Why your business needs a finance director

There are many benefits to employing a part-time finance director. Here are some of them:

  • Enjoy direct access to a senior finance professional working alongside you within your business
  • Avoid getting sidetracked by routine accounting and cash management issues, freeing yourself to drive the business forward
  • See what is really happening in your business by analysing the financial detail
  • Take strategic decisions based on up-to-date management accounting information and reliable financial forecasts
  • Put robust finance systems in place that can grow with your business

A part time FD is a cost-effective solution

Many smaller companies would benefit from the strong financial management that a senior finance figure can provide but it is not yet practicable or cost-effective to employ someone in the role full-time.

That is why a part time Finance Director is a cost-effective solution. KW Finance Director Services can provide the critical expertise and guidance of an in-house Finance Director without incurring the expense of creating a full-time position.
I can put more than 29 years experience in senior commercial finance positions and accountancy practice roles to work at the heart of your business.

Financial management fit for purpose

Every business needs bookkeeping to record its transactions for year end accounting and taxation compliance. But many growing businesses increasingly find there is a gap between the basic bookkeeping and the year end accounts produced by their external accountant. Annual statutory accounts primarily present information for external consumption, and are usually issued some months after the year end. They are not designed to 'get underneath the skin' of a business, and are likely to be inadequate for managing all but the smallest businesses.

Dynamic and growing businesses require:

  • Strong management of core accounts processes
  • Regular financial reporting
  • Ongoing business planning
  • A financial voice in Board/management meetings
  • Professional support when liaising with business partners like banks, investors and other key stakeholders
