About Us

Pretium Solutions is the result of Paul’s distinguished career as a Fellow Chartered Accountant, and his passion for seeing small businesses thrive and succeed.

Many small businesses feel ambition and exponential growth are only for big companies, but they couldn’t be more wrong. With the right coaching, consulting, and strategising for both the short and long term, your start-up or small business can achieve the success you’ve envisioned. At Pretium Solutions, we employ three objectives to help you do this.

First, we help you identify your business and financial goals. Then we guide you in finding the overlap between them. We want to turn your aspirations into reality. To accomplish that, they need to be aligned with your bottom line so you can execute flawlessly.

Our second pillar of service helps you realise your financial goals by transforming efficiency into profitability. We offer straightforward, cost-effective resources and solutions that are customised to your unique business needs. When you work with seamless integrations, fewer redundancies, and the proper internal checks, you can streamline your business processes, reduce waste, and increase gains.

Finally, we give you the financial fluency you need to go from start-up to industry authority. Pretium Solutions understands that many small businesses need extra assistance in the beginning. As you grow and take on more in-house staff, we offer the training and development necessary for employees to understand your financial figures. We can take on as much or as little accounting work as you desire, with the end goal of forward-focused financial management and planning that lets you achieve the changes you’ve set as your target.

“Our aim is to provide business owners with the knowledge and resources to feel confident and better equipped to accomplish their goals and savour the rewards they have always wanted to enjoy.”

How we work with you

We work in a close and deeply collaborative manner with all our clients. However, before we can optimise your business systems and processes, we need to understand your business as a whole, including your management approach, business culture, ambitions and strategy.

What we really want to know is all about you

We want to know what’s really important. What your business means to you. Things like:

  • Why did you go into business in the first place? What did you hope to achieve?
  • What’s not working for you at the moment?
  • Is the business preventing you from have the freedom to enjoy the things that really matter to you?

Once we know what you want your business to look like, we’ll work together to map out a plan to transform your business from where it is now, to where it needs to be.

Our approach isn’t simply a matter of sitting back and telling you what to do. We work with you to establish your scope, objectives and milestones, guiding you through the implementation of key action items.

About Us 03

Progress means nothing unless you can prove it

We closely monitor and report on the effects of every new strategy we implement, to make sure it’s having the desired outcome. If targets aren’t being met, we zero in on what needs to be adjusted. Detailed reporting is a key part of implementing strategy, essential for staying focused, identifying issues that may have previously been overlooked and coming up with achievable, practical goals.

Dealing with change

Circumstances change. Business is affected by economic, social, environmental and market conditions, as well as you and your team’s personal situations. Every strategy we help you to implement is continuously reviewed and assessed by us. If necessary, we’ll modify a strategy or goal to ensure things continue to perform optimally, even when a change occurs that affects the way your business operates.
