SUPPORT FOR FRANCHISORS
Franchisors have specific requirements as they seek to optimise returns from businesses managed by others, as their success ultimately depends on the rapid uptake by franchisees.
Onyx work with franchisors to implement the appropriate financial controls to support the franchisee and alert the franchisor to businesses that may not be performing to expectations.
As well as implementing Business Financial Controls for each franchisee we will deliver comparison reports from across the franchise enterprise to the franchisor to ensure that pro-active investigation and remedial action can be quickly taken to protect the brand.
We will also help to address the need to finance new product development required to capture new markets and streamline costs.
Management Accounts Pack
It is important for businesses that are growing, or at a size where control is required to be up to date with both your business performance and the financial position your business is in. We have created a Management Accounts Demo pack which allows you to explore the level of reporting we can provide.

Finding a franchise accountant that understands your specific compliance needs is very important. We can help you by making sure accounts are prepared in the correct format, statutory books and other company secretarial records are kept up-to-date and that all statutory returns are prepared. We will ensure that VAT compliance, HMRC and national insurance registration, and appropriate tax returns are correctly filed. Our experienced team will relieve you of the regulatory burden giving you more time to concentrate on your core business. For more info please visit our Compliance Services page.
Budgeting and Reporting
Onyx can provide monthly or quarterly reporting packages tailored to your business which will allow you to better measure your profit margins and losses at that specific point in time which will give you a higher level of financial control and understanding of the long-term cash needs of the business.
