Thousands of businesses are hurting because they lack professional financial insights, but they can’t yet afford a full-time CFO or controller.
A Virtual CFO is often the ideal solution for small and growing businesses. Hiring a full-time CFO can cost over $200,000 per year, and that’s not even including bonuses and benefits. My Virtual CFO services provide you with expert support at a fraction of that cost. My experience uniquely positions me to help you guide your business to success.
Virtual Service Tiers
All services are tailored to the specific needs of the business. In general, I offer 4 tiers of service:
Bookkeeping is usually the last thing on business owners’ minds. I offer cloud-based accounting and bookkeeping services that will ensure that your books are up-to-date and finished on time, every time.
Financial analysis is critical to understanding what is driving your profitability. This tier includes historical analysis, financial planning & forecasting, and tax return preparation.
The controller level includes more detailed forecasting, management of AP/AR, and we start to look bigger picture with strategic planning.
In addition to any combination of the above services, the CFO level manages 3rd party relationships (bank, insurance, etc.), tracks key performance metrics, and assumes responsibility for providing financial insights that drive profitability.
As your Virtual CFO, I can do virtually anything a full-time CFO would
at a fraction of the cost.
