CEOs, owners and management of small to medium-sized businesses know their business and their customer needs very well. However, most businesses in this category have financial management needs that are beyond the knowledge, expertise or the experience of the in-house accounting staff. Most businesses in this category do not need either the large cost or the full time commitment of a permanent CFO. Turning to your CPA firm may help with limited scope matters, however, CPAs lack both the skills and experience that a talented and experienced CFO brings to the company. Companies in this category in general do not understand the benefits of engaging a CFO Consultant. CFO Consultants with the right skills and industry experience bring financial expertise to these companies at a fraction of the cost of a full-time CFO. The ROI to companies that engage a CFO Consultant can be huge.
