Greater insights into industry trends:

Understanding what is driving industry-wide performance can dramatically improve business growth. Our industry reports focus on analysing trends and addressing what may impact growth or decline over the next 3-5 years. This is particularly important for businesses that are focused on revenue and profit growth; or minimising losses.

Estimated the value of your business:

Using the capitalisation of profits method, our Benchmark Report provides you with a fair market value for your business. This can help you with either growth opportunities or exit strategies. Further, knowing the value of your business can support in making business decisions such as: whether to invest in capital purchases, to grow or reduce employment and/or to invest in growth or focus on consolidation.

Access to the ATO Small Business Benchmark assessment tool:

The Australia Tax Office (ATO) undertake high level business benchmarking each year so they can both gather important data and identify businesses for audits. With our benchmarking software, you can assess if your business fits into the ATO benchmark requirements before you submit your tax return and activity statements. This can support business owners to address any errors, or adjust high expenses claimed if required. Find out more about the ATO Small Business Benchmarks.

Year on year business reviews:

Businesses who utilise our system on an annual basis can track both financial performance and benchmarking performance. Whilst tracking financials are important, with annual benchmarking, you can review how you are performing compared to thousands of other similar businesses. This provides owners with a complete performance review and can support you in making strategic decisions.

Ongoing support and resources:

Our Team are always here to help. We offer support in data uploads as well as provide you with a vast range of business resources and tools.
