The Specifics

Cash Flow Budgeting

Your OCFO will assist you in drawing up a business strategy, and introduce you to a network of potential suppliers and partners to increase the sustainability of your business.

Risk & Internal Control Overview

In order to identify and manage business risks, we perform a detailed analysis of your business cycle and operating environment.

Financial Decision-making

The on-going financial decisions that are part of operating a business have an impact on your resources. Whether you need to decide on buying versus renting your premises or machinery, or when to employ someone new, your OCFO can help you identify all the quantitative and qualitative variables and implications so you can make an informed decision that is right for your business.

Post-investment Financial Management

Where venture capital and private equity are concerned, your OCFO can act as post-investment financial manager. Where an investor has bought a material stake in a private company, but is not directly involved with business management, we place a chartered accountant into the business to actively monitor and report on financial decision-making and performance to the investor. Having a qualified financial professional actively involved in investee companies offers great peace of mind to the funding partner.

Business Analysis & Cost Structuring

We analyse your revenue and cost streams and identify areas that are not running efficiently. All fixed and variable costs are reviewed to help your business run at maximum capacity.

Investment & Funding Readiness Implementation

To get your business primed for outside funding and investment, your OCFO will identify areas that need improvement and implement strategies to address those areas.

Accounting Training

We analyse your accounting system, and proper training is given to your accountant in all aspects of best practice financial management and financial reporting standards.

Strategy & Synergies

Your OCFO will assist you in drawing up a business strategy, and introduce you to a network of potential suppliers and partners to increase the sustainability of your business.

Implementation of Management Accounts

We identify deliverables, and set up a proper system of management accounting. Your OCFO will then review these accounts on a monthly basis along with management to identify financial and cash flow risks and to set goals for figures and ratios, The OCFO will also give advice on ways to save money and optimise revenue.

Ad Hoc Engagements

Additional services such as compilation of financial statements, audit readiness engagements, financial plan set-up and reviews, financial due diligence are also available. Whatever your financial advice and management needs are, we are here to help.
