Inspired Fractional CFO Services

As a small business owner or manager, when you look down the road, do you see a clear path to success or are there financial hurdles you’re not sure how to get past?

If you need help moving forward, you might want to consider hiring a Chief Financial Officer. The CFO can act as a strategic advisor to your business and provide financial expertise in a wide range of areas such as budgeting, cash flow management and forecasting, risk management, and developing long-range strategy and goals.

If you can’t afford to hire a full-time CFO, a great option you may want to consider is outsourcing a fractional CFO. Inspired Accounting offers competitively priced outsourced CFO services to assist with your small business financial management.

What services does a fractional CFO provide?  

Fractional CFO services are a great way to tap the experience of a finance professional to help you develop infrastructure and financial strategy for your business. They can assist you with scaling your business for long-term growth, develop financial reports, monitor cash flow, prepare budgets, explore tax savings, suggest ways to raise capital, assist with strategic decisions, and provide financial analysis of profitability and trends.

Having access to CFO services is also beneficial for developing long-term goals, strategic plans and business models. Should a possible merger or acquisition be on your business’s horizon, they can also provide forecasting, analysis and assist with documentation needs. Hiring a fractional CFO can also provide the expertise needed to train existing or new staff in the accounting or finance department.

Why do you need CFO services?

Investing in a fractional CFO can provide you with a solid grasp of the overall financial health of your small business. As financial experts, they can help you develop an actionable business plan geared toward growing your business.
