Zones Conference

Posted by Craig Weston at Wednesday, August 09, 2017

Recently we presented to Zones Franchisees (Landscaping Specialists) at the Chateau Tongariro - our brief was to impart key accounting knowledge that Franchisees could use in the running of their business.  Some of the Franchisees are relatively new to running a Franchise so were eager to learn and develop their business.

Three key areas we looked at were:

  • Cash is King! Invoice weekly or monthly.  Collect your accounts receivable quickly!

  • Tax. It's a pain but it means you are making money.  Claim all the expenses you can.

  • Planning. A financial forecast for the next 12 - 36 months is key to know where you are going.

We also presented on Xero and how to best utilise it in your business.  Wow what a great session! Once you know xero and update it daily it's a very powerful tool.

We thoroughly enjoyed being part of a great Franchise and meeting all the Zones Franchisees.  If you need advice from us or training on xero, just ask. We are always happy to help.
