Benefits of an Outsourced CFO
High value. You’ll have less weight on your shoulders and more time on your hands. Reap the benefits of working with an experienced financial officer without the expense of hiring a full-time in-house employee.
Most new hires need time to get up to speed, but our experienced professionals contribute value immediately. Your business will benefit from our years of experience helping small businesses in many industries get their books in order, solve problems and grow.
Added security. Many small businesses fall victim to fraud when a lack of staff and oversight leaves a single employee in charge of the books. With the Giersch Group you’ll never have to wonder whether you can really trust the person you hired to handle sensitive financial information. A professional CFO will establish stronger financial controls to reduce theft by employees and grow profits.
Objectivity. It’s difficult to see the big picture when your energy is spent taking care of day-to-day tasks. A CFO or controller from the Giersch Group will get down to brass tacks and report the facts of your financial situation from an impartial perspective. You’ll get a reliable sounding board and key help defining your business goals and making plans to reach them.
Your CFO or controller will use their professional experience and judgment to help you make decisions that will take your business in the right direction.
Flexibility. A direct hire controller will need time off periodically and may not be available to work longer hours in busy seasons. Giersch Group CFO services mean you can more easily adapt as the needs of your business change.
Outsourced CFO services give business owners the ability to spend more time developing new services, reaching new customers and handling other core business issues. You’ll achieve a greater understanding of the financial health of your business and enjoy better control over your money with fewer surprises.
Interim CFO Services Provide Continuity during Times of Change
A sudden resignation can easily leave a small business in the lurch, especially when it’s the person responsible for financials. An interim CFO keeps things on an even keel during the recruitment and training process or while covering an extended leave of absence.
Interim CFO or controller services are also helpful:
- For important projects
- During a period of rapid growth or change
- To provide an outside analysis before a major decision
No matter what changes or developments your business encounters, you’ll rest easier knowing a professional CFO is on your side to oversee, protect and improve the financial side of things. Read testimonials from small business owners we've helped or book your free consultation today.
