What are your retirement dreams?
Your financial plan is how you will retire. We all want to retire with a certain comfort level and picture, typically with great clarity, the activities we’d like to enjoy in retirement. Ironically, more than 50% of Canadians have no financial plan, and more than 75% know that they should be saving more than they are. Having a concrete financial plan that takes the guesswork out of the process is the only way to achieve your retirement dreams.
At Accelerate LLP, we demystify this process by showing you how the math works and the critical parts of your financial plan, including what items will ultimately have the most significant effect on your quality of life during retirement.

Understanding Cash Flow
Too little cash is a problem that every small business faces at one point or another. A proper understanding of the magnitude and timing of cash inlays and outlays separates successful companies from those defunct. Consider that many companies that go bankrupt still have profit. They simply ran out of cash. We have helped countless small business owners feel in control of their cash flow.
Leasing versus Buying
Vehicles, office space, machinery, equipment, and computers are everyday items utilized in small businesses. The decision to buy versus leasing can have a pervasive effect on your company’s day-to-day operations and must be carefully considered.
Understanding which product or service lines contribute to your bottom line is vital to your success. We need to sell more of what makes us money and less of what does not. While this may seem intuitive and relatively simple, we have seen many businesses do not follow this simple mantra because they don’t know how to allocate specific costs to their sales, such as; office rent, management salaries, and more.
Dealing & Negotiating with Lenders
Taking money from an institution or another private party typically results in new expectations. These expectations can take the form of banking covenants and quarterly calls to review the companies results. Having someone who speaks the same language as your lender can give you a competitive advantage.
Cash Flow Forecasting and Budgeting
Cash flow is king.
Cash is a funny thing, not enough, and it’s all you can think about, while too much money does not guarantee happiness. In the early years of any company, cash is king. Ensuring that the cash inflows match and exceed cash outflows is critical. Countless profitable businesses have folded due to poor management of cash flow.
