You already have a bookkeeper keeping your financial records up to date. Awesome.
You already have a tax accountant preparing your annual tax returns and financial statements. Unreal.
Both of these things are fundamental to keeping your business ticking over. And ticking over. From day to day. A heartbeat. Life support.
But life support is not life itself. Is your business thriving or surviving?
Who is keeping an eye on your cash flow, budget management, expense trends, profitability, financial risk and ultimately the overall success of your business? . . . Ah. . .
These critical tasks often take a back seat for business owners who find themselves wearing multiple hats struggling to keep up to date with day-to-day operations and manage any sort of work life balance.
Acting as your strategic partner and advisor, a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) supports your business with financial analytics and insights which form evidence for strategic direction and help identify opportunities. It is all about working smarter, together - not harder, on your own.
This kind of financial support is no longer limited to big corporations.
The Wandering CFO can be your Virtual CFO, providing your business with the financial insights and expertise it needs, with the flexibility and individual tailoring to suit you.
