Businesses We Work With

  • Music & Entertainment

We help promoters, musicians and event organisers make the most out of their tour and recording budgets. Say goodbye to endless spreadsheets and open the door to new solutions. Go beyond daily financial tracking by receiving forecasts, budgets and advice on the best ways to allocate funds during and between tours.

  • Seasonal Cash Flow

We help businesses with seasonal cash flow manage their finances so they can stay afloat during peak and off peak seasons. From festival organisers to local trades with seasonal services, we can help with all elements of cash management and analysis.

  • Established & Growing Fast

You’re probably operating a business earning a comfortable income, yet at the end of every month, it seems like there’s never enough to spare. We can help you gain more control and visibility over what’s happening in your business so you can manage cash flow as best as possible.

Know Your Numbers With Confidence

For most business owners, digging into the financial data of their business takes too much time, skill and effort, all of which it seems they are running short on. Financial reporting is often neglected in favour of operational and marketing tasks.

We hate to break it to you, but cash is the lifeblood of your business. Without it, your business can go bust in no time.

Managing cash flow can be a real headache if you’re not a numbers person or if your attention needs to be in other areas of the business though.

And between us, your business deserves better that a half-focused attempt at financial reporting every once in a blue moon. So give it the chance to thrive while also releasing one of your biggest headaches.

Our Virtual CFO services are purpose driven for business owners just like you. If you have an established business that’s pushing traditional bookkeeping to its limits yet is too small to have an internal finance team, Virtual CFO is the perfect middle ground.

Virtual CFO Services in Melbourne

Go beyond traditional bookkeeping with our Virtual CFO services. Managing the life blood of your business takes time and skill. With our experts by your side, you’ll have both.

We offer a range of services that extend beyond the traditional bookkeeping services you’ll generally find. With decades of corporate financial experience and training behind us, we make big business financial tools and strategies accessible by small to medium businesses at a fraction of the price.

  • Financial Reporting

As a business owner, it’s vital you understand what’s happening in your business. Whether it’s looking at your profit and loss or daily cash flow pattern, financial reports will show you what’s really going on under the hood.

We’ll deliver all the reports and charts you need to manage your finances in the most optimal way. Have the raw data to back your financial decisions so you can drive your business forward with confidence that it’s growing sustainably.

  • Strategic Financial & Cash Management

Whether it’s general budgeting advice or a strategy to manage finances during off-peak season, we combine the best in technology and financial advisory services to take you to the next level.

For clients in the music and entertainment industries, or other businesses where cash flow is seasonal, we craft a strategy to ensure available funds tide you through the low season.

For established businesses that are looking to grow sustainably, we help you budget with growth in mind. Growing too fast can put a big strain on your business and quickly chew through essential funds needed for operations.

In either situation, we have your back and can help you meet your business goals through strategic financial and cash management.

  • Cash Flow Forecasting

Need to know how much cash you will have available in future? Projecting cash flows is not as easy as it may seem. There are so many factors at play that it can be easy to miscalculate.

With years of experience in global management accounting behind us, we have honed in on our skill of forecasting cash flow and assisting businesses with making critical financial decisions ahead of time.

With our expertise on your side, you’ll avoid the inevitable crash and burn that comes when you miscalculate. You’ll also be able to keep your business moving forward by proactively making safe financial decisions earlier.

  • Cash Flow Analysis

Cash flow analysis can be as dry as it sounds. That’s why it’s no surprise that few of our clients bother with it in the midst of daily operations.

It’s likely your business also falls in this category. If you find that no one in your business really has the time or skill to properly analyse the pattern of how money flows in and out of the business, then it’s likely you’re missing out.

Strategic cash flow analysis can help you manage the daily operations and expenditure of the business in a way that also supports sustainable growth.

  • Streamline Processes

When you have access to high level financial data, you can identify processes that are leaking your valuable cash flow. We can help you streamline your processes and tighten your operations.

We can also advise on how to automate financial processes to save you time across the board. Handling receipts, payslips and rosters has never been easier. By exploring the opportunity that the latest, cutting-edge technology offers to businesses in all industries, you could find yourself saving more time and money than you realise.

  • Data-Driven Financial Risk Management

Higher level, strategic reporting may sound like something only big businesses need, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Taking a step back from the day to day numbers and looking at the trends and patterns of how your business manages finances can help you avoid a number of risks.

If your business is established yet still growing, you’ve likely felt the strain a poor financial decision can place on the business. It can be hard to bounce back from one wrong move.

That’s where financial risk management can help. Our team will dig deep into the data and advise on strategies to avoid financial risks your business may not be able to bounce back from.

  • Setting up Accounting Software

There are a large range of cloud based accounting software solutions available, which can all be very powerful and have been designed to save business owners time, money and resources.  However, they can also become one of the most time consuming, confusing and useless platforms if they’re not setup correctly.

Regardless of whether you, or your accountant have decided to implement Xero, MYOB, Quickbooks or another accounting software – Insight Business Solutions will be able to help with your accounting software setup, and help you understand how to get the most out of your platform.

Outside of providing ongoing bookkeeping services to our established clients across Melbourne, we also work with businesses to setup their accounting software. This can include setting up your chart of accounts, general ledger codes, invoice templates and payroll reports, as well as initial training.
