Most SME business owners often see financial statements as merely compliance, and overlook the importance of using financial data to analyse the health of their business. With over 20 years’ insolvency experience, Shabnam Amirbeaggi continues to see too many businesses fail unnecessarily as a result of lack of understanding by the business owner of the financial data readily available to them. Imagine how useful a set of financial statements accompanied with health-check identifiers would be to a business owner. In this session we will explore the 3 most common methods of analysing financial statements to identify some of the early warning signs of distress.
