Virtual FD

Virtual FD

What is a Virtual FD?

A part time resource with a range of skills not available within your business 

  • An experienced Finance Director, a qualified Chartered Accountant
  • A part-time resource, you decide how much time you need
  • Multi-skilled and with access to specialist resources when needed
  • Able to work remotely by using the best in cloud technology
  • Most importantly, part of your team

Virtual

means we usually work from our office, if that suits your business, and we use collaboration tools to ensure our way of working with you is anything but remote. We also work with you on site, when that’s possible.

Flexibility

the key benefit of a Virtual FD service for you is the flexibility it brings to your business. You decide what services and support you need and for how long.

Do I need a Virtual FD?

If your business needs support but is not ready for an investment in a full time FD. 

Do you recognise any of these signs?

  • Business growth and profitability have stalled, or are not under control
  • There’s no coherent strategy that the business can get behind
  • You don’t have the  financial support, analysis and insight you need to make big decisions
  • You’ve got no exit strategy and don’t know how to maximize the value of the business 
  • You’re looking at acquisitions but don’t know what represents good value
  • You need to strengthen your balance sheet
  • Board meetings take place, but the real decisions have already been made 
  • Systems, processes and controls are dated and need an overhaul
  • You want support for your finance function to help them improve
  • You want to transform your company operations through automation

Cost

A part-time FD not surprisingly comes at a fraction of the cost of a full time equivalent. And there's no other employment costs or bonuses to consider

Effectiveness

A Virtual FD will focus on the priorities you set to ensure you get the best return on your investment in their time
