All the benefits of a CFO, with the flexibility of a virtual service

Sometimes an accountant just isn’t enough.

There’s financial reporting, managing day-to-day finance operations, and monitoring KPIs, work in progress, and your P&L. Having someone to manage all this would be a huge weight lifted off your shoulders, but you don’t have the hours (or budget) for a Chief Financial Officer. 

Using a virtual CFO service, you gain all the experience of a seasoned CFO (and a full finance team) with the flexibility and monthly fee of a virtual service. Better yet, our virtual CFO service gives you all this with the added benefit of first-hand experience in the building and construction sector.
