What is a Virtual CFO?

A virtual CFO is an external resource that is engaged to support some or all of the financial functions of a company. A good Virtual CFO will take responsibility for the entire finance function, giving business owners the confidence to step out of the day-to-day running of the business, and focus on growing their business.

What are the benefits?

A Virtual CFO allows businesses to reduce its spending on financial resources, when employing a full-time CFO can’t be justified. They can be contracted on an “as needs” basis, thereby offering greater flexibility than a full time employee.

Specialist skills
A Virtual CFO provides a range of specialist skills, and a team of resources that cannot be matched by a single CFO. With such a wide range of resources available, a Virtual CFO is able to tailor the solution to suit your needs.

Independent perspective
Objectivity can be difficult to find, but a Virtual CFO provides it. They, neither own the business, nor are employed by it, and as a result, provide an objective assessment of the financial performance of the business. All of this leads to better decision making.

Fewer responsibilities
As a Virtual CFO is not an employee, the business doesn’t encounter the usual HR issues such as; annual leave cover, employee satisfaction, training and career progression.
