The Role of a CFO

What does a CFO do?

A CFO’s (Chief Finance Officer’s) role is to get fully engaged in your business. They regularly drill down into your financials to help you plan, forecast and monitor financial performance. A CFO can provide valuable help to you in the follow areas:

  • Help you strategize, plan and operate your business to your maximum financial advantage.
  • Analyse results in the context of the company’s objectives and strategies.
  • Plan and consider how financial transactions will be booked, consistent with the objectives and strategies of the business.
  • Work with your internal Finance function (bookkeeper or Financial Controller) and/or external Accountant.
  • Focus on a clean, quick, and solid closing of the books within days of the end of the period.
  • Establish key indicators that provide early warning for management.
  • Work to maximize the value of the business to the owners.
  • Ensure you (the owner or CEO) understand the financials, the trends and the issues they identify.
