Business Advisory

Safeguarding and Sustaining Growth

When business is going well, it is easy to ride on success. However, if a major change occurred outside your control, it is likely that your business’ sustainability would be threatened. It only takes the loss of a key person, a recession or a change in government policy to alter the picture considerably.

IPP is on hand as a trusted adviser and business partner that you can turn to for Advice and Guidance, especially as you expand your business both locally and overseas. We specialise in the areas of risk anticipation and mitigation, and venture financing, and create networking opportunities to help your business expansion plans materialise.

 

We work alongisde Business Owners, Directors, CEOs and Members of Senio management from professional practices large, medium and small, and provide advice throught the Business Advisory Services.

KEEP YOUR BUSINESS ALIVE FOR GENERATIONS
Planning for the continuation of business upon the demise or permanent disability or illness of business partners can be daunting for the surviving partner(s) if the transfer of shares is not handled properly. Disagreement on the method used for the valuation of shares can be a major obstacle and the inexperience of surviving family members of the deceased partner may result in undervaluation of the shares sold. This delicate and complex process requires the expertise and experience of a trusted adviser. At IPP, we will counsel and advise you on business succession planning, covering areas such as keyman/keyowner life insurance coverage as a funding vehicle; sale and purchase agreement; corporatisation and professional management for business sustainability.
LOOK AFTER YOUR GREATEST ASSETS
Employees are the key assets of your company. But as every business knows, talented staff are hard to come by, and retaining the right people can be a challenge when other organisations are able to provide a more attractive remuneration package. Reward systems and remuneration schemes should be considered carefully if your business intends to retain its pool of talents. IPPFA assists in the development of a comprehensive employee benefit plan that includes group life, disability, health and medical insurance. We will also advise you in the areas of efficient tax and gratuitous compensation planning as well as on share schemes and options for key employees and senior management.
MAXIMISE YOUR CAPITAL
Profitable companies have cash reserves that may be left idle for long periods before being deployed for the purpose of growth and expansion. IPPFA provides advice on investment alternatives that could generate returns above the standard banking rate.
TAP ON ALTERNATIVE RESOURCES
When you operate in an environment where business opportunities abound, but credit facilities are not so readily available, the chances are you could be forced to pass on key projects that could otherwise result in growth for your business. Or you may wish to avoid getting into debt as a means of funding these opportunities. With IPP supporting you, you have access to multiple ways to fund your business operations. IPP will help you explore:

  • Creating a shareholders’ funding;
  • Funding from new shareholders;
  • Restructuring of ownership;
  • Creating a business plan to obtain banking credit and sources of funding;
  • Angel or private equity funding
  • Floatation of shares in the form of Public Listing
MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS
It is wise for businesses to assess the economic environment when executing their business strategies. Disastrous venture or investment decisions can be avoided if industry-related adverse macroeconomic issues are anticipated.
