Small and medium-sized businesses that are not in a position to hire a full-time Controller or CFO are often the companies that would benefit the most from the expertise of an experienced Controller or CFO.
In order for your business to be the best, you need to execute your financial strategy in a well-planned and effective manner. With a talented Accountant, Controller or CFO you can focus on critical areas of your business such as marketing, sales and customer satisfaction, while knowing that your long term planning and financial reporting are being handled by a seasoned professional.
Growing businesses often reach a point where they need professional financial and accounting advice, but can’t afford a full-time Accountant, Controller, or CFO.
We can take complete responsibility for the financial side of your business, or we can function purely as your part-time / virtual Controller or CFO; optionally, managing your existing accounting and bookkeeping staff. Every business and situation is different.

ROLE OF THE VIRTUAL CONTROLLER / CFO
A Virtual Controller / CFO can provide management valuable financial oversight, advice and customized financial reports that provide real value to their business decision making. Business owners can focus their attention on growing their businesses and achieving their operational objectives.
The role of a virtual Controller / CFO extends beyond the handling, management and documentation of bank transactions, credit card statements, loans, liability and asset accounts, and payroll management to encompass trend analysis, responses to regulatory notices and deadlines, periodic reviews of accounting files and records and off site and onsite services.
The greatest advantage of hiring an external finance professional is that the business needs to pay only for the services received and can safely avoid the burdens of full time salary, paid holidays, additional perks and bonuses.
