Frequently Asked Questions
A Chief Financial Officer is responsible for a company’s current and future financial situation. They oversee the financial reporting of the business, providing guidance on where to source or invest company funds. A major source of failures for companies is running out of cash and a CFO will highlight issues early to ensure the business does not get into trouble or if it does, has options to help it recover and then grow.
The role most accountants play is very different from a CFO. An accountant can provide the services of a CFO, however, most accountancy firms have dozens, possibly hundreds of clients and do not have time to spend looking in detail at the figures daily, weekly or monthly. A CFO is more part of your internal team looking forward rather than a consultant who comes in a few times a year to report your last year’s financial figures to the tax authorities.

If you are commercially aware and confident and capable running the financial affairs of your business, you may not need a CFO. However, most business owners would prefer to focus on sales, marketing, product development or operations and in general growing the business.
The question is how valuable your time is.
What could you do with at least an extra 4 hours a month? How profitable for the company would that extra 4 hours a month be from the additional sales you could generate?
