Welgaard’s Financial Advisory Services and Business Services

Business Development Services and Problem Solving

At Welgaard, we understand that no one knows your business like you do. When you come to us for business development services, our professionals will help you evaluate your unique business and create a strategic plan to achieve growth and success. We will listen to you, learn your business and use our expertise to help you achieve your business goals. You will find our business plan consultants are excellent critical thinkers and problem solvers.

Starting a New Business

Starting a new business on the right path is crucial to long term success. According to the U.S Small Business Administration, half of small businesses fail within the first five years, and the most cited reasons are lack of experience, insufficient capital and poor financial management.

If you are starting a business, Welgaard can provide insights and offer critical business development services to get your business started off on the right foot. Our business plan consultants can help you select the appropriate organizational structure, make the proper elections and help to secure adequate financing.

Our staff will partner with you to build a strategy for successful financial management, including selecting the best accounting system for you, providing training and arranging periodic reviews of your financial statements to ensure accuracy and effectiveness.

Enabling Established Business Growth

Successful, well established businesses are continually striving for opportunities to manage their businesses more effectively and profitably. Our team can work with you to develop a strategic plan for your established business, based on your situation and needs. We will work with you through all your business needs, including investment reviews, loan applications, pricing, credit policies, cash flow, cost controls, sales and acquisitions and your other business challenges.

We prepare compiled and reviewed financial statements. And most importantly—we can help you use your statements to manage your business more effectively and profitably.

Outsourced CFO Services

Welgaard’s experienced accounting team members can provide professional financial advice for growing businesses who don’t need a CFO yet, or small to medium sized established businesses who don’t need a CFO on site every day. Welgaard’s outsourced CFO services help you focus on forecasts, budgets, KPIs, goals and regular meetings. This is an opportunity for you to benefit from our teams’ extensive experience. Let us assist you with your finances and taxes, so you can focus on running your business.

Business Succession Planning

We know your business is your livelihood and your most valuable asset. Welgaad’s business succession planning services can help you organize and secure the future of your business. Whether you’re planning to pass your business down to the next generation, selling to a key employee or selling to an external party, our team will ensure you pass on your business in a tax efficient manner.

A solid, long-term succession plan can drive the growth of a business and help meet personal and business goals. Partner with Welgaard to help develop your succession plan and answer any questions you may have.
