Outsourced Financial Director
Why do you need a Finance Director if you have an accountant? An accountant, will help you fulfil your legal accounting and taxation duties and reporting your past performance to HMRC and Companies House. A Finance Director would be responsible for the company‚Äôs financial health.
They will combine operational and strategic roles, manage accounting and financial control functions, and establish a financial strategy for the profitable long-term growth of the business. In short, a Finance Director is more concerned with the future of the business.
Many small business will not benefit from a finance director, the advice and support from their accountant will be enough. However, for growing businesses, a Financial Director will play a key part in keeping control over the financial functions of the business, keeping adequate cash flow to fund the growth and help achieve the long term objectives of the business. However, they may not require a full time Financial Director or may only need help on either an adhoc project or on a part time basis. This is the gap we can fulfil.
