Outsourced and Virtual CFO Services

You’re most likely aware that hiring a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) has its benefits. But you may also think it’s outside of your price range, especially if you’re a small business. Not so fast.

For the fraction of a cost of an in-house CFO, you can hire an outsourced, part-time or virtual one who can take care of the work. And where better to look for an outsourced or virtual CFO than with Pat Robards Advisory?

Simply put, a Chief Financial Officer is the senior executive who looks after a company’s finances. A CFO has a number of responsibilities including:

  • Reporting accurate financial information for the benefit of all company stakeholders.

  • Strategising how best to invest company money.

  • Economic forecasting: using the information available to predict the future of the economy.

  • Overseeing the business’s taxation affairs and liaising with external accountants etc.

Not only will hiring a part-time or outsourced CFO save you money, it also has a range of other benefits. By decreasing your overall expenses, an outsourced CFO will make it easier to scale your business. Bringing an unbiased “outsider” on board can also help you to see your business from a fresh perspective. Of course, it’s only an effective strategy if the CFO has the experience to take your business to the next level.

With more than 30 years’ experience in accounting and business, very few CFOs have as much experience as Pat Robards.

Pat’s work history is as diverse as it is extensive, but throughout the years he’s demonstrated a commitment to helping businesses reach their full potential.
