What is a CFO?

A CFO, short for Chief Financial Officer, is responsible for the management of finances for a business. As the highest financial position within a company, a CFO has many duties that can range from cash flow analysis and budgeting through to the monitoring of financial health.

Can You Outsource a CFO?

Yes, a CFO can easily be outsourced for businesses that don’t have the resources to hire a CFO in a full time capacity, such as small businesses or businesses that have only recently started up.

While there’s no denying that the role of CFO is an important one, outsourcing comes with minimal risk and provides businesses with more flexibility. CFO outsourcing enables even the smallest of businesses to reap the advantages of a CFO, providing valuable assistance with managing finances, cashflow, budgeting and more. Outsourcing CFO services also enables a business to tailor the service to meet their unique needs.

The Benefits of Outsourcing CFO Services

If you’re wondering whether outsourcing a CFO is right for your business, it can help to be aware of the advantages. When you choose to outsource your CFO services to experienced business accountants in Melbourne like the ones at Alexander Bright, you can benefit from the following:

  • Fast results – When you partner with a CFO who has experience working with businesses like your own, you can be guided by their expertise. They’ll know exactly how to achieve your business objectives so you can see results faster.
  • Cost-effective – Hiring an outsourced CFO is a cost-effective alternative to hiring one in-house, as you will only pay for the time they actually work.
  • Objective perspective – It can be hard to take a step back from your business so you can look at the bigger picture. An outsourced CFO can provide you with an objective perspective so you can gain a clear and unbiased overview of your financials.
  • Greater experience – An outsourced CFO will be backed by years of financial experience, enabling them to offer a range of high-quality services to meet the needs of your company. When it comes to something as important as your business’ financials, there’s no substitute for experience.

The Difference between an Accountant and a CFO

A general accountant will provide services relating to data entry, bank reconciliation, Bill Pay, Payroll, GST Reporting and Income Tax. Many businesses are unaware of the fact that their accountants and bookkeepers can provide much more than day-to-day compliance and business taxation services.

Some clients will still choose basic business accounting services, but over time we can offer added value by providing useful insights. As our clients get to learn our methods and get to know us better, they start trusting us, and the advantage of working with us in an advisory capacity will crystallise.

Although both roles take care of financial matters, the main difference between the two roles is that a CFO conducts financial planning and cash flow management services that consider both the short and long-term finances of the company, helping to bring about continued growth and success.
