Managing your finances is the key to success for any business, large or small. However, for many businesses sometimes financial management tasks such as bookkeeping gets left on the back burner. For smaller businesses focused on just getting by, this can be especially true. The services and experience a CFO can offer your business are highly valuable. However, this also means that keeping a CFO on staff can be very costly.

What's the answer to balancing a need for financial management assistance without breaking the bank? Outsourcing! With outsourced CFO services you can get the professional service your business needs. There are a number of benefits to seeking outsourced CFO services.

AFFORDABILITY. The average salary for a full-time CFO is around $300,000 a year. Outsourcing your CFO services, however, means you are using a fraction of the CFO's time on an as-needed basis. You get all of the knowledge and experience of a CFO at a fraction of the cost.

INCREASED REVENUE. An outsourced CFO can do more than just balance your books, he or she can produce results. A skilled CFO is able to increase revenue in a number of ways, and often faster than you may think—by negotiating lower costs with vendors, invest in efficient software, offer transparency in bookkeeping and finances, advise cutting back on unnecessary expenses, increase production with strategic investment advice, project revenue and create a plan for growth—and much more!
