Should your firm hire a fractional CFO?
A fractional CFO is typically onboarded when you find there are frustrations that the current accounting team does not either have the bandwidth to service or the skillset to tackle.
Regardless if there is an in-house CFO or not, a fractional CFO will collaborate with the team to complete specific projects such as cash flow issues or take on the lead in guiding a due diligence audit.
By creating customized financial forecasts and preparing budgets, a fractional CFO will help your company analyze potential future products, services, and markets.
If you are ready to take your business to the next level, a fractional CFO will support you by ensuring you not only have the right systems/vendors in place but also have the financial capital you need to scale.
