Solid accounting is the cornerstone of growing a business. Yet many small and mid-sized businesses do without key financial insights because they think their needs are not big enough to justify the expense of hiring a CFO.

At the same time, accounting tasks often take too much time for a business owner to address with the level of diligence needed, even if the business has a bookkeeper or other accounting help in-house.

It’s a common scenario and one in which the right partner can provide a right-fit solution. Outsourced CFO services and controller services enable businesses to gain clear insights into their financial picture, but without adding to payroll. For some businesses, the services of a fractional or virtual CFO can be the difference between a thriving, profitable company and one living at the razor’s edge with a shaky bottom line.

Meeting your goals for growth and ability to scale with inadequate accounting and financial resources is a risky proposition, BUT so is struggling to keep up with a bloated payroll.

If your business falls into that middle ground where you need accounting help, but not a full-time CFO, consider the many advantages of outsourced CFO and accounting services.


Does Your Business Need Outsourced CFO & Controller Services?

Is it time for your business to move to a higher level of accounting and financial support – without the overhead of hiring a CFO? Here are a few signs that you may not be getting what you need:

  • Your business needs have outgrown the expertise of in-house accounting staff or current accounting firm
  • Your accounting and/or QuickBooks (or other accounting software) is a mess and you’re not sure you can trust your data
  • You lack confidence in the detail and accuracy of your financials
  • Month-end close takes too long or does not happen at all
  • You’re not sure why you have cash flow or profitability issues
  • Your profitability growth is not tracking to revenue growth
  • You lack the insights you need for short – or long-term decision making
  • You’ve had to pass on opportunities for growth or acquisition because you weren’t sure of your financial position
  • Time spent on in-house accounting and reporting leaves you with too little time to focus on growing your business
  • All of your in-house accounting and financial knowledge is siloed in one person


Why Use Outsourced Controller Services

Outsourced accounting and controller services can often provide more stability than adding to your staff because it gives you access to a team of specialists, with a wider range of skills and expertise. Needs change over the lifecycle of a business, and sometimes come up quickly. Examples of specialized services a holistic outsourced accounting partner can provide include:


Why Use Outsource CFO Services

Outsourced CFO services ensure you have all the expertise you need, but only when you need it. Outsourcing is far more cost-effective than hiring an experienced CFO. You don’t have to worry about training them, retaining them, or replacing them if they leave. When your needs grow, a fractional CFO has the ability to scale and grow with you, while ensuring you always have access to the level of financial detail you need for agile decision making.

A virtual CFO can also work with you to establish the processes and financial diligence you need to ensure your month-end close is completed quickly, accurately and with the level of detail you need.
