AAA Consulting business support extends beyond the extensive library of information. Our professional people – who have walked a mile in your shoes – are ready to help.
We cover everything from strategy formation to action execution and will help with business planning, reshaping, growth strategies, diversification plans, financial budgeting, 3-way cash-flows, business performance monitoring and helping with your people challenges.
We have self-help programs, online training, frameworks, documentation and personal support. Whatever your preference, we have it covered.
Your Money Your Future
From budgets to cash flows, financial modelling is the foundation of your business’s success. Such tools are too often used only for lending and accounting purposes, or when things go wrong. Your business will be more effective using cashflow budgets and monthly budget reviews. The team at AAA Consulting helps businesses understand the financial drivers of their business and makes key influences visible at the right times by providing the tools and support to fast-track personal and business success.
At a personal level, the rules for home loan applications have changed and now people searching for these loans are responsible for demonstrating they can structure their personal spending to service the lending. AAA Consulting can take that headache and turn it back into the dream of your next home or holiday. We have the knowledge and tools to help you monitor your personal spending and set your goals. This will satisfy lenders so they make the decision you want – approving a mortgage or loan to allow you to achieve your goals.
Having a plan is essential to personal and business life and a business plan is a great place to start. We offer you the level of support you require to create a plan and act on it with clarity and purpose.
AAA Consulting offers different support packages to suit your needs. These range from full monthly financial services to the provision of templates for your own use.

Business Resilience and Benchmarking
Undertaking a business planning process will help you identify the strengths and weaknesses that exist in your business and ways that you can mitigate risks and maximise the potential of opportunities. This knowledge will help build resilience.
Throughout the resilience planning process, you can prepare for scenarios so that you know what to do when situations arise and you will have the resources and connections available to act. This will reduce stress and anxiety in times of challenge and allow you to think clearly and respond to situations rather than react.
To identify the strengths and opportunities for your business, you need to assess your performance against industry benchmarks. Knowing how you compare with competitors in various aspects of your business will enable you to make informed decisions and prioritise strategies and tasks. It will also help you to discover and focus on what makes you different from the competition in the always important eye of the customer.
AAA Consulting has employed industry-leading benchmark comparison tools for your benefit. The benchmarking software used by our team of consultants will analyse and compare your business’s performance against hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of related Australian businesses. This information is used to generate a comprehensive benchmarking and business value report which will give you insight for:
Identification and implementation of relevant Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to manage:
- Productivity indicators
- Business profitability
- Plant & equipment return on investment (ROI)
- Cash-flow planning
Depending on the level of support you choose, AAA Consulting consultants can review this for you regularly. Partner with AAA Consulting today and discover where you need to focus to improve your share of the market and answer important questions regarding the profitability and efficiency of your business.
How well do you know the growing needs of your business? For most, this is a difficult question to answer when busy keeping up with day-to-day needs. However, ‘failing to plan is planning to fail’. In all industries and businesses, evaluation and planning will allow you to:
- Discover the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for your business
- Understand the market drivers – simply writing down what you know in a framework model can reveal insight
- Ensure that your business takes advantage of the evolving economic and technological environments
- Progress with your financing needs
- Prioritise short and long term growth strategies
Planning will develop your ability to involve others in your business, which will gain their engagement and encourage ownership of responsibilities and accountability. When you establish routines to meet with your people and manage the performance of your business, you will be able to identify issues very early and encourage innovative solutions, adaptability and agility to become a resilient business that is truly sustainable. Regularly monitoring, reviewing and updating your plans will keep your business thriving.
AAA Consulting’s resources equip their business partners with the tools to understand the industry they are in and grow their business. We understand that putting pen to paper can seem like a daunting process, so our team of consultants is available to help you through the process by guiding, coaching and sharing expertise.

Property and Asset Management
The team at AAA Consulting has seen thousands of different ways that businesses track their asset and property management. From notepads to spreadsheets, we all have a method that works. To share this information with others, however, we need to describe our asset, valuation and projections clearly.
Over many years of working with lenders and other professional industries, the team at AAA Consulting has developed a number of structured asset and property management tools to suit businesses of all types, benefiting business owners by producing one set of information that provides the necessary data for all uses.
Contracting to other entities presents risks to businesses by having plant and equipment based in and on others’ property: theft, damage and impounding are only a few. AAA Consulting and its network of partners can review your risk exposure, ensure you have sufficient insurance cover in place and provide support in obtaining PPSR, to protect against the risk from others.

Most Australian businesses have a combination of casual, part-, and full-time employees and rarely review employment arrangements in relation to relevant awards, or fully document their policies, expectations and training. This could prove costly in the event that your workplace faces adversity. The team at AAA Consulting urges you to consider whether your existing employment contracts effectively cover:
- Changing Fair Work compliance requirements
- Management of workplace dispute resolution
- Workplace health and safety requirements
- Legislation and industry practices
- Specific workplace conditions
AAA Consuling has partnered with the team at Employsure to help you manage these situations. Employsure will provide you with professional advice, representation, and protection for all of your workplace needs. All employment contracts available through AAA Consulting are monitored and kept up-to-date by the Employsure team. This ensures we are promoting best practice and employment protection in relation to Fair Work and workplace health and safety.
Empowering your staff with responsibility and encouraging them to contribute ideas and recommendations for the business will give them a sense of ownership of their work. You can also improve employee engagement by fostering a sense of belonging through social events outside the workplace and having fun at work. Happy staff makes for happy customers!

Grants and Subsidies
The need for Grants and Subsidies is a reality of conducting business in Australia. With new support packages becoming available almost every month and some being discontinued earlier than originally stated, keeping up with the latest and most relevant information is time-consuming and disheartening.
Businesses that have been impacted by a natural disaster would understand the hopeless feeling of navigating through disaster assistance claims. Which grant or subsidy is right for my business? Is my business eligible for support? What supporting information is required? These are questions you may face in the unfortunate event that you become affected.
With sophisticated and intuitive software, AAA Consulting can sort through 600 to 700 Federal and State based current grants and subsidies to identify which are most likely to apply to your situation. This will save you hours of time each month! Allow us to find you the right grant or subsidy, and remove the frustration of you sifting through website after website of confusing information.
The team at AAA Consulting are well-practiced in the application process for support claims. We also regularly conduct research to ensure we are aware of changes to new and existing support criteria. We can provide you with tailored support to collate the necessary information and lodge your application in a timely manner, to maximise your chances of receiving a positive outcome.
Support is only a phone call away for the trusting partners of AAA Consulting.
