Virtual CFO Services

What are Virtual CFO services?

An experienced full time CFO brings great value to a company. From staying on top of your company’s finance function to guiding business strategy, the CFO draws from years of experience working with multiple clients as well as their deep finance expertise to ensure sustainable growth. However, not all businesses are large enough to justify a full time CFO on their payroll. Virtual CFO services fill that gap by offering part-time, remote CFO services that bring value to your business at a reasonable cost. They analyse your company’s monthly reports and provide insights that help streamline your operations and maximise your business growth. Virtual CFO services are a class of Outsourced CFO services. Other Outsourced CFO services include Fractional CFO, Project CFO, and Interim CFO services.

What exactly will a Virtual CFO do for my business?

A VCFO can act as a co pilot for your business. How our experts help depends on your company’s needs and size. A startup or small business may have different goals. Small firms may be more focused on growth compared to larger companies. Our services will align to your business’s goals. If you are a startup looking to raise capital, our Virtual CFO will be able to provide expert advice, guide you and manage the process throughout.

Do small businesses and start ups need a Virtual CFO?

A virtual CFO can act not just as a service provider, but as a business advisor or financial coach to your firm or company. They will be able to use analysis and forecasting to provide strategy and lead you forward, especially if your business or start up is looking to grow or scale. Whether you need one or not depends entirely on your business . Here are a few examples of criteria whereby you may need some level of CFO support

In this day and age, the future has become much harder to predict. Changes in the marketplace and technology as well as shifts in consumer behaviour creates a need for businesses to adapt. The business will need to identify new opportunities and strategies.

A growing company leads to growing financial responsibilities, sometimes to the extent that the business’s own finance team is unable to cope.

There comes a point whereby your company wants to start raising funds to further accelerate your business growth. It may be a difficult process for many, with most not even familiar with the process.

What are the main differences between accounting firms, controller services and a Virtual CFO?

At the basic level, accountants serve as bookkeepers of a business, always sure to maintain the accuracy of financial documents and ensuring proper reconciliation. They also perform basic accounting services such as compliance, tax returns and managing accounts. Fortunately, modern accounting software such as Xero or Quickbooks has made it more convenient and efficient for those in the accounting profession to keep track of a company’s accounts, especially with the use of cloud technology.

The financial controller is the head of a company’s accounting department, performing several duties depending on the company, such as implementing tactics to strengthen the company’s accounting practice and procedures. Other responsibilities may include but are not limited to budgeting, ensuring accounts ledgers are cleaned up, monitoring future legislation that may have an operational impact on the business, collecting and analysing financial data, tax preparation duties, and ensuring the company’s financial statements are completed in a timely and accurate manner.

Whilst controllers and accountants will be mostly looking at historical data, the CFO has to be more forward thinking, and instead be focused on what will be coming. They are the finance team leader and play a significant role in planning for the business’s future, optimizing processes, giving advice to help stakeholders/business owners about important company decisions based on projections and other financial analysis. Nothing is more important than the CFO having full confidence in their decision making ability. They can also lead the way in scaling and creating & maintaining relationships with investors. A VCFO will be able to lead your firm in a way to stay on top of these challenges and ensure your business’s well-being.
