Specialist Services

To be a growth catalyst, we must empower our leaders and organisations to execute our strategies in the most efficient way possible. At Auctus, we provide a range of specialist services to help you on your business journey.

vCFO

Virtual Chief Financial Officer (vCFO) gives startup and small businesses the same possibilities as their larger competitors. We understand that the growth of NZ businesses affects more than the business – it is the growth of the family and personal lives of business owners. Having a mature inhouse finance function is a luxury that many businesses cannot afford, often leaving the business owner chewing up valuable time on finance and accounting operations. Limited time and often a lack of financial acumen results in tasks being done simply to ‘tick the box’.

Don’t just tick the box. Choose Auctus as your strategic partner to add value-driven analytics, allowing you to implement proactive decision making. We can custom build a plan to strengthen the way your back-office processes and reporting operates, leaving your business with a strong and contributing finance function. This plan will include expanding your financial understanding through regular reporting and discussions with our team.

Property & Construction

The challenges that property and construction business owners face are unique. We understand that. As an owner you want to be sure that you’re on the right track with your business decisions when undertaking large projects. It’s crucial to be backed by a team that understands you and your business inside and out.

Our Senior Advisors have a solid foundation of experience in the property and construction space. As part of our role a business advisor, our team will meet with you regularly to discuss industry trends and possible risks and will develop strategies on how you can best respond to them. We will seek to understand every aspect of your business, so we can offer proactive advice and help you to take advantage of opportunities. We understand the phases in the industry, and we’re active in helping our clients plan and respond to these including Brightline support & assistance.

Mergers & Acquisitions

There are several scenarios in which you might wish to attain a business enterprise. Whatever the situation, we can minimise the stress in the process and maximise the opportunity for you. Are you getting a good deal? Is the business right for you? Can you afford it? Have all avenues for future growth been investigated? The services we provide incorporate every stage of the process, from identifying potential acquisitions and negotiating the commercial elements of the transaction, to forecasting the future of the business. What can we help with?

  • A review of your goals and objectives
  • Due diligence services
  • Preparation of financial forecasts
  • Advice on potential pitfalls and rewards involved in a merger
  • Assistance with purchase negotiations
  • Advice on financing

Cloud Solutions

Digital tools and apps are the way of the future – and we’re happy to say, we’re already there.

When we walk a mile in your shoes, we get the inside information on how you work, your pressure points and insight into what has happened in the past, and what’s happening now.

We know it can be confusing, but if you want to save time, have a life outside of paperwork and be smart with your business then start uploading, downloading, and installing! We’ll transform how you access your data and make sure you’re getting the best from the tools you use.
