Getting back in control of their work life balance

SOUTHWEST FABRICATIONS LTD  are a Barnstaple based manufacturing business, providing expert sheet metal work , fabrication  and precision engineering services across industrial, commercial and retail sectors throughout the UK and Europe.

Director Neil Brent explains that , like many SME businesses , they lacked the in house expertise to develop the business ,explore new opportunities and increase both turnover and net profits and were struggling with not enough hours in the day.

We had been recommended to R T Marke & Co Ltd as they had a good reputation for proactive tax advice and in particular they offered a service called Boardview which seemed to offer our business the in depth hands on help we needed .

We now have half day meetings every month with our accountants to discuss the business performance for the previous month, and we closely monitor and set targets for every aspect of the business . This has dramatically improved both sales and net profit  and also gives me a feeling of control over where we are and where we are going.

An added benefit is that we have restructured the business,  utilised new systems and software, which has enabled the Directors to reduce their work load and allow a much improved work life balance.

Neil feels strongly that the help from R T Marke & Co would be invaluable to any business owners looking to improve profits or get back in control of their work life balance.
