Much has been spoken about the economic downturn that has come as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. In our opinion, the key to operating a successful business and making money in an economic downturn or recession is to know where your business performs well and where it can improve.

The ‘signs’ of a healthy business are sustainable profits and strong trading cash flows. Whereas, the ‘symptoms’ of a business underperforming and at risk of being ‘infected’ by a recession or downturn, include declining sales and high fixed costs.

People who care about their health visit an expert – their Doctor. Business owners who care about their business should similarly visit an expert – their Business Adviser to complete a business health check.

If you haven’t felt the impact of COVID-19, all the better as prevention is better than cure!

To ensure your business remains healthy and continues to prosper in these uncertain times, you should undertake a business health check to protect your business from the full effects of a potential recession and better prepare you for recovery. MGI South Queensland can assist you with a business valuation and evaluation technology which includes a Risk and Value Driver Assessment Questionnaire.

The Questionnaire acts like a health check and grades your business in terms of its risk and pinpoints opportunities for value improvements.

Below is a sample of the many topics covered in the Questionnaire:
