Many small businesses, regardless of their circumstances, require a Finance Director but don’t need someone full time.

A Finance Director controls key financial matters and supports a business by overseeing and implementing its financial strategy. He will support the existing management team by assisting with business plans, helping with the implementation of development plans, and other key aspects that affect profitability and cash flow.


The Finance Director’s role is not a passive one, challenging your business views and opinions is key to ensuring your future plans and direction is financially viable.
The role is primarily to help businesses to excel and succeed, and to help them identify ways in which they can improve, develop and grow financially. No business should be without a Finance Director, even if for one day a month.

However it is absolutely essential that the right individual for your business is chosen. Small businesses invariably need the help of a hands on individual who can assist with the nitty gritty day to day problems as well as the strategic issues. Cashflow issues, computer system problems, business process inefficiencies to name but a few.


The cost of employing a Full Time Finance Director can be prohibitive, in excess of £100,000 per annum. Most businesses however do not need this level of support.
