Your business has already achieved success — yet, you’ve reached a point where you feel it needs an additional boost. Market stagnation, tough economic conditions, or budgeting inexperience — areas that slow growth and create inefficiency.

ATB Chartered Accountants and Business Mentors Virtual CFO in Australia service is your solution!

Supported by experienced financial professionals to steer, advise, and assist, your business will enjoy faster success — reaching the growth, revenue, and profitability targets you want.

What Is a Virtual Outsourced CFO Australia?


In short, a virtual Chief Financial Officer makes certain that the expertise your business demands will be there for the task — when it needs it.

More affordable and convenient than numerous in-house specialists, a Virtual CFO can fulfil numerous roles. This can include payroll manager, bookkeeper, market forecaster, or accountant.

As, let’s face it, most SMEs cannot afford a full-time employee in each of these job descriptions. Yet each area of expertise is vital.

So instead, our Virtual CFO Service slots a remote expert into these roles — as and when required. With no salaries, holiday pay, benefits, or office space and equipment to budget for.

The bottom line — your essential financial and reporting tasks are completed by us speedily, efficiently, and accurately.

And being a virtual CFO in Australia, we can support your business whether you are in Sydney, country NSW, any other Australian state, or even overseas, as is the case for the UK-based DASH Water.

Our Virtual CFO Services


As one of the best Virtual CFO services providers in Sydney, we take pride in our approach to remote assistance.

Together, we look at the whole of your business — asking questions such as:

  • What does the business do?
  • How is it organised?
  • What components can be automated?
  • What is the most efficient way to achieve task completion?
  • Who is best suited to doing these jobs?
  • How do we free up key personnel time — so they can work on their business instead of in their business?
  • What areas in your business have risk, and how do we mitigate them?
  • What can we do to help you achieve profit and growth?

Some businesses want or need nothing more than bookkeeping and compliance help — others may prefer a greater level of support and collaboration, such as five-year planning, mentoring, or resource reallocation. By using a Virtual CFO, you can scale up — or down — the resources required by your business.

Whatever your needs, your Virtual CFO consulting services are provided by experienced professionals with a single vision — boosting your business’s success.

The areas we cover in our external CFO services include:

  • Bookkeeping, payroll ledger management, and reporting compliance.
  • Cash flow solutions and management — both long and short-term.
  • Key metrics determination, monitoring, and reporting.
  • Business mentorship, advice, and consulting.
  • Directing and focusing any existing in-house account team members.

Manage Your Risk in Business


Your business is running smoothly and profitably today, but unexpected events could threaten its success tomorrow — or even lead to a game-over situation.

At ATB Partners – Chartered Accountants and Business Mentors, we help defend your livelihood.

Larger SMEs and rapidly growing businesses are most at threat. With so much focus on day-to-day operations, it’s easy to forget — or not even consider — business-damaging risks.

That’s why our Virtual CFO service includes essential risk assessment — not just looking at how to reduce risk in business, but also how to manage your financial risk.

The truth is, threats are everywhere — in your staff, finances, utilities, or IT systems. You could lose a key employee through illness or injury, your bank might withdraw finance essential for cash flow, or a flood may temporarily close operations.

ATB Chartered Accountants and Business Mentors work with you to identify the areas of threat in your business. Then, depending on the type of risk, advise how to:

  • Eliminate — make the threat non-existent.
  • Reduce — lower the chances of a risk.
  • Accept — steps to reduce damaging effects, where a risk cannot be reduced or eliminated.

All businesses are different. That’s why we create risk reduction and management solutions to address your particular threats.

These can include:

  • Managing asset protection.
  • Implementing relevant insurance — assets, key man, debtors, public/product liability, directors and officers, transit, and
  • business interruption insurance.
  • Creating legal and applicable HR policies and employment contracts.
  • Managing data and cyber security.
  • Building protective contracts with suppliers, subcontractors, and customers.
  • Ensuring IP is owned and protected.
  • Building internal controls.
  • Ensuring stock security.
  • Understanding bank covenants on finance.

Risk management is typically an area ignored or not understood by most bookkeepers and accountants. We are specialists, defending your business through this feature of our Virtual CFO service.

Business Blueprint — Planning for Success


The backbone of our Virtual CFO service is our bespoke Business Blueprint — the second stage in our 5 Steps to Taking Control. This document provides a complete overview — allowing you to make evidence-based decisions.

More than just a forecasting and budgeting outline, it illustrates the real-time position of your business, areas where it’s succeeding, and crucially — underperforming aspects.

Together we will drill down into the valuable information, grasping exactly what the numbers say about your business, and methods that will lead to improved cash flow and performance.

Typically, it functions as a comprehensive:

  • Mini-business plan.
  • Budget.
  • Cash flow.
  • Current and projected balance sheet.
  • Operational metric indicator.
  • Ratio analysis — communicating your business’s interrelated profitability, efficiency, and liquidity.

Cost Efficiency


Experienced CFOs with track records of success don’t come cheap. In addition to a substantial salary, your business will need to budget for their benefits, holiday pay, and sick pay.

Outsourced CFO Sydney

Strategies With Overview


Although your CFO may not be sitting in your office, they will have a thorough grasp of your financial position, challenges, liabilities, and targets.

As they can see the bigger picture — and are away from the day-to-day duties and responsibilities of running and managing a business that can cloud judgement — they can provide valuable insight for planning and problem-solving.

Virtual Chief Financial Officer

Powerful Resource Management and Allocation


As a business owner or manager, while your skill set makes you an expert in your industry, that doesn’t automatically mean you’re a financial maestro.

Too often, entrepreneurs, or their trusted staff members, have the burden of acting as a CFO as a cost-saving measure — with little experience or knowledge. This can lead not only to mistakes, but can also prevent key staff from fulfilling their usual job duties.

Letting a Virtual CFO take the strain releases you and your staff — meaning you can all do what you enjoy and do best.

External CFO Services

An Experienced Financial Controller and Reporting On Hand


Your remote CFO service can tackle the duties of bookkeeping, sales and purchase ledgers, and reconciling your bank account — or manage and advise any in-house bookkeepers.

They will produce detailed reports — for you, key staff, and/or stakeholders — with the metrics and periods you ask for. Typically, these may include:

  • Monthly profit and loss.
  • Balance sheet.
  • Divisional reports.
  • Accounts payable and receivable.
  • Monthly performance review.
  • Updated forecasting.
  • Actuals vs forecasts and budget — as part of our Business Blueprint.
  • Metrics.
  • Cash flows — historic, current, future, and rolling.
