As your business expands, do you have the strategic roadmap that leads to operational leverage and improved proﬁt margins?
Benefits of hiring a Fractional CFO/COO:
Tracking and reporting financial data. In addition to ensuring that financial reporting is accurate and timely, CFO implements accounting systems, financial controls and policies, and procedures. Better visibility is a key step toward improved business performance. Do you have internal controls in place to prevent and detect fraud? CFO Concepts has experience in detecting and mitigating fraud at both a domestic and international level.
Analyzing the current financial condition. CFO ensures that adequate capital is available to support the ongoing needs of the organization. They advise on the best mix of debt, equity and internal financing. How can you manage working capital more efﬁciently and improve operating cash ﬂow? CFO oversees risk management, ensuring that there is adequate insurance coverage. How much can your margins improve and proﬁts increase? CFO Concepts can hire and train the finance and accounting staff, as well as manage outside relationships with independent accounting, tax, and legal advisors.
Planning for the future. CFO Concepts works with the CEO and Board of Directors to provide financial insight and help design business strategy.
