Traditionally, CFO’s have been the leading finance person in medium to large organisations. They have acted as the foil to the CEO and are more than just the “numbers person”.
While the financials underpin the work they do, they have become strategic business partners and are at the forefront of decision making and performance management.
What is the benefit to a SME?
Having an experienced finance leader, on a part time basis, allows you to gain high quality financial and strategic insight, thereby allowing you to make business decisions in confidence.
Examples of such aspects we manage are:
· Cash Flow Management
· Management Reporting
· Budgeting & Forecasting
· External Party Relationship Management
How do we work with you?
By working on a virtual, part time basis, we are able to act as your finance department without you incurring the cost of a full-time resource.
We can be involved in as little or as much as you are comfortable with. With our bookkeeping & accounting team, we are in a position to undertake your transactional finance via cloud accounting products, as well as manage all of the aspects above.
Will you get to know us?
Absolutely. One thing our twenty plus years in business has taught us is that relationships and communication are key to successful business relationships.
The use of cloud-based technology and communications allows for rapid response times to your queries and issues. For more complex issues, your dedicated CFO will be able to directly discuss the matter with you, in person if necessary.
Why use a CFO?
First, a quick exercise:
· Shut your eyes
· Think of where you are now
· Think of somewhere you need to go
· Now try and get there without opening your eyes
A CFO will provide you with a roadmap, with relevant checkpoints on the way, so that you can navigate your business from where you are today to where you want to be in the future.
What does it cost?
Like many things, that will depend on the level of involvement we have. Our costing structure allows you to pick and choose the services that you require.
However, a more important question is how much value can a CFO add to your business? As a business owner, you need to be able to take the advice and information the CFO provides and turn it into a tangible benefit.
