Do you feel like you’re constantly fighting fire? Are you making decisions without all of the information you need? Are your financial reports a jumbled mess that no one can understand? If so, it may be time to hire a CFO. Contrary to popular belief, CFOs are not just for large businesses. Small businesses can benefit from their expertise as well. In this blog post, we will discuss the signs that indicate your small business is ready for a CFO.
As the business owner, you should be able to answer the following questions:
- Do you have a clear understanding of your company’s financial performance?
- Can you benchmark your performance against industry standards?
- Are you making revenue-producing decisions?
- Is your company operating according to a budget?
- Do you analyse variances between your budget and actual performance?
- Do you prepare financial forecasts for shareholders and lenders?
- Are you making strategic decisions based on accurate financial data?
If you answered “no” to any of these questions, it may be time to hire a CFO. A CFO can help you gain a clear understanding of your company’s financial performance and benchmark it against industry standards. They can also help you develop a budget and make revenue-producing decisions. In addition, a CFO can prepare financial forecasts for shareholders and lenders and support you in making strategic decisions based on accurate financial data.
“But we’re not large enough to justify the expense of a CFO,” you may say. “We already have a bookkeeper.”
The size of your business should not be the determining factor in whether or not you hire a CFO. The key is understanding what a CFO can do for your business and whether or not their skills are something that you currently lack. If you feel like you could benefit from having a CFO on your team, don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our experienced professionals at EzyGrowth and together we can take your business to the next level.
