Why Hire a Virtual or Outsourced CFO Over an In-house CFO?

While every company can benefit from the high-level strategy, operational fine-tuning, expertise and business contacts of a CFO, not every company is able to remunerateone full-time. An in-house hire typically requires an annual salary plus benefits which, for a C-suite executive, can be cost-prohibitive.Especially when you factor-in annual raises. Typically, an affordable CFO may lack the experience required of the role. When you hire a virtual or outsourced CFO,your dollar goes farther because you only pay for the work you need.

For a lower monthly cost, and without the requirement of benefits or annual raises, you can gain the services of a virtual or outsourced CFO with extensive experience.

In addition, you can choose to partner with a CFO who has extensive experience relating to your specific business challenges. In general, virtual or outsourced CFO agents have a wide-range of experience from which to draw. Having worked in companies like yours before, and overcome the associated challenges, you gain the skills of a seasoned professional to help achieve your growth goals.

PremierOne provides premier virtual and outsourced CFO services to small and medium enterprises Australia-wide.
