Why Does My Startup Need a Fractional Controller?
Balancing the day-to-day managerial tasks of your business' financial operations can be challenging, stressful, and time-consuming. If you don't have an expert on your team that understands accounting principles and software, it can be hard to keep your books organized and in compliance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).
Our fractional controller in San Diego provides affordable oversight and advisory services on a part-time or contract basis. Our primary responsibilities include maintaining accurate financial reporting, interpreting your data, and keeping your executives informed of the startup's status. We diligently maintain compliance with all applicable local, state, and federal financial laws and regulations. By providing strategies to help you maintain a steady profit, we help you pursue your goals confidently and efficiently.
We'll implement an effective bookkeeping system that allows you to conveniently access and analyze your figures at a moment's notice. Additionally, we help you strengthen your controls and operating methods to reduce risk and protect your hard-earned revenue. You'll find our team to be analytical, precise, and hardworking. We carefully tailor our approach to match your needs and objectives and provide the best possible return on your investment.
How Does a Fractional Controller's Role Differ From a CFO's?
Contrary to popular belief, the role of a fractional controller is considerably different from that of a fractional chief financial officer (CFO). Depending on your startup's current status, you may benefit most from the services of an outsourced controller, CFO, or both.
A controller takes responsibility for the financial operations of the company. A controller may generate reports, create budgets, oversee compliance, shape financial tactics, and convey information to senior executives and shareholders.
A CFO provides financial forecasting, analyzes key performance indicators, analyzes records, implements budgets, and monitors your overarching financial strategies. Commonly, a fractional CFO is brought in to handle a particularly complex situation that a company does not have the expertise or personnel to resolve internally.
If you're uncertain whether a fractional controller or CFO best fits your startup's current needs, get in touch with our friendly team at Simplexity. We can help you decide whether one of our firm's San Diego fractional controllers or CFOs best matches your operating methods, objectives, and challenges..
