Who needs CFO services?

At TopCFO, we believe that once businesses get to a certain size, there is a real need for a professional CFO. While we often provide CFO services for mid sized companies, we have partnered with smaller and larger businesses as well.

Engaging a professional company that delivers CFO services can particularly benefit small and mid-sized businesses, which often see their financial situations become more complex as they grow.

Many of these companies don’t have room on their payroll to hire a full-time CFO and lack the in-house financial experience they need to make informed strategic, long-term and day-to-day decisions.

Outsourcing the CFO function is a way to bring on much-needed financial expertise on a flexible and affordable basis.

TopCFO – my way of CFO services


TopCFO will work to develop a true and thorough understanding of how your business operates so we can provide you with the best financial information and data. Sharing and collaborating with the people who can offer insight and advice in key business areas.

The success of our services relies on ongoing and consistent collaboration with people who are involved in the day-to-day issues of your business and work as part of your team.

All of TopCFO clients have retained a CPA to assist their company with key accounting functions.  These CPAs play a key role in advising the company in areas such as tax planning and by preparing tax returns and certifying financial statements. Whether their businesses are just getting off the ground or established and growing, all of our clients realize an outside CPA is critical to their success. And we agree!

TopCFO is not a certified public accounting firm — and we don’t try to be.   We can’t do the high end, specialized services that a CPA firm can do.
Like business owners and managers, we are forward looking.  We understand having the best grasp possible of your business is the key to making the biggest impact. That’s why our CFO services are designed to engage all of the key people involved in your company’s financial operations.

Using this collaborative model allows TopCFO to deliver CFO services that make the biggest strides toward your goals and for you to make the best financial decisions for today and tomorrow.
