Is your small business growing by leaps and bounds right now? If you’re generating millions of dollars worth of revenue and adding new employees on a regular basis, you should probably have a Chief Financial Officer, also known as a CFO, in place.

Check out some other signs that it’s time to hire a part-time CFO for your small business:
You haven’t created a long-term financial strategy
As the owner of a small business, your goal is for your company to continue to grow well into the future. You want it to profitable for many decades to come rather than just fizzling out after a few years. In order for this to happen, you need to have a long-term financial strategy complete with realistic financial goals. A CFO can put a plan of action into place and help your company achieve the financial goals that you set.
You suspect your company’s spending might be out of control
Once a small business starts to generate steady profits, it’s easy for their spending to get out of control. If you feel as though your company is currently spending too much money in certain areas, an outsourced CFO can solve your problem. They can perform a financial analysis and make financial projections to keep your company on track as far as your finances are concerned. They can also look for clever ways to cut costs to make your company even more profitable than it already is.
The various departments in your company aren’t working well together
While CFOs spend a lot of their time thinking about the financial well-being of a company, they also play an important role when it comes to encouraging the various departments within a company to work together. They’re often tasked with keeping the accounting, IT, and HR departments in check and can make your company more cohesive.
