Outsourced Financial Director

Outsourced Financial Director
We work with companies as their outsourced Financial Directors.

What does a finance director do?

Your financial director must wear multiple hats, with cashflow and budget management essential to business stability and growth.

Here are just some of the responsibilities a director of finance requires:

  • Setting attainable targets and budgets
  • Building strategies that drive business growth
  • Ensuring the company is consistently complying with current and future legislation
  • Analysing financial performance
  • Creating policies
  • Minimising risks

And more. This is not only a big role; it involves numerous responsibilities.

Why should you opt for an outsourced director of finance?

At Gravitate Accounting, we firmly believe that everyone has strengths and weaknesses and that teamwork is essential. Therefore, rather than employ one person to take on this mammoth and vital role, why not employ an entire team whose combined skills and knowledge can push your business forward?

This is possible and can be cost-effective if you choose an outsourced finance director. We believe in building teams that fill talent and knowledge gaps to offer a greater service than the sum of its parts.

Frequently asked questions about outsourcing a finance director

Does a company need a finance director?

There are multiple benefits of hiring a finance director, some of which are listed at the top of this page; yet, many businesses choose not to go down this route because of the high costs. However, by outsourcing these duties, you gain all of the benefits at a fraction of the price.

What makes a good finance director?

Perhaps the most important skill a finance director should hold is a penchant for numbers and the ability to understand what these numbers mean for a business. Additional attributes include fantastic communication and people skills, knowledge of commercial operations, markets and consumer audiences and the ability to support the company’s chief executive.

These are just some of the skills required of an excellent finance director. Rather than trying to find one person who holds all of these abilities (which is a mammoth task in itself), why not hire an entire team with complementing skills and experiences?

Is a finance director the same as CFO?

While finance directors have similar responsibilities to CFOs, there is one key difference – a finance director is not considered a part of the senior executive team. That is why it is possible to outsource this role. We can get on with daily tasks and responsibilities while you focus on driving your business forward.
