How to start doing Business with us!
Now that you have happily traveled around
our website, trying out our business tools and learning more about
business analysis and planning, you may decide you want The Business
Solutions Shop to help you improve your business performance.
This page will briefly explain what you need to do to engage The Business
Solutions Shop to address issues or problems from which you feel your
business may be suffering.
You need to be aware that we do have a few
business rules we abide by BEFORE we agree to take on any client.
The complete detail regarding our
Terms & Conditions of Engagement are covered
at length, separately. However, to simplify your decision whether
or not to engage us, you need to be aware of the following rules:
We do not give free
business advice, comments or consultations on the phone or via email to
individuals or companies who are not existing clients.
To initiate contact, you need to
provide The Business
Solutions Shop with an accurate, three-year
Profit and Loss and Balance Sheet report. If you cannot
provide this, the minimum we will consider responding to regarding your current company
performance, will be the audited P & L from your last full year of trading! This
is simply to enable us to assess your current business performance and
provide meaningful commercial feedback to you during your free one-hour
pre-engagement meeting with our Business "Doctor". No
information - no engagement!
All client work will
require a written document (detailed in section B.2 of our stated
& Conditions of Engagement) that outlines areas of concern, current performance, an
agreed approach or project plan and a likely or desired outcome for the
ALL projects and work will require an advance payment of 25%
of the agreed or projected cost of the job.
If you find these terms and conditions of
business difficult or unacceptable, we apologise, but The Business
Solutions Shop is probably not your best "first port of call".
