"Deciding to work with Spot On Business Planning has been, without doubt, the best business decision we have made during 20 years of owning our own practice,We have worked with...” Spot On Business Planning since 2011 and right from the start we were impressed with their experienced team and the systems and strategies they use.Initially, the goals and projections that Andy McDougall set for us seemed unrealistic and unachievable but we committed fully to the process and began to meet and exceed those targets year on year.In the early stages, Spot On Business Planning were always on hand to guide us through the changes we were making but nowadays as we don’t need such close support, I have a Zoom video conference with Andy every month. This involves commentary and feedback about the monthly figures. We can both see the same spreadsheets on the screen at the same time so it’s a useful way of catching up without needing to travel to a meeting. I look forward to these meetings for the reassurance they give me.I have found that having Spot On Business Planning onboard has taken away a lot of the stress associated with running a practice because I feel more in control and well supported. SOBP has an excellent extended family of other professionals including financial advisers, accountants and tax planners who have helped us through changes, including incorporation, and will help us restructure further in the future as we plan our exit.Deciding to work with Spot On Business Planning has been, without doubt, the best business decision we have made during 20 years of owning our own practice. I would not hesitate to recommend Andy and the team at Spot On Business Planning to anyone looking to get to grips with their business and their profit."

"Spot On Business Planning really care about what they do and the people they work with - they are fab and I’m really grateful for their supportWe had a lack...” of understanding of the financial aspects of our business and planning for the future and decided we really had to do something! A conversation with fellow dentist Andrew Chandrapal from Bourne End Dental led us to Andy McDougall at Spot On Business Planning.Andy carried out a free analysis of my dental practice and looked at the last 3 years of our financial accounts, which he analysed and then explained the strengths and weaknesses he read in our numbers.The process I have been undergoing since 2016 with SOBP is excellent, very comprehensive and thorough. One of the first exercises we did was to input all the costings of products and materials and this gave me a real insight to my running costs – and that made a huge difference.The whole process means I now understand the financial implications of the decisions I make, for example, equipment purchases, as well as any aspects of dentistry that we take for granted, such as the implications of discounts.I now have a much better understanding of the impact of the numbers when making planning decisions and this means I can be more strategic.What I really like about working with SOBP is their attention to detail and their passion. They really care about what they do and the people they work with. I would absolutely recommend their services."
