    What is an outsourced finance director?

    An outsourced finance director works alongside the managing director to establish your business’s strategy and goals and then provide actionable steps to achieve the desired outcome. Improving the business’s profitability is usually a key goal.

    This process often starts by determining what is possible to achieve. Then, it looks at the key drivers of profitability to see where improvements can be made. Pricing is often a key area to review.

    What type of businesses would benefit from having an outsourced finance director?

    Many businesses can benefit from having the services of an outsourced finance director.

    1) Growing companies

    Companies that are growing quickly or have already seen significant growth often experience challenges with working capital, which requires professional financial management to prevent damaging cash flow issues.

    2) Businesses facing challenges

    Companies struggling to understand what is working well within their business and what areas need improvement would benefit from reviewing their current financial reports to see where improvements could be made. This would provide the company with more insightful financial information that will allow them to drive improved performance.

    Similarly, if your business uses basic accounting systems that provide limited financial control, it may benefit from a financial review of its current systems along with recommendations on how they could be improved.

    3) Businesses in transition

    Companies looking to acquire another business would benefit from the services of an outsourced finance director to help them with the acquisition, understand the due diligence required, and model the opportunities and risks of the acquisition.
