In today’s time, businesses are focusing more on ways to optimize their financial structures. This means cutting down on unnecessary expenses without necessarily foregoing advantages that such tasks ensure.
This is where things like outsourced CFO services come in. Hiring a full-time CFO is a major hassle for a business, not just because the business has to bear its high salary but it also has to provide the CFO with a full team, top tech tools, and infrastructure so that the CFO can do the job assigned to it in the best possible manner.
All these things add up phenomenally on costs, so if the business can save them through just outsourcing the whole thing, then this becomes a tantalizing proposition that a business cannot ignore.
Outsourcing CFO Services gives small firms access to financial experts with a wide range of experiences and a commitment to keeping up with best practices in the field. It gives business owners the flexibility to access that expertise as needed, rather than committing to a full-time in-house resource.
Situations that call for outsourcing the CFO function are varied, and include the following scenarios:
- You’re an entrepreneur. Your business is taking off and you have a lot of balls in the air – you simply don’t have enough time for budgeting, forecasting, and analyzing financial results;
- You run a small- to mid-sized business. You know your customers and your services and/or products inside and out, but you’re less focused on dissecting the financial side of the business. As a result, you sometimes make decisions based on instinct instead of financial data and other objective inputs;
- You’ve raised some venture capital to expand your business and you need to update your investors about profit margins, customer acquisition costs, and other key performance indicators, but you’re not sure how to put that together.
- Your business has been getting along with a one-person finance department, and that person just gave two-weeks’ notice. While you have a bookkeeper, you don’t fully understand the financial statements they prepare. You’ve been feeling like you could use more in terms of financial planning and analysis but you’re not really sure what you need.
- You have a bookkeeper or controller and you do not understand the financial statements that they are preparing and presenting.
- The business is not performing as well as you think it should. An objective third party can help you understand where it is falling short and where the action is required.
This flexibility allows you to avoid the unpleasant situation of having to hire quickly when business suddenly booms, or lay off employees if things take a downward turn. Outsourced service providers are used to abruptly scaling their service and a quality CFO should be no exception.
Do not waste time and resources on recruiting and hiring for these crucial tasks. Outsourcing partners have staff on hand that can quickly and seamlessly join the team.
