People first, then money, then things..

We put people first at Cherry Black. We do this because there’s much more on the line than simple numbers. We appreciate the hopes and dreams you have invested in your business.

When you deal with Cherry Back, you’ll find Knowledge and Interpretation are two key things we pride ourselves on. Being ‘in the know’ gives you many advantages, including making fully informed decisions. Good decisions now will set you, and your business, on a path where any stress around numbers evaporates because you are in control, not the other way round.

Interpreting numbers means understanding more than what’s on the page. As we share our experiences and insights, we positively contribute to the betterment of your business (and the quality of the life you lead). As we focus on your numbers, our eye turns to the Future (not simply the past, as other accountants may), where we help identify opportunities and potential threats. By understanding these, and other factors, you are best positioned to build your business.
 

Cherry Black will help your business grow
 

We’re focused on helping you better understand Business. In the time we’ve been building businesses, we’ve seen people start with talent and passion for what they do. We’ve also seen people start with a burning desire to add to an industry, to drive it forward. Yet, in both situations people often lack the necessary business acumen to take full advantage of their idea. We get it. Starting something new is a learning process involving learning new skills and gaining fresh insights. It’s our role to help.

With Cherry Black, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of topics like:

  • Starting a business
  • How to keep proper records
  • Writing a business plan.

start-ups

Starting a business often begins with what we affectionately refer to as a “Martin Luther King Moment”. Like him, you “have a dream”. You’re enthused and motivated and are keen to set about achieving it. We applaud you. The task now is to put things in place to turn your Dream into Reality.

It’s important to start the way you want to continue, and hey, let’s be optimists, you’re preparing for success right? There are a few key things that need to be set in place from the outset so you’re in the best position to achieve. Having these under control also means you can focus on creating your dream, and not be distracted by behind the scenes necessities.

If you’re a Start-Up, we’ll work with you assisting with things like:

  • Business Structure
  • Business Registration
  • Business Planning
  • Insurances
  • Record Keeping
  • Protection of Assets
  • Getting Started
  • General Business Advice/how to avoid traps for young players
  • Feasibility Analysis.

If required, we can offer individual or group sessions tailored to your needs. We’ll also provide takeaway materials for you to review when you’re not with us.

If required, we can offer individual or group sessions tailored to your needs. We’ll also provide takeaway materials for you to review when you’re not with us.

 

 

mentoring

Someone wise once said, Amazing people do not just happen, it takes work.

In today’s result focussed - outcome driven world, sometimes it’s difficult to remember our actions are the product of what we know. Our behaviour is the result of knowledge our beliefs. We happens on the outside is a reflection of what we believe on the inside.

Cherry Black whole-heartedly believe in the power of Mentoring. So much so, it forms the basis of all our client relationships. Whether it’s a formal mentoring programme, or informal chats along the way, Cherry Black believe everyone benefits from having a sounding board and a trusted someone to turn to for advice. Our focus is to partner with you along the way, through the life cycles of your business.

 

 

our pro-bono work

Being a ‘people first’ organisation, Cherry Black do our best to constantly engage and acknowledge the human aspects of business. We’re super appreciative of the people and their businesses entrusted in our care. So, along with our belief in paying it forward, we also believe in giving back.
