Determine your fixed costs in 60 minutes

Are you the manager or owner of a retail business or hospitality establishment? Are you finding it difficult to calculate your fixed costs and is it impacting your margin?  Attend the “Determine your fixed costs” coaching session and track your organisation’s superfluous expenses.

Fixed costs are those expenses which must be paid every month and can amount to substantial sums. Given that your revenue is based on your sales and that they are for the most part linked to your variable costs, i.e. your raw materials purchases, it’s easy to understand why you can’t let your margin be eaten away by unsuitable fixed costs. How can you recalculate them? The answer in 60 minutes.

Calculate your business’ fixed costs in just 60 minutes!

We will achieve the following together in an hour:

  • a mini-auditof your business and of its financial coherence (fixed costs, financial expenses, contracts in progress, wage bill, etc.)
  • identify what can be improved and what must change
  • Make the adjustments necessary for better performance and/or greater consistency with the market
