Why Insource your CFO?

The most important part of any business is the financial health and management. Hiring a full time CFO can be a real drain on cashflow if you need to pay a market rate salary.

Insourcing your CFO with an experienced accountant means you have a CFO as part of the team to help get the right foundations in place.

Should you Insource your CFO?

Insourcing your CFO as part of the team should be considered if:

  • You are growing and your cashflow is tight
  • You are uncertain of your cashflow position
  • The Founder has been looking after the finances until now
  • You are taking on new staff and need to effectively manage payroll
  • You want to take a more strategic view of your business
  • If you are seeking to raise debt or equity capital for growth

Insourcing a CFO Vs Hiring a CFO

It is natural to want to hire someone for a role that the founder has been doing themselves. However, hiring can be a huge drain on cashflow. Insourcing a Chartered Accountant as CFO is a lower initial investment and helps you to understand their importance.
