Independent Commercial Advice when You Urgently Need It

Is your business struggling to achieve the results you expect? Are you unsure how to grow the company? Or do you need new direction and focus to take it to the next level? Our business profit consultants at S4B can help.


At S4B we have extensive experience in helping small and medium-sized businesses to refocus, leading to rapidly  increased growth, profitability, and improved cash flow.

We offer a range of company services, which we can be provided individually or in combination, depending on your situation.

Short-Term Business Stabilisation

If your business is facing an immediate financial crisis, we may recommend urgent steps to stabilise the situation. This might include negotiating with HMRC, creditors, or your bank on your behalf. Our professional business consultants will advise the company directors on their responsibilities, and carry out any firefighting requirements to bring the situation under control.

Once the immediate danger is at bay, we will be able to advise you on making longer-term plans to put you on a better track for the future.

Commercial Review

The best way to establish how our profit consultants can help your company achieve improved results, is to carry out a comprehensive review.

We will discuss the present situation with the key managers responsible for specific areas of the business, gather information, and come up with the best possible solutions for you.  In the process we’ll ask questions about your:

Business Processes

  • Strategy
  • Management
  • Human Resources
  • Legal Processes
  • Overheads Controls
  • IT Infrastructure
  • Sales and Marketing

Financial Planning and Management

  • Taxation Planning
  • Margin Management
  • Account Management
  • Cash Flow Management
  • Processes and Controls
  • Working Capital Management
  • Reporting and Financial Control

Our business profit consultants will then produce a detailed report, summarising our observations, the potential consequences, and our recommendations. This will then be presented to the senior management team.

We will produce an interactive rescue or action plan that you can use to track your progress and measure your success.

Improving Operational & Financial Reporting

We frequently find that under-performing businesses are held back by inefficient operational and financial reporting.

Improving the reporting processes will often highlight areas that need to be addressed. We will be able to assist you to make plans for improvements that are achievable, and backed up by specific action plans. The new reporting processes will enable you to track your progress, or lack of it, and immediately address any new issues that arise.

As part of the reporting overhaul we’ll also ensure accurate forecasts are produced, at a divisional or managerial level if appropriate, which the management team can understand and own.

Refinancing & Credit Restructuring

Are you struggling to pay back bank loans or to meet the terms of an agreement with a private investor? We can help with our refinancing services.

We’ll provide you with the information you need to negotiate with your creditors, or liaise with them on your behalf to agree a more manageable repayment plan.

Ongoing Support

Once your business is on track towards a more stable financial future, we can provide additional ongoing support  to ensure the company stays on track, and has the best independent commercial innovative advice.
