FINANCIAL ADVISORY

 

We offer different types of financial consultation services. Some of the services are:

BUSINESS MODEL ANALYSIS

Business model analysis predicts the cash flow and profitability of the business model in the market. The analysis reveals the volume of investments, potential business strategies (product/service, marketing, sales, business processes), and the valuation of the company based on estimated cash flow.

 

DRAFTING BUSINESS PLANS

Creating business plans is necessary to use different financing options, attract investors, or evaluate the profitability of the business model.

 

The business plan must clearly state what is being done and how to reach the goal. Creating a business plan will help you think through the steps involved in starting a business. This reduces the risk of business failure as fewer unexpected events occur. The business plan must be realistic, i.e. the objective must be achievable, all the necessary costs must be taken into account, and the profit forecast must be based on the results of an analysis (market study). A correct business plan is a prerequisite for applying for project funding through various support programmes. On the basis of the business plan, the potential investor will also decide whether or not they are willing to finance the venture. One must also be aware of the potential risks and anticipate ways to manage them.

 

We prepare business plans for our clients. If you are interested, please send your enquiry via the enquiry form at the bottom of the page.

 

BUSINESS EVALUATION

A business valuation is a general process of determining the economic value of a whole business or company unit. Business valuation can be used to determine the fair value of a business for a variety of reasons, including sale value, establishing partner ownership, taxation, and even divorce proceedings.

Owners will often turn to professional business evaluators for an objective estimate of the value of the business. We provide a business valuation service. If interested, submit your request via the enquiry form at the bottom of the page.

 

PROVIDING CONSULTATION RELATED TO CROWDFUNDING

Crowdfunding has evolved over the last decade into a new method of financing, whereby the funds needed for investment are obtained from a relatively large number of people (ordinary people, investors, entrepreneurs) by collecting relatively small amounts from those people. Due to the rather inexpensive and simple structure of the campaign, crowdfunding is one of the easiest ways to raise additional funds. In addition to financial benefits, crowdfunding has non-monetary benefits such as proving and verifying an idea in front of the public and the campaign is also a powerful marketing tool.

 

Our team is experienced in raising money from the public and we provide our clients with relevant services. If interested, submit your request via the enquiry form at the bottom of the page.

 

CONSULTATION REGARDING BANK LOANS

There are several ways to finance investments or activities in Estonia. One of them is loans from different credit institutions. We help our clients to find the best possible financing solutions in Estonia based on the company’s profile and the object of financing. If interested, submit your request via the enquiry form at the bottom of the page.

 

SHAREHOLDERS AGREEMENTS’

If the company is owned by more than one person, it is prudent to regulate the shareholder relationship through a shareholder agreement. A shareholder agreement is not a public document such as the articles of association. Therefore, we encourage our clients to regulate shareholder relationships to avoid disagreements and litigation.

As shareholder agreements have no corporate effect, the articles of association may lay down objective and verifiable terms. Therefore, we suggest to compose tailor-made articles of association and shareholder agreement.

 

 

LITIGATIONS

We have in-house competence to represent our clients in case of litigation in court. In order to avoid court litigation, we advise you to prevent the situation and to ask for our legal advice. Disagreements can be resolved with the help of a lawyer and mediator.
