Once your company has a quality bookkeeper that can handle most of the daily tasks, your growth requires a higher level of expertise offered by an outsourced controller. Incorporating this senior role on a part-time basis can give your company the comfort that GAAP financial statements are prepared accurately and timely, that information flows properly to your CPA firm, and that policies can be implemented to support more complex accounting and finances.
Similar to a CFO, a controller can help your company better manage, interpret, and forecast business performance. If your company’s operating strategy is clearly defined, then a controller can ensure proper procedures are in place for accurate budget versus actual reporting, tracking sales teams results, or projecting cash flow to handle seasonality trends, a drop-off in business, or an investment into new growth areas.
While you’re busy meeting with top customers to grow your top-line, your controller can oversee your bookkeeper, establish internal controls, screen potential new hires for team additions, and ensure that roles and responsibilities are clearly defined for your sign-off. Ultimately, if your company needs a full-time controller, we can help by bridging the gap until you meet the right candidate and by helping you find a full-time match.
