Outsource CFO Services
I realize I’m biased, but CFO’s are useful. Consider the following scenarios.
You have to set up a transfer-pricing arrangement but you don’t know where to start. Your payroll has mistakes every month and your employees are furious. The bookkeeping materials you bring to your accountant are regularly missing 50% of your receipts. As a result your accountant increased their monthly rates. You have to implement GDPR and it’s huge and intimidating. You have to set up an ESOP but haven’t gotten to it. A hot prospective investor is hounding you for a cap table. No one has time to issue customer invoices so you’ve $50,000 you haven’t even billed. And on and on…
In all of these instances, a CFO would be a really great thing to have handy. The problem is that, as a small startup, you don’t need one there all the time. Nor can you afford one.
The solution: an as-needed CFO! I’m available as much or as little as you need and on an hourly, hours-bank or a retainer basis.
