How Outside CFO Works

Our Approach

Outside CFO is a team of CFOs with extensive finance experience who provide CFO consulting services on an on-demand basis to growth-stage companies, at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time finance executive.

Many companies who engage Outside CFO need recurring financial support, but do not yet require a full-time CFO. For these clients, our goal is to significantly reduce the Founder/CEO’s administrative burden, while professionalizing the company’s finance function in preparation for future growth. Our CFOs will work closely with your management team and internal finance group to develop an intimate understanding of both your business operations and financial objectives. Outside CFO delivers strategic, results-oriented advice, guiding businesses to maximize advantages while minimizing risk.

For companies looking for project-based support, such as implementing a new financial accounting system or building a financial model to raise equity or debt, our CFOs will work with you to define goals and determine the scope of work, project timeline and deliverables you will receive upon completion of the work. By managing the project from start to finish, Outside CFO offers an affordable and efficient option for handling work that falls outside the normal scope of the company’s financial operations.

Our Fees

Outside CFO structures client relationships in a flexible manner, to create the best fit for the companies we serve. This flexibility applies to our fee arrangements as well.

For clients who wish to have Outside CFO act as de facto CFO, with our executive dedicating up to 2 days/week to the client, we offer hourly, daily or weekly rates depending on the needs of the client. This part-time model translates to roughly one-third to one-half of the cost of hiring a full-time CFO.

For project-based arrangements, Outside CFO can work out an hourly or daily rate depending on the nature of the work. And we are always happy to supply hard estimates for specific projects, allowing you to budget and plan accordingly.
