FAQs

Your Finance Director (or CFO) is much more than a ‘bean counter’. As part of the senior executive team they are responsible for your company’s financial health and growth strategy. They will get ‘under the bonnet’ of your business and provide you with timely, useful management information that you can use to grow profitably and expand. They will manage your cashflow and take the lead in managing fundraising requirements.

They will also develop and implement strategies that manage risk, cash flow, costs and expenditure and ensure that your company is meeting all its statutory obligations (VAT, PAYE, annual returns etc).

When you’re starting your business, your FD is invaluable in helping you develop your strategy and produce all the models and materials required to obtain seed funding for your venture. As you grow and get into your stride, they’ll put the right processes in place to give you the information you need to adjust and correct your financial journey.

In smaller companies there isn’t much difference between the two. They are both responsible for the financial management and strategy of their companies. However, in larger organisations the FD will be responsible for the high-level accounting, while the CFO will be responsible for business strategy development and implementation.

The biggest companies may have an FD for each business unit or country, regional FDs or CFOs and a global CFO.

When you’re small and starting out you often can’t afford to employ an FD full time. An interim/part-time FD is the answer. You will be employing an individual with a range of skills for a fraction of the cost. They’ll be able to provide you with a range of skills and services, from strategy development, investment activities, investor relationships, cash flow management and expansion planning.

They will attend all board and development meetings and, depending on your size and requirements, they may spend one or two days a week or month.
