Meet Your Finance Team
An experienced CFO will help to formulate a strategic roadmap for growth and stability in any business. The CFO is not just a person who runs the finance administration, but is someone who partners with the CEO and Executive Team to navigate the risks and opportunities of your industry, providing strategic input and maximizing the ability of your company to achieve its best potential.
Financial Acumen, Process
As the person who “owns” the accounting function, an excellent Controller is the most important part of your finance department’s day-to-day operations. They will set up the accounting systems to ensure you know how the business is doing at any time. They’ll make sure the accounting is clean and crisp, ultimately issuing “no surprises” GAAP financial reporting to you, your team, and any appropriate external users of the information (such as banks and regulatory agencies).
Professional-level accounting knowledge
Accountants typically perform all of the basic professional tasks associated with the accounting function - they book transactions, maintain the general ledger, perform reconciliations, and analyze the results to ensure the books and records are accurate. They work at the direction of an Accounting Manager, Controller or other head of Accounting.
Professional-level financial analysis
Analysts gather, validate, organize and analyze data to make it useable to your business. They may produce reporting from your business operations (such as Key Performance Indicators and Dashboards) or from outside your business (such as information on the competitive landscape of your industry or geography). They also prepare forecasts and budgets to help in planning for your business’s future!
Transaction Entry and Reporting
Bookkeepers are normally responsible for administrative duties and the recording of transactions, including sales, payments from customers, expenses, and payments to vendors. They also provide valuable reporting to management or accountants on the transactions they book. In some businesses, they function as everything from part-time clerk to office manager, taking vital administrative functions off the plate of the owner or entrepreneur.
