CFOs are not just for the Big Corporates
Expertise When You Need It
Are CFOs Unaffordable?
Most small companies think they can’t afford a Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and they are probably correct when it comes to a fulltime professional. Instead they rely on Chief Accountants that may have read the autobiographies of iconoclastic leaders in the financial game. The company gambles that their financial advisor has picked up enough hints and clues so that when it’s time to make a decision they will guess correctly. That is not often successful.
It’s unrealistic to expect that a truly qualified CFO, who earns millions of dollars per year in order to make companies rich, is going to be successfully second-guessed. The CFO has decades of experience, and understands the nuances of investment and money markets that are constantly in flux.
Is a CFO just a glorified accountant? Absolutely not! The Chief Financial Officer is a highly experienced professional with an extensive career centred on more than just counting money. They show you how to create the opportunities to make money.
There is not a Large Enterprise in existence today that can function without a CFO. The job is simply too complex to leave in the hands of other corporate officers. Without a CFO it could be weeks or months before a company-destroying problem is unearthed, by which time it might be too late to fix it. Outsourced CFO services in Singapore is therefore very common and widely used, and must be used for good.
How does a CFO help?
Are you out of compliance with tax regulations? Are delinquencies compromising your ability to meet your own financial obligations? Aside from finding you new ways to increase corporate profits, the CFO’s job is to make you aware of processes or decisions that are leading the business astray.
What Does a CFO Do?
Your outsourced CFO is a highly qualified professional with years of experience. He is someone who provides actionable strategic advice, precisely when you need it! All of our CFOs are professionals, including Chartered Accountants, Financial Analysts, and Financial Experts who have all worked alongside Multinational Corporations.
They can identify financial chokepoints such as delinquent accounts, slow payers, credit overextensions, or other impediments to good cash flow. Businesses need money to move in order to pay for day-to-day operations, and your virtual CFO will get you back on track.
Growing Your Business
If you’re looking to expand, consolidate, or merge, your virtual CFO or outsourced CFO can help you figure out the best financing. Funding growth may derive from borrowing, selling assets, stock offerings, investments, or many other alternatives. They can show you what’s best for your business.
A successful business requires an intimate understanding of its current financial status through reliable Reporting. With this vital data in hand, your outsourced CFO can provide a look at the future of your organisation; they can show you where you’re headed; most importantly, they can show you what you can expect to find when you arrive.
So Much More
There are hundreds of smaller, more subtle ways in which an outsourced CFO can contribute. He can participate in Board activities, guide outsourcing decisions, prepare financial reports, manage budgeting and forecasts, create management plans, perform system, procedural, and personnel reporting, or produce cash flow reviews, and prepare appropriate recommendations.
Advice on strategic planning, acquisition management, and asset disposal can all contribute to increasing your bottom line. Your outsourced CFO can even interface with investors as your Liaison Officer, often considered part of the CFO’s function.
