Consulting 101

Fx5 Consulting's 101 sessions target the areas that most directly impact your business, from cash flow to compliance. Our team is happy to dive deep on any topic, or to create a custom curriculum to give you as much insight as possible into areas like:

  • Cost Accounting: Distillery accounting fundamentals, best practices, and more to manage your finances and achieve your operational goals.
  • Reporting: Filing reports is one thing – understanding them is something else entirely. Get to know TTB reports from the inside out, including how things move across reports, common issues, and what to lookout for each month.
  • Operations: Who should do what, and when? Get help with your business's operational strategy and evaluate staffing needs, roles and responsibilities, standard operating procedure, and more.
  • Compliance: Audits, fines, and shutdowns are too expensive to risk. Let us guide you in implementing a compliance program that makes compliance an everyday, ongoing practice to minimize risk to your business.
