CFO Services in Canada

A CFO, or Chief Financial Officer, is responsible for all financial actions of a company. This includes financial planning, cash flow tracking, and financial analysis. A CFO provides valuable information and analysis for a company to grow and find opportunities that may otherwise be missed.

Having a CFO as part of your team can make the difference between record profitability with innovative ideas, and lost business opportunities with limited cash flow.

CFOs are highly trained and have extensive experience, coming equipped with specialized knowledge to push your business forward. This means hiring a CFO internally is expensive, and time spent onboarding is time you are losing to make your next move. If you’re a small or medium-sized business, you don’t have this time or money to waste.

The solution to this is outsourced CFO services. These remote CFO services allow you to gain the expertise you need to make sound financial decisions, market predictions, and find innovative ideas to secure your company’s financial future.

Start building your company’s path to financial success with an external CFO from Accountor CPA. We are the choice of businesses across Canada as a CFO consulting firm.

Part Time CFO Services

Part time CFO services, sometimes known as a shared CFO, are perfect for start-ups and SMEs that need the analysis and support of a CFO to grow their business, but are not yet large enough to support a full time CFO. We identify new growth strategies and provide methods to reduce and amalgamate costs - all at a fraction of the price of a full-time CFO.

Just because we are part time doesn’t mean you don’t get the support you need. We work with you to design, implement, and analyze growth plans to reach your goals and make sound financial decisions year-round.
