Beyond Bookkeeping: CFO and business consulting Services

image13

To succeed in today’s ever-changing marketplace, it is important for a company to both gain and sustain its competitive advantage. An important ingredient in achieving this edge is an effective Chief Financial Officer (CFO) function. The role of the CFO has evolved from being a backward-looking financial policeman to a forward-thinking strategist whose main job is to provide advice on a wide range of issues. The required skill set includes an ability to set strategy, lead change initiatives, and prepare value-added analyses to enhance the Company’s value. Yet most small businesses are often stuck in a quandary — they often need the help of financial professionals to take their business to the next level, yet they cannot afford nor do they need, a full time executive.


One excellent solution? Engage a part-time chief financial officer (CFO). This relationship offers many benefits and very little downside to the small company. A part-time CFO offers companies the opportunity to have a top-level CFO and Controller with experience in a large company and an entrepreneurial spirit, all for a fraction of the cost of a full-time hire. 

Our Part-Time CFO service provides the following:

  • Development and implementation of a business plan
  • Improvement of the quality, consistency and timeliness of financial statements
  • Establishment of accounting and reporting systems and procedures
  • Performance of "fiscal physicals" to identify all possible cost savings
  • Preparation of cash flow projections and budgets
  • Internal controls to reduce the risk of fraud and theft
  • Creation and implementation of a financial dashboard
  • Supervise, review, train and evaluate accounting staff
  • Assist with year-end closing and serve as an interim controller
  • Business growth planning
  • Sounding board for your business ideas
  • Systems and workflow improvement
