So why does this happen when you try to scale up your business?
The answer is quite simple yet this happens frequently enough to establish a discussion with our potential clients.
We often say that there are two roles played by finance in business.
Role 1) keeping the score. This role is relatively simple to achieve and it is usually performed by a book-keeper/chartered accountant. He/she will calculate tax and will comply with the law
Role 2) facilitate wealth creation. This is where we seek to modify the picture below and match rising sales with rising cash flows. The bookkeeper is not designed to do this for you.
