We use the services of consulting CFO and I cannot sing their praises highly enough. They go above and beyond and are extremely knowledgeable in their various fields. At the end of the day it is also about results and they more than deliver on that too and in a very expedient and efficient manner. Highly recommended!

Insights

In-House CFO vs. Outsourced CFO
There is no doubt that hiring a full time Chief Financial Officer (CFO) makes complete sense when a business reaches a certain size or an advanced level of complexity in structure. There is also no question that a CFO occupies a crucial role in growing a business’ profitability, especially in the longer term. The decision facing business owners, is when is the right time to bring on a full-time CFO or whether there are benefits to having a part-time or outsourced CFO until a full-time CFO role stacks up financially.

The advantages of Outsourced CFO Services
The reason why a business should have an outsourced CFO is that they offer ‘strategic financial insight and manoeuvring that leads to increased revenue, without the need to pay a full-time CFO salary.’

Five ways to grow your business with a Virtual CFO
There are very few business owners who wouldn’t welcome expert financial advice and financial help if it was available, as good financial advice and financial management are keys to success for any business, small or large.

What are the benefits of Outsourced CFO Services?
Numerous small to medium sized businesses (SMB) have outsourced their CFO function to a CFO Service company and for a number of good reasons: The costs of a full time Chief Financial Officer (CFO) are often prohibitive for a small or medium sized company. It is virtually impossible to find a part time CFO, often because experienced CFO’s who want to work part time are working for CFO Service companies and not available for smaller organisations.

What value can a CFO bring to my business
A CFO can make a huge difference in the way a business grows and how it operates on a day-to-day basis, as well as having a dramatic impact on the financial strategy, including forward planning, capital raising, borrowing, financial and tax planning, compliance, and business owner exit. It is hard to disagree a chief financial officer or CFO services don’t add significantly to a business.

What is an Outsourced CFO Service?
Outsourcing CFO services will give companies all the benefits of having a highly skilled and experienced Chief Financial Officer (CFO) on their team, but at a much-reduced cost.

How to avoid wasting time when buying a business?
SME’s can get caught up in the excitement an acquisition opportunity presents, but often the process can be time consuming, a drain on resources and very costly if you don’t manage the process properly up front.

Managing an effective Accounting team
Effectively managed accounting teams invariably make a significant difference to the general performance of a business. With integrity of the accounting function comes reliable and timely financial and management information.

CFO decision fatigue: Is it effecting you?
Today’s top executives make hundreds of decisions each day. We marvel at the amount of decisions a Finance Executive and especially Virtual CFOs that act for more than one organisation has to make on a daily basis. Couple the professional decisions with family, friends, health and other life commitments and it begins to add up!

The value of CFO Profiling
Organisations normally engage in developing a robust CFO Profile when they need to recruit, however conducting the same process within your organisation when recruitment is not the focus can have great benefits for aligning business strategy with the individual and team.

How a Board can influence an SMB Business?
A functional Board contributes to the overall productivity of the organisation and staff often look to the Board of Directors for guidance, regulations, support, and the tools and resources to do the work that is expected of them. When a Board is lax or negligent, or does not take care of tasks and responsibilities, it doesn’t take long before staff and the daily operations of the organisation are affected.

What are you projecting – The Power of Feedback and Perceptions
Ever been given feedback that you disagree with? What was your response? If you are like most, then your response was probably along the lines of: Anger; “Where does he/she get off telling me that.” Denial; “That’s not how it happened.” Deflection; “He/she should concentrate on their own problems.” Righteousness; “What would he/she know? I know more about this than them.”

Why is month-end keeping you up at night?
I have always been amazed when I hear CFOs and their teams working well into the night to fulfil their month end obligations. Journals, rework, analysis, reporting until the late hours of the evening, month after month, year after year.

Is it time to engage a CFO?
There is a common misconception out there that a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is a role only available to the large corporate. However, if you continue to hold this view you could be doing your business a critical injustice. Having the commercial guidance that a CFO can provide to get your business from where you are now to where you want to be is one of the best investments a business owner can make.
