Fractional CFO Services

Outsourced Professional Finance & Accounting to Fuel Your Company’s Success

Every business is built on a simple model: You invest, create, and earn. Businesses of all sizes invest capital and resources to create valuable products or offer services to their clients, receiving payments in return. Regardless of your business’s industry, the stability of the cash-in and cash-out cycle is critical to its success.

When you started your business, it is unlikely that you felt excited about crunching the numbers and managing all the finances. Your core business might have the best products and services in the industry. However, you need sound financial management to keep your books in order, make business decisions based on precise information, and position your company for success.

If you run a small- or medium-sized business (SMB) or a startup, you might not have the budget to create a full-time finance department. However, it does not mean you should not have access to the benefits of a capable accounts department led by an experienced Chief Financial Officer (CFO). This is where Fractional CFO comes in to provide you with a cost-effective and impactful solution to fuel your company’s growth and success.

Fractional CFO Services FAQ

We have answered questions to some of the most frequently asked questions our clients have. We hope they help you find answers to some of the questions you might have.

A Fractional CFO is a seasoned financial expert who lends expertise to SMBs, startups, real estate companies, and other businesses. They take on and perform the responsibilities of a CFO for their clients, offering the top-notch financial management skills of an experienced finance leader at a cost more suitable to businesses with smaller budgets.

A part-time CFO, or fractional CFO, is an outsourced financial officer who takes on the role of a CFO for SMBs and startups, providing the need-based services of a CFO for a company that is flexible based on the company’s changing requirements. They perform the job of a full-time CFO without being a full-time employee, lending their expertise to fuel your company’s growth.

Fractional CFOs and part-time CFOs are individuals who fulfill the responsibilities and roles of a full-time CFO but are not full-time and in-house employees. Put simply, a part-time CFO can do virtually everything a full-time CFO does, but only as needed, offering more flexibility in what you pay for, minimizing your company’s expenses, and maximizing the value for money.

There’s never a one-size-fits-all solution when hiring fractional CFO services, which means the cost of hiring these services can vary drastically. While part-time CFO services can cost between $150-$550 an hour, several factors can impact the cost of part-time CFO services, including:
  • Your company’s size
  • Your balance sheet’s complexity
  • The CFO services you need
  • The size of the team your part-time CFO needs
Yes, it is definitely worth it. While you might consider working with a fractional CFO as a major investment. However, compared to hiring a full-time CFO that demands benefits and a salary befitting their role, you can easily save at least 50% to 60% by outsourcing to part-time CFO services.
