All looks good now since I have been working with Julia and her wider network over the past few months. We have a much better idea of what the financial situation is and what needs to happen.
We have an experienced bookkeeping service to deal with day to day finance duties and successful credit control activity to bring in overdue revenue. My team have been challenged about their spending and providing supporting documents to assist in VAT Return submissions. Our ledger is now restructured and tidied to automate, share data and stop duplication of effort
Regular reporting and forecasting helped the decision making process when we needed to secure alternate ways of financing to help cash flow.
