Business plans formalise the goal of an organisation and, if they are prepared collaboratively or shared creatively, can engage teams and individuals in achieving those goals. But how realistic is the plan?
Financial models from WMT help you with:
Testing your plan on paper – before you commit resources to delivering it.
Forecasting – by using multiple data sources from across the business to predict financial outcomes such as production capacity and debtor days, to expected incomings and outgoings, plan future investments and predict shareholder returns.
Testing scenarios – such as how will your business finances be affected by opening or closing a site, acquiring a new business or increasing sales? This will help you choose between options.
Planning capital expenditure – your financial model will help you decide if the investment will be worthwhile for your business and when to time the investment.
Calculating the true cost of projects – by gathering data from multiple sources.
Fundraising or preparing to sell your business– a robust financial model, especially one you have worked with over a number of years, will give confidence to potential investors or buyers.
Mergers and acquisitions – estimating the performance of the new business.

Unlike tips paid by card or service charges, cash tips belong directly to the employee. It is up to staff – not the employer – to choose whether or not to pool and share those tips with colleagues or keep them to themselves. Forcing staff to share their tips can result in complaints and even lead to an employment tribunal.
All tips are taxable income. The question for your business is, do you have a responsibility to tax this money at source or is it down to employees to tell HMRC about their cash tips income? The answer depends on exactly what happens to the cash and what systems may or may not be in place, even informally.
HMRC will always try to collect the tax on cash tips directly from businesses, so it’s important that you understand what can and cannot happen to cash tips without any legal responsibilities falling on you.
Hospitality specialists at WMT will help you understand the complicated rules surrounding cash tips, so you can make sure they are dealt with in a way that limits the likelihood of staff complaints and HMRC enquiries.
