As a business grows, it frequently reaches the point where financial advice is needed from a professional. Unfortunately, the cost of hiring a full-time CFO (chief financial officer) or controller may not currently be justified. What to do? One solution is to outsource CFO services.
What is a CFO? As just referenced, the letters stand for “chief financial officer”. This person is responsible for a company’s financial actions management and is likely a senior officer. Duties can include the following:
- Identify and analyze the financial weakness and strength of a company
- Propose corrective actions
- Track financial plans
- Track cash flow
