Financial restructuring your business in British Columbia.

Today’s social and economic events bring unique challenges to business owners in the Fraser Valley.  Corporate and small businesses in many sectors are seeing monumental changes that can lead to instability to their business models. Challenges in the news recently:

  • Retailers are struggling with high rent and lower sales, high wages and competing daily with online retailers.
  • Governing bodies are raising minimum wage.
  • Restaurant, hospitality and food service industries are frantically dealing with HR issues, lack of qualified cooks, servers and staff to keep a high quality of service.

Management, owners and good leaders understand when it is time to change strategies and take proactive measures to adjust the business. Financial restructuring or re-positioning your business should be done in parallel to other changes such as relocation, re-branding, product or process changes and HR changes.
