An Ethical Virtual CFO... what’s that?

A CFO, short for Chief Financial Officer, is a crucial partner to the CEO, director, or business owner . They provide accurate data for decision-making, keep the directors informed about risks and opportunities, and assist in strategically growing the business. Whether it’s a startup, an established company aiming for further growth, or any stage in between, a CFO is valuable.

In some cases, businesses opt for a virtual CFO, also known as a fractional CFO. This arrangement involves the CFO providing their expertise and services for a specified number of hours per week or month, tailored to the client’s needs. The advantage is that businesses can access high-level financial guidance without the expense of hiring a full-time, in-house CFO.

Choosing a virtual CFO offers significant cost savings compared to an equivalent in-house role, while still reaping the benefits of having a trusted advisor. It’s a smart way to foster business growth while maintaining financial prudence.

So what does Ethical CFO actually do when it comes to your business’ accounts and finances?

Moushumi is super professional and knowledgeable and a great communicator. She had the task of fixing up a lot of historical errors in my Xero and she did it with ease. She also offers CFO type services which I will be utilising in the future to get a transparent insight into my numbers. Highly recommend.

Virtual CFO FAQs

A virtual CFO is a remote financial professional highly experienced in the industry, who provides strategic financial guidance and support to small to medium businesses. Unlike a traditional CFO who is employed full-time, a virtual CFO offers their services on a part-time or outsourced basis, providing cost-effective expertise without the need for a dedicated in-house CFO.

A virtual CFO provides services such as forecasting, budgeting, cash flow management, financial analysis, financial reporting, regular financial adjustments customised to your business and guidance on business decisions to help businesses achieve their financial goals and create capacity for further growth.

At Ethical CFO, we start the process by having an initial consultation to understand your business and your needs in depth. We then come up with a recommended plan that covers a process to introduce budgets, financial forecasts and meeting regularly to provide guidance and insights.

Virtual CFO services can benefit businesses across various industries and types, including startups, micro, small and medium-sized businesses. We work regularly with professional services firms, creative agencies, technology companies, e-commerce businesses, hair salons, trades and building services. But basically any organisation seeking financial expertise and strategic guidance can benefit from our Virtual CFO service without the need for a full-time CFO.

When you use the Virtual CFO Service at Ethical CFO, you work directly with Moushumi, the director and founder of Ethical CFO. She is a qualified CPA, active member of Institute of Public Accountants, Xero certified advisor and Payroll specialist with more than 20 years of experience working with Australian businesses from several different industries. She is known as the modern accountant for her ability to introduce automations and efficiencies and for her patience in dealing with business owners with compassion and a proactive approach.

You may consider engaging a virtual CFO if your business is seeking strategic financial guidance, wants to organise the business operations by having budgets and reporting in place, experiencing growth, facing complex financial challenges, or lacks in-house financial expertise.
