Rachel has worked with TGPC since 2014. She keeps the Property Business bookkeeping show on the road. We are lucky to have her.
She cycles in on a Wednesday morning and she makes sure the bills are paid! Her focus is to ensure all of TGPC’s limited companies and Susannah’s personal portfolio accounts are up to date mid-week, every week.
This is a great help.
As a result it means that within 10 days of the month end, the TGPC finance and management team can identify financial patterns. This is either great news – and to be encouraged…Or patterns that need to be stopped, fast! Most of all, it is all good work which support the professional and financial development of TGPC.
Business Planning, great financial management and strong KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) are super important in any business, and especially important in a property business. This is because property costs are large, when things go wrong it can be expensive, and property is often not a liquid business, being an asset investment.
So wether you are a sizeable scaled up team, or operating as a one man or one woman band, it is super important that you have a great Business Plan, measure your perfomance, and improve regularly, so succeed. We have written a fab Business Planning Pack for you to download immediately, to help you succeed in property.
Online Accounting System
We use Xero, which is an online accounting system. This means that in real time Susie can check the status of each of her businesses. The team can check against a number of pre-determined reports, as well as the preceding year and the planned financial activities. This allows us to see what has changed and what action the team need to take. A great overview for any company or property business.
Rachel also works with our Investors, to work on the accounting side of the Property Projects we do. This means that she ensures we have strong financial visibility and management on each Buy to Sell Project we deliver.
Rachel is a stable and measured influence and tries hard to look Susie in the eye and reprimand her for buying too many properties, which is a hard habit to break!
She is a keen hockey player and can occasionally be spotted in the dark with her bright (and fab) wardrobe. Rachel is a great person to work with, cycling in for her Wednesday sessions with the crew.
