As a business owner we believe you want much more than just tax returns and financial statements which is why our focus is to provide strategies and business tools to help you grow your business, your profits and your personal wealth. For that reason we strive to help you ‘know your numbers’ and that includes identifying the profit drivers in your business. We use industry benchmarks to compare your business performance against your competitors and peers so you know what is working and what needs working on.

We do so much more than just tax. We view the tax return as the start of the client process, not the end and as ‘business and profit builders’ we provide strategies and solutions to help you grow the value of the business.

Thinking of Starting a Wedding or Conference Centre?

This checklist is broken down into categories including leasehold improvements, IT, marketing, capital equipment, furniture & fittings, professional services, licenses and permits, initial stock and working capital. These figures then automatically feed into an integrated cash flow budget to help you identify your finance requirements and they can also tuck into your business plan.

Menu pricing is absolutely vital to the success of your theatre restaurant, bistro, conference centre or wedding reception centre. We can help you do some price modelling so you know your break even point and how to maintain your profit margins when suppliers increase their prices.

Client Testimonials

“I was always busy in my business but my profitability was not a reflection of my time, effort and investment return.  After a business planning session with McHenry Partners, it was evident my systems were inefficient, our team members not productive enough and my time was being bogged down in less important areas of the business.

Over the last two years I committed to monthly consulting meetings with McHenry Partners. These meetings would identify the priorities of actions to work on my business to improve it. As a result, we have made significant improvements with better structures, systems and communication in our organisation and the team culture is now fantastic. I don’t have to worry about business cashflow anymore which gives me great peace of mind.

We now only have quarterly meetings instead of monthly, which keeps my General Manager and myself accountable to continue to improve the business. I would highly recommend McHenry Partners services.”

“I wish I had watched this financial presentation 10 years ago. Property Investment sounds a lot less daunting when you understand how it works. I thought I was a long way off getting an investment property, but I now understand I can use the equity in my home and I can afford the weekly net cost.”
