Is your business ready for a Part-time Finance Director?

What is a part-time Finance Director?

As your business grows it becomes more and more important for you to have control over your finances. However, many business owners either do not have the time or do not have the financial experience to do this themselves, so they look to their accountant to provide this support. The problem they often find though is that most accountants do not have relevant experience to really add value in this area.

This is where having a part-time commercial finance director can really help you. We have real hands-on experience providing commercial financial support to business managers, gained from working in industry for some of the largest companies in the world. This allows us to provide a genuinely proactive part-time finance director service.

Some of the areas where we can provide assistance include;

  • Managing your cash and working capital
  • Securing new finance for your business
  • Planning your business and financial strategy
  • Analysing your current business performance and suggesting areas for improvement
  • Leading and managing your finance function
  • Planning and completing business acquisitions and disposals
  • Planning your exit strategy

How does it work?

Depending on the size and complexity of your business there are a number of solutions we can offer, tailored to your specific needs.

Virtual Finance Director

This is particularly suitable for smaller businesses. Here we use online accounting software, which we provide to you free of charge, to stay in touch with your business and provide on-going advice. Virtual meetings are held by phone on a regular basis to discuss your business's performance, any issues or problems you have, and agreeing on actions needed to improve the performance. This is a very cost-effective way of providing even small businesses with proactive support.

Part-time Finance Director

For growing businesses a part-time finance director service would be more appropriate. Here a higher level of support is provided with regular face-to-face meetings. This can be done on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, or ad hoc basis, depending on your needs. This allows us to really understand your business and the issues it is facing, and help you come up with solutions to take your business to the next level.


If you would like to find out more about our part-time or virtual finance director services then please contact us to arrange a no obligation meeting to discuss how we can help take your business to the next level.
