Grow Your Business with Finance Experts
Change and growth is part of every healthy business. There is no rule dictating when you should hire new finance experts. However, if you are not confident that your company is running at maximum efficiency, it could be time to expand your finance team by hiring a new finance expert.
Below is a selection of finance experts to compliment your business needs now, and in the years ahead.
If you are not sure what a bookkeeper does, then you’re probably wondering if you need one. Bookkeepers can either be entry level or full charge. Entry level bookkeepers generally perform basic tasks such as data entry of financial transactions and maintaining the chart of accounts. Full charge bookkeepers have more responsibilities, however, even though they perform more complex tasks, their responsibilities are not usually as advanced as the responsibilities of an accountant. The bookkeeper will:
- Maintain and track financial records.
- Manage payroll, invoicing, basic finance reporting requirements.
- Track sales and cash flow, monitor revenue and expense projections, and prepare budget reports.
- Prepare business financial records for review and certification by accountants who work with the IRS as needed.
It’s time to hire an accountant when finance tracking and reporting requirements exceed the bookkeeper role. The accountant you hire can oversee and expand the financial capacity of your business. The accountant provides you with:
- Ledger, reconciliation, and periodic statement management.
- Skills for managing international accounts as those develop.
- The ability to identify tax break options and ways to contain costs.
Your accountant will maintain your financial systems through growth until it’s time to consider the need for a controller.
Prepare to hire a controller when your business requires complex financial systems and procedures to manage growth and financial regulations. The controller:
- Works with the accounting manager on financial functions.
- Provides long-term forecasting and financial planning.
- Brokers credit lines and terms.
Chief Financial Officer (CFO)
This role serves your business by:
- Managing all financial processes and procedures.
- Guiding business development or necessary reorganization.
- Identifying financial and business trends, forecasting potential growth targets.
