LET'S GO 2017.......

LET'S GO 2017……………

Now that Christmas and New Year is over, and as of today, many of the school aged are back to school, it's time to focus on the year ahead (while still hoping to enjoy the odd bbq, the long summer evenings and, with luck, some sunshine) before spring and winter roll around.

It's time to begin thinking about those budgets and cashflow forecasts for the 2018 financial year – you want them in place by year end 2017.

It's time to focus on improving services to your clients and customers….. are there more and varied services you can offer? Are there improvements to current service lines?

New clients and customers…. Where are they going to come from? Is the marketing of the business adequate?

We at JBA are the same as any other business. These things are as important to our business as anyone else's. We will take some time out over the coming weeks to address these issues, to address our direction for 2017, to put in place ideas, plans and actions that we need to take to make 2017 as good as it can possibly be.

We recommend that you do similar, and as always, we are here to help you do this, not just to do your compliance work. We're here to make a real difference!

2017……..  BRING IT ON!

Christmas 2016 - 2016 In Reflection

It doesn't seem like a year ago that I sat down to write the 2015 In Reflection. The years seem to be rolling by faster and faster! I write this years In Reflection the day after Donald Trump won the Presidency of the United States of America. To us at JBA, the feeling is not so much "pro-Donald Trump", but more "anti-establishment". The immediate and medium term future sure look like being interesting times internationally, locally and financially/business wise.

As always, it has been a pleasure working with so many of you over the last 12 months. You, our client, are the life-blood of our firm and while many people think accountancy is just "number crunching", I can assure you that couldn't be further from the truth - it is in fact a "people profession". We at JBA get great satisfaction from working with you. Read more…
