What is Business Simplification and Corporate Streamlining?


Insolvency Practitioner Approved

Understanding company simplification and streamlining

Limited companies, particularly those which have experienced a noticeable period of growth either organically or via a series of acquisitions, can become burdened over time by an overly complex operating structure which can not only limit efficiency, but can also come with a serious financial cost.

When a company’s structure threatens to impede its operations, as well as its finances, it may be time to consider undergoing a process of business simplification to streamline its affairs, remove unnecessary layers of management, and boost performance.

Understanding business simplification

Business simplification is a restructuring process which aims to highlight non-performing elements of the company, refinance existing debt, or shed unnecessary levels of complexity, in order to make the company run smoother, operate more efficiently, all while reducing financial waste. After undergoing a period of simplification, the hope is that the business will be more cohesive and better able to direct energies, resources, as well as money towards the more profitable areas of the business.

Overly complex structures can mask a myriad of problems, making reporting and assessing performance difficult. When the efforts of one area are being dragged down by another, this can skew figures to such an extent that attributing accountability verges on the impossible. The same can also be said for analysing individual performers across the company, whose efforts may be going unnoticed.

The benefits of a streamlined business

A simplified business is a more agile business, allowing you to better respond to evolving customer needs, or quickly pivot in an ever-changing marketplace.

As a business owner who has worked tirelessly to build up your company and its operations, it may seem counter-productive to look at ways of shedding these layers. However, ensuring optimum performance, particularly during challenging economic times, is paramount to the ongoing viability of any business. Taking steps to simplify your company now, could stand it in better stead for whatever the future has in store.
