We empower our clients with the right tools to improve their decision making

At Ravit Insights, we are experts in developing highly scalable, dynamic, threeway integrated financial models, so that you can focus on what ’s important – strategic decision making, forward planning and execution.

Who We’ve Worked With

Our Services

Don’t worry if what you are looking for is not listed below. Ultimately, what we do is help businesses make informed decisions. Get in touch with us for a free consultation and we can discuss your needs. 

Debt Advisory

If you are applying for a commercial loan from the bank, and they are asking for information you’re not familiar with (cash flow or three-way forecasts), chances are that you are finding it difficult to obtain loan approval.

We work with businesses to prepare the financial information often required by banks. This can help smooth the application process and improves the chance of obtaining a commercial loan.

Maximising Business Value

If you’ve considered selling your business, you may be looking to maximise the sale price.

We provide businesses with performance and efficiency insights to help improve the value of the business.

Project Feasibility

If your business is deciding whether to proceed with a project (e.g. commercial developments, new business product lines, expansion into new markets etc.), you may be asking whether it is worth the time, effort and money.

To help make informed choices, we assist businesses with understanding the financial implications of these potential decisions.

Cash Flow Insights

If your business is profitable but you constantly request to overdraw bank accounts, receive calls about overdue payments or pay excessive interest on overdrafts, you may have cash flow issues.

We help to identify and address potential cash flow gaps, so that businesses can reduce the occurrence of such stressful situations.

Happy new year and welcome to 2020!

Before I start, I’d like to draw attention to the fact that while most of us are celebrating the new year, the country’s serious bush fire crisis is ongoing. I wish all the firefighters and other emergency services well and thank you all for your service. We encourage everyone to join us in a show of support by donating, no matter how big or small, to help support and provide some relief to these brave volunteers.

2019 in review…

When I started this venture back in 2017, I set out on a new challenge, and it was an exciting time.

Three years on, the excitement remains, but for vastly different reasons. In the three years since, there has been significant changes to the business with lots of learning and experiences – both highs and lows.

’tis the season – so is your business prepared?

For most Australians December is either a time where your foot is flat to the floor, or you’re winding down and focusing on the next end of year lunch.

Knowing which camp you fit into is vital for all Australian small and medium businesses.

For the gelato store near St Kilda beach in Melbourne a warm summer with more tourists and beach days can make their business profitable for the entire year, even through the dark days of winter. The same goes for the retail stores, which despite declining economic environment, often rely on a very busy Christmas to buoy their annual turnover.

However, for others, like consulting firms or those in financial services, December signals a time to wind down. Often businesses will really slow down over late December and early January, with some taking a much needed break.

Whichever camp, or another, you’re in, it is important to understand how seasonality will affect you.

Why growth is bad for your bank balance

Growth is good. But it comes with big challenges.

With the hype in the startup world, growth, in the form of a mythical hockey stick, has become one of the much vaunted and sought after business metrics.

As we frequently see reported globally, the highest growth and highest valued technology startups are rarely profit or cash flow positive – think Uber and WeWork.

What that means for the majority of business owners, is that balancing growth with cash flow or capital needs is one of the key operational challenges.

It’s probably what you’ll lose sleep over (if this is you, take a breath and fill out our growth early warning signs check list).

Don’t listen to billionaires — they don’t understand your business

When we started Ravit Insights, we followed advice from billionaires and industry experts by putting ourselves in front of potential clients and this is what it got us: radio silence. The truth is, billionaires and experts don’t have a full understanding of our company, and they don’t have a full view of yours either — despite what they would have you believe on LinkedIn and Instagram.

They got to their high level of success over a long period of time, and they’ve probably forgotten half of what they’ve done to get there.

The mistake we made was taking their words at face value rather than thinking for ourselves. Following their advice, we priced our solution too high, and we didn’t go anywhere. Instead, we needed to educate ourselves and find people who truly understood what we were trying to achieve and at what scale and pace.

We could have had a lot more clients if we had ignored the experts and trusted our gut straight away. This is the advice we wished we had been given two years ago.
