Starting Up

It can all be a bit daunting when you are contemplating going into business. Business Like can help you navigate this start up phase by ensuring you are comfortable with the pro’s and con’s of buying a business or setting one up from scratch. They can assist you with the most appropriate business structure and ensure you understand the potential future income and expenditure forecasts and cash flows.

You may have heard the saying ‘Cash flow is King’. We firmly believe this – having a cash flow forecast and budget is critical. It is a map to help you to see where you want to go and to give you confidence you are on the right path.

We can make sure you start off on the right foot…..

  • Business structures
  • Forecasting profit and cash flow
  • Business planning
  • Due diligence for business evaluation
  • Obtaining finance
  • Accounting systems and software

Business as Usual

Being in business comes with all sorts of obligations including keeping the IRD and possibly external shareholders happy.  Business Like can help you ensure you are meeting these obligations which should free you up to work on and in your business. 

We can recommend software packages to help you keep track of all things financial or we can process your information in house and take care of all your filing obligations or a combination of both.  This goes hand in hand with having timely information which will help you keep your finger on the pulse and be able to make informed decisions.

We can help you keep on track……

  • GST Returns
  • Payroll & PAYE services
  • Financial Statements
  • Tax return preparation and filing
  • Tax review, planning and advice
  • Business audits
  • Financial analysis


This is the fun part – we like to see and help our clients grow both professionally and personally.  There are so many facets to owning and running a business and by fine tuning some or all of these we can help you grow.  Independently reviewing your financial results on a timely basis, evaluating an asset purchase or making suggestions re your processes and procedures can be just what you need to unlock the next step on the growth ladder.

We believe unlocking the potential at a business level has a flow on effect in your personal lives as well and we can help you set personal financial goals too.

We can help you unlock that growth potential…

  • Financial performance diagnosis
  • Improve cash flow
  • Set financial and personal goals
  • Review efficiency
  • Information systems
  • Working capital / funding strategies
  • Business planning
