The events of the past year have made many small businesses reassess the structural operations their businesses run in; organisations are looking for ways to run as lean as possible. There is a heightened measure to cut staff and outsource where feasible. This has attended to the trend of hiring a Virtual CFO service over an outdated in-house full-time CFO.

Below, we will go in-depth as to what working with a virtual CFO is like, as well as, providing you with some resources for the next step in your decision-making process.

Details of a Virtual CFO Engagement


Hiring a virtual CFO is a simple task with our guidance. We can get our systems in place and everyone up to speed within the first month of being with your company. Common activities often take place in this period:

  • Set long new term and short-term goals specific to your business. We will then help formulate a plan to achieve those goals. Also, we can then inform the technology, team, and process to achieve your desires.
  • We can help formulate reports which match the way you interpret your data. Depending on the person behind the business, we can present reports in a visual method to help you gain the best understanding of charts and graphs. We can also retain the tradition report designs through numerical data only. We will be able to see items which can be improved or enhanced to keep an eye on and evolve those as your business challenges and opportunities to chase.
  • Technology recommendations through cloud-based Accounting Software’s.
  • Reworking your balance sheet as far too often businesses do not separate their business transactions and their personal transactions. This often leads to the business having a large director’s loan amount and posting losses when they are not. 
  • Enhancing financial processes through our knowledge of financial processes in various sectors over the years.

Ongoing Deliverables

After onboarding is completed and you are happy to proceed with our plans, we can deliver detailed and comprehensive financial reporting. We are happy to keep this a strictly virtual CFO service utilising Zoom or Microsoft Teams to regularly catch up. However, we understand that you would like to have face to face meetings which can easily be arranged as well. 

The data itself can come from Accounting software’s such as Xero or MYOB, which can produce easily readable reports.
