our creative business clients, as we work exclusively with creative clientele, and will continue to do so.
