Most frequent questions and answers
Outsourcing senior finance role such as Finance Controller, Finance Manager or a CFO brings a significant number of benefits for SMEs and startups. It gives you access to highly skilled finance professionals to help without the high cost of a full-time executive hire.
We work with a broad range of businesses, but our services are particularly well-suited for startups and SMEs at various stages of growth. However, we believe there is no one-size-fits-all in business, so we encourage potential clients to have a conversation with us to assess how we could best support their financial needs.
We do not cover bookkeeping postings, payroll preparation, or tax filing. Understanding these details upfront can assist you in making an informed decision and foster a more productive and effective partnership. The rationale behind this is that you are likely to find more cost-effective solutions for these statutory obligations through an accounting service firm or in-house staff. Moreover, we believe that these areas are not where a seasoned senior finance professional can add significant value to your business. Our core mission at Valuefinex is to provide services where we can truly add value.
Our contracts are designed with flexibility in mind. You can choose the duration and volume of our services to match your needs. Plus, you can adjust the level of support or cancel your contract at any time. Our aim is to be there for you when you need us and adjust as your business grows.
