CFO/Accounting Services

Growing businesses often reach a point where they need professional financial advice, but are unable to afford a full-time Chief Financial Officer (CFO) or controller. A business utilizing our CFO & Accounting Services has several options.

As your company’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) we oversee your accounting staff and monitor internal controls while providing financial statement analysis, projections, strategic planning, compliance, cash flow management, and tax planning. A CFO/Controller on your team can be more economical than employing a full-time in-house CFO, and still provide the expertise needed to help small and medium companies grow their business.

Providing daily accounting services in combination with the CFO component is also available. Daily bookkeeping services are also available, for the shareholder/owner, who is wearing many hats may delegate duties of the day-to-day accounting function.
